Benefit golf tournament set for Saturday

DUNCAN, Okla._A benefit golf tournament is set for Saturday, October 10 at the Twin Oaks Golf Club in Duncan.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the families affected by a motorcycle crash in April 2015. The crash involved riders from the Moose Lodge Club.

One of their riders, Monty Howell, was killed on April 11 when the group was hit by a pickup on Highway 81 near Comanche. Five other riders were hurt.

Howell’s son, Cory, organized the event in his father’s honor to help the other families with medical expenses. Howell said he chose the Twin Oaks Golf Club because of the memories.  

"I was with dad when he hit his hole-in-one on number nine and he didn't see it go in. It was just one of those things where he walked up and saw it in there, just his laugh, waking up every morning at six am to come out here and play golf with him," said Howell.

The tournament is a two-man golf tournament. It costs $150 per team. There were 25 teams signed up Friday. However, anyone who wants to play can register at the Twin Oaks Golf Club at 8:00 a.m.
