+ McKitrick scores 186th victory
Longboat Key golfer Arlene McKitrick won her 186th tournament in the American Senior Golfers Tournament, at the Grove Park Inn, in Asheville, N.C.
McKitrick reports that she’s been working with golf instructor David Leadbetter, of the Leadbetter Golf Academy, over the past six months and feels like she has found the golfer’s fountain of youth. In fact, she says she’s hitting the ball better than she did 30 years ago.
McKitrick has won six tournaments this year and was a runner-up in the seventh.
