Asheboro man contends in Four-Ball event

WILSON – An Asheboro golfer was among the contenders in the North Carolina Super Senior Four-Ball Championships last month.

Charlie Parks of Asheboro and playing partner Doug Owens of Albemarle placed third in the 65-and-older division at Wilson Country Club.

Parks and Owens had rounds 71 and 67 for a two-round total of 6-under-par 138.

That left them a shot behind the tandems of Surf City’s Gary Howze / Claremont’s Randall Sullins and Morrisville’s Preston Edmondson / Pinehurst’s Steve Fox among the 28 teams in the division.

Edmondson and Fox claimed the championship on the second playoff hole.
