|Johns win at Panola|
Jerry Johns never envisioned the words "club champion" by his name.
But after shooting a 74 on Saturday and Sunday to finish at 148, Johns is just that, claiming his first-ever Panola Woods Men's Championship.
"I was very doubtful I would ever win this in my life," Johns said. "But God gave it to me, He gave me something I wanted. It's something I may not do again."
The 58-year-old Johns began playing golf at the age of 48.
"Somebody asked me, 'What did you do,?'" Johns said. "I said, 'I don't know.'"
Johns said he hit the ball solid Saturday and Sunday. His best shot came on the final hole off the tee.
"I never asked anybody where they were at and I never knew where I stood, although I knew I was playing well," he said. "On the 18th hole Sunday, I used a driver and hit the longest drive I have ever hit. I was just feeling confident. And then it kind of set in and my next shot it felt like I was swinging an anvil. I was able to get up and down and bogey that hole. Fortunately, it turns out I had about a three-stroke lead at that time. I just feel real fortunate. My son (Josh Johns) walked up to me afterwards and said, 'Dad, you won.' And I about broke down and cried."
Johns trailed Cliff McGlothin by three strokes after Saturday's play, but McGlothin shot an 80 on Sunday to finish in second place at 151.
Defending champion Richard Criswell placed third at 154. Wayne Miley also shot a 154 to win the Super Seniors Championship.
Babe Huff shot a 156 to finish fourth.
Shane Young finished with a 158, while Pat Hinson came in at 163. Mitch Ashmore rounded out the first flight with a 166 after shooting a 77 on the first day. Ashmore, seeking his 13th title, was bothered by an injured wrist.
Larry Wagoner won the first flight and the Senior Club Championship with a 159.
Tying for second were Coye Pace and George Cupit at 161. Jeremy Wood was fourth at 162.
Jack Bonner won the second flight and the Net Club Championship with a 156 (136 with handicap). Greg Clayton and Billy Risher tied for second at 175, while Josh Johns and Doug Wike tied for fourth at 176.
Capturing the third flight was Clyde Savoy at 164. Bobby Enterkin was second at 171. Lee Rife was third at 176. John Rife and Phil Lindley tied for fourth at 177.
Larry Reynolds won the fourth flight at 175, while Buddy Tims was second at 186. George Sewell placed third at 189 and Matt Maroon was fourth at 193.
Panola Woods will host its annual Fuss N' Cuss Tournament August 27-28.
