WEEKI WACHEE -- Jeff Seavey of Portland, Maine, fired a 3-under 69 on Feb. 10 to win the Shootout at the Dunes, a weekly professional competition.
Rusty Stocker, a Homosassa-based pro who has competed in several PGA qualifying schools, finished second with a 2-under 70, tied with Matt Eaton (Seabrook, N.H.).
Joe Cioe, a Nike Tour veteran from Crystal River, was fourth with a 1-under 71.
A Shootout is scheduled for every Saturday through April at The Dunes.
TANGERINE: The 30th annual Tangerine Invitational will be played March 24-25 at Brooksville Golf & Country Club.
Sixteen flights will be offered in the 36-hole stroke-play event, including a championship bracket.
The entry fee is $125, and all handicaps must be certified by a PGA professional. The deadline to enter is March 17. Call (352) 796-8879 for information.
MONK TOURNAMENT: The second-annual Jim Monk Scholarship Tournament is scheduled for 8 a.m. April 21 at Rivard Golf & Country Club.
The entry fee is $39, which includes greens fees, a cart and buffet.
Prizes will be awarded for the top three teams in the four-person scramble. They also will be given for longest drive and closest-to-the-pin (on par-3 holes).
Individuals may sign up in their own teams or be assigned groups.
Proceeds benefit the Jim Monk Scholarship fund, which last year awarded $300 to Meenal Patel (Hernando High), Peter A. Schumacher, Kimberly Darienzo and Suzanne Cramer (Springstead) and Shayna Strally (Central).
Monk, a retired professional golfer and a volunteer golf coach at Springstead High, founded his scholarship fund two years ago to help offset local kids' college expenses.
