Corbett in the money at PGA Senior meet

At Teton Springs

Sun Valley Resort PGA teaching professional Doyle Corbett of Ketchum earned a $540 payday for his sixth-place finish in the Rocky Mountain Section Senior PGA Professional Championship on July 17-18 at Teton Springs in Victor.

Corbett turned in a 36-hole card of 71-74 for one-over-par 145 on the par-72, 6,873-yard Headwaters Club golf course in eastern Idaho near the Teton Mountains. The field of 29 consisted of Rocky Mountain PGA Senior members from southern Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

He ended up with 23 pars and seven birdies among his scores over the 36 holes played Tuesday and Wednesday.

Winning the top prize of $1,300 for taking first place on the fourth playoff hole was Section "Player of the Year" leader Jim Empey, PGA director of instruction at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Boise. Empey (27 pars, 6 birdies) shot 71-70 for three-under-par 141. He nipped John Graham of Idaho Falls.

Empey, Graham and three other top finishers qualified for the Senior PGA Professional National Championship Oct. 11-14 in Virginia. Corbett narrowly missed qualifying for nationals with his sixth place.

Valley Club teaching professional Tommy Sanderson placed 11th Wednesday for $360 with scores of 73-77 for six-over-par 150. Former local golf pro David Hardison tied for 21st at 81-79 for 160, for 16-over-par, and Buhl's John Weekes finished 28th at 91-82 for 173.
