HOUSTON, Tex. (May 20, 2011) --Ted Smith, Wilkinson, IN slept on a five shot lead before starting the final round of the 2011 Society of Seniors John Kline Super Senior event and at the end of 54 holes, his lead remained unscathed. Smith fired a 1-under par 70 for a 54 hole total of 212, good for a five shot victory over Jim Hays of Prosper, TX.
Don Addington of Dallas, posted the low round of the event, carding a fine 4-under par 67 to lap the field in the over 75 group. Addington's three day total of 217 was 11 shots better than Bill Stallings of Mclean, VA at 228. Romie Holder, Tulsa, OK won the 80 and over division with a final round 78 and 244 total, nipping Carl Ahrens, Houston, TX by a single shot.
The Champions Golf Club lived up to all expectations, the course was exceptional under the watch of superintendent Charles Joachim, the golf shop staff under head pro Tad Weeks was a pleasure to work with and the food could only be described as fantastic. One member complained, "The plates are too small".
The Society of Seniors is honored to have the Champions Club on it's roster of host clubs. This will be a hard act to top.
