This year’s Tennessee Senior Professional Championship at Old Natchez Country Club had perfect weather both days and treated Richard Rebne well. Richard Rebne, of Ringgold, GA, captured his 2nd Senior Professional Championship trophy, his second in two years.

Rebne finished on top of the leaderboard with a low score of 1-under through 36 holes. Rebne completed his Tuesday round with a score of 69, just enough to solely claim first place. “My wife has already put last year’s trophies in the attic,” said Rebne. “It is nice to win some new ones to display.”
This year, the Tennessee Section had 5 qualifying spots to go to Port St. Lucie, FL to play in the Senior Professional National Championship at the Wanamaker Course. Rounding out the spots of qualifying contestants are Steve Munson, Audie Johnson, David Hallford, and Joey Hickman. This was a Level One event, making it very competitive.
The low round of this year’s Championship was completed by Steve Munson on Tuesday. Munson shot a 2-under-par, 68. This was enough for Munson to secure a qualifying spot and narrowly miss first place by 2 strokes. Audie Johnson and David Hallford tied for 3rdplace two strokes behind Munson, sending Johnson and Munson to Port St. Lucie for the second year in a row. Joey Hickman finished only one stroke behind Johnson and Hallford to round out the 5 qualifying spots.
