Area’s Top Golfers 55 and Up Tee It Up in 8th Senior Cities

September 13, 2018

WESTFORD -- Three former champions will be among the 48 players teeing it up in the eighth annual Lowell Senior City Golf Tournament on Friday at Nabnasset Lake CC.

Bob Scannell, Jack Hassett and George Popp are the ex-champs in the field.

Popp won last year’s event when he defeated Dan Brown in a playoff that extended into the following week. The two both shot 75 at Vesper CC and played one playoff hole before play was suspended by darkness.

Brown is not in the field this year. He has won two Senior City Tournaments, as have Scannell and Hassett.

Among those that are in the field are former Men’s City Tournament champions Popp and Ken Hughes, and three-time senior Cities runner-up Peter Harrison.

Competition is held in the Senior (55-up) and Super Senior (65-up) divisions. Team standings are also kept. Nab is hosting for the first time.
