Golf champs defend title

Nelson Mayton and Danny Houchins of Crewe won their third straight Member-Guest title Sunday at Nottoway River Country Club.

The long-hitting duo shot 9-under-par 63 in Best Ball play Saturday, then managed 7-under 65 to finish the two-day event at 16-under-par 128 and a four-shot victory. They won the tournament last year at 17-under.

Their winning score this year, however, may be more impressive because six of the club’s nine Mini Verde Bermuda greens, plus the practice green, suffered significant winter kill.
