Helen Weil, who turned 100 this month, continues to keep herself and her golf game sharp at Seven Springs Golf and Country Club.

Helen Weil celebrated her 100th birthday on March 2 by doing her favorite thing: playing a round of golf.

She played at Seven Springs Golf and Country Club, where her family held a party for her. Weil has been playing for more than 30 years and keeps active on the golf course.

"She doesn't hit them as far as she used to but she can sink a 10-foot putt," Weil's friend Pam Helmold said. "She's so articulate and a sort of a mother figure to everyone. She's inspirational to be living this long and still be out playing golf."

  4. Analysis: George W. Bush's unmistakable takedown of Trumpism - and Trump

    Columns

    For the last nine years, George W.
