Cobb wins for third time in 5 years

Belle Meade Country Club held its annual Club Championship golf tournament Saturday and Sunday at the club's golf course.

"This has been an annual event at the club since 1968," said golf shop manager Clark Willingham. "Participation is limited to members of the club, and we have four divisions, the Junior Division, Regular Division, and Senior and Super Senior divisions."

The Junior Division completed its competition on Saturday, with Connor Corbitt winning the division with a score of 82. Brothers Alex and Turner Gilliam tied for second in the division, each with a score of 85.

As an amateur competition, players were competing for little more than bragging rights.

"We can't offer any cash prizes, 'cause then they'd have to turn pro," Willingham said. "But the first-, second-, and third-place winners do receive gift certificates from the golf shop, and the winner has his name added to the plaques commemorating the tournaments over the years."

In the regular division, Aaron Cobb began play Sunday at the top of the leader board, having shot a 68 on Saturday.

"No one will catch him," Willingham predicted Sunday afternoon. "He's the best player in the club, and this will be the third time he's won it in the last five years."

Willingham proved prescient, as Cobb went on to win the tournament, shooting a 71 on Sunday for a combined tournament score of 139. Second place went to Brian Corbitt with a combined score of 146.

David Joesbury won the Senior Division, with a combined score of 151, and Bob Ballard won the Super Senior Division with a combined score of 160.
