koelble@herald-mail.com Brandon Sheaffer shot a 92 in the inaugural Junior Masters Tour tournament at Beaver Creek Country Club on June 17. A likely choice to win the Masters championship based on that performance? Slim, at that time. However, Sheaffer's game has come full cycle over six weeks, evidenced by his 5-over-par 77 on Thursday to become the first champion to have his name engraved on the Masters plaque, which will hang on the walls in the Beaver Creek pro shop.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - As TB Wood's Inc. celebrated its 150th anniversary on Saturday, the community had a chance learn more about the company and longtime employees could reflect on working there. The hundreds of people who attended the party had the chance to take a tour of TB Wood's, were treated to a free meal and could check out antique cars and games. "Our big goal is - there's a lot of people in Chambersburg who don't know what TB Wood's does," said Tracey Schroder, marketing services manager for the company.

The diameter of a cup on a golf green is supposed to be 4.25 inches. Ashley Grier would have preferred them to be 4.35 on Saturday. For a second straight day, Grier posted an even-par 72 in the Symetra Tour's Challenge at Musket Ridge, leaving her at even-par 144 for the tournament - good enough to make the cut for Sunday's final round. Grier posted a 2-under 34 on the front nine Saturday, which could have been much lower. “I could have been 4 or 5 under just on the front nine,” said Grier.

Bob Verdeyen has struck again. Getting a hole-in-one twice in a week this summer was a feat in itself, but the Hagerstown golfer went out and added to his list of accomplishments last Sunday with another ace at Beaver Creek Country Club. For the third time in 55 days, Verdeyen knocked down a hole-in-one. He used a 6-iron on the eighth hole, which was playing from 138 yards. He was playing with Jim and Julie Hart. He had aced No. 8 on July 24 with a 7-iron from 130. “The pin was back and there was a little breeze so I went with the 6-iron,” said Verdeyen.

Hagerstown resident Bob Verdeyen, a member at Beaver Creek Country Club, will be on the golf course today with the usual morning gang of players. The burning question: Can Verdeyen make it three weeks in a row with a hole-in-one? Some golfers make holes-in-one left and right, some go forever without one, as I have. Many articles list the chances at 12,000 to 1 of making one. In each of the last two Sundays, Verdeyen has posted a hole-in-one, giving him three in his golf career.

BALTIMORE - Cal Ripken Jr. will forever be known as the Iron Man, a fitting title for the most durable athlete in the rich history of the sport known as America's Pastime. The nickname captures the perseverance of the former Baltimore Orioles star, who played in 2,632 consecutive games from 1982-98. It would be an injustice, however, to summarize the spectacular 21-year career of Calvin Edwin Ripken Jr. solely by The Streak. In assessing Ripken's affect on baseball, his peers and the fans who cheered for him, there are two words more appropriate than Iron & Man: Awe and respect.

At her home in Afghanistan, Wasima Naseer could not have stepped outside after dark without a man by her side. Naseer, who is studying economics and international studies at Wilson College, a women's college in Chambersburg, Pa., said she was "scared" the first time she walked alone after dark nearly a year ago in Oregon. Naseer, 22, said that now, running errands and stepping outside by herself has become "normal. " It has been more than 80 years since women in the United States won the right to vote and it has been about five years since women in Afghanistan broke with some of the country's male-dominated traditions.

gregs@herald-mail.com THURMONT, Md. - Mark Spurrier, a naturalist and storyteller at Cunningham Falls State Park, puckered his face and blew. "Crprhshhhhhhhhhh! That's what it sounded like all the time," Spurrier said Saturday afternoon standing outside the remains of the "Isabella" furnace, a few steps off U.S. 15 north of Frederick, Md. If you were unlucky enough to be one of the hundreds of workers - either slaves or poor immigrants - at the Catoctin Furnace Iron Works, Spurrier said, probably the only thing you would hear with any regularity was the rush of hot air produced from hundreds of pounds of coal melting iron ore. The ore, once refined, was shipped up and down the East Coast from 1774 to 1903.
