The 40th anniversary of the Security State Bank golf tournament attracted 14 three-person teams to Midway Golf Club last weekend. Each team’s two best net scores were used as the scoring format for the two-day tournament.

This year’s tournament champions were Dave Williamson, Curt Massey and Jonathan Baker, who shot rounds of 125-135. Second place went to Carl Olson, Ed Johnson, and Ken Johnson after rounds of 129-133.  The third place team was Doug and Thayer Crouse and Joe Martin, who carded rounds of 132-131.

Jonathan Baker shot a 61 on Saturday, the lowest round ever shot in the 40-year history of the tournament. A resident of Phoenix, Jonathan is the husband of Greybull native Melissa Good, who is the daughter of Kelli Williamson and Leonard Good.

The tournament also recognized a gross champion, which is the best team score without any handicap. Tom Zierolf, Chris Bundren and Jeff Vail were the gross champions with rounds of 137-148.

The annual derby, which pairs the seven best local qualifying scores with the seven best out-of-town qualifiers, was played after Saturday’s round.  Massey and Baker won it, followed in second by Michael McColloch and Laura Sutherland and in third by Doug Crouse and Chris Bundren.
