NASCAR driver David Reutimann's golf tourney Nov. 29

David Reutimann is going to stick to driving during his golf event.

When he hosts his Fourth- Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Nov. 29 at Silverado Golf and Country Club, nearly in the heart of his hometown of Zephyrhills, he doesn't plan on playing a round, though the No. 00 Aaron's Toyota driver, who is ranked in the Sprint Cup Standings, will be there.

"He doesn't play golf," event organizer Brock Williamson said with a laugh. "Anyone who knows David knows that when it comes to other sports, he's really the racing guy. He'll be sticking to a golf cart, driving around and making fun of a few people like he did last year."

Reutimann, who graduated from Zephyrhills High School, will also be the host of a Charity Cookout and Auction on Nov. 28 at 6 p.m., which people can go to for $20 and children are free. Cost is $150 per person for both the cookout and the golf event, which begins at 9 a.m. Proceeds will benefit All Children's Hospital and Kids Go To Camp.

"It started off as a small charity event of him to hang with family and friends, and it's really grown into an anticipated event now," Williamson said. "With him being a local guy, for NASCAR lovers and this area, this is really the only premiere charity event."

For information, call Williamson at (813) 277-4271.

HOLE IN ONES: Magnolia Valley Golf Club in New Port Richey saw an impressive feat: a hole in one on a par 4 hole. Milt LaFleur basically swung his Cobra driver as hard as he could, bagging the accomplishment on the 265-yard No. 2 hole.

There was also a hole in one at the Links Golf Club in Hudson on Nov. 1. Dave Matthews using a gap wedge on No. 11, sunk his shot from 110 yards.

RESULTS: At the Saturday Scramble on Nov. 1 at Meadow Oaks Golf and Country Club in Hudson, the team of Mel Coots, Don Turner, John Steele and Linda Turner finished first with a 14 under par, and at the Friday Scramble, the team of Al Trudeau, Joe Shimko, Carol Stafford and Judy Ackerman finished on top with a 12 under par.
