bobp@herald-mail.com Kenny Smith knocked one of the items off his "Things I must do before I die" list and did it by drawing from an old lesson. "I've been trying to win (the WACO Open) for four years," the Waynesboro, Pa., resident said. "I came close one year, but I choked in the second round. " This time, Smith found a remedy for that "choking" problem. He took the second round out of the picture and rendered it to nothing more than a formality. Smith fired a 2-under 70 to back up his tournament-record 67 of the first round for a two-day score of 137 to win the 19th annual WACO Open in record-setting fashion Sunday by six shots over Chuck Ingram and Charlie Narciso at Beaver Creek Country Club.

koelble@herald-mail.com Kenny Smith withstood an unexpected challenger to win the Black Rock Miller Lite Amateur on Sunday. Smith, of Waynesboro, Pa., fired a second straight 3-under-par 69 to finish at 6-under 138 to beat unknown Bernie Deane, of Frederick, Md., by two shots for the title and a $500 first-place certificate. Deane, who plays out of VFW in Frederick, started the day 2-over and played two holes ahead of Smith. He launched a 5-under 31 on the front nine to make the turn at 3-under, one stroke behind Smith.

Kenny Smith fashioned a walk to the cup on the 15th green similar to those by Tiger Woods when he's on a roll. Smith, known as the "Mighty Munchkin," had his fist forward as he charged to pick up his golf ball after sinking a 15-foot eagle putt, the highlight of his sterling 5-under-par 67 Saturday in the first round of the 23rd WACO Championship on Saturday at Beaver Creek Country Club. "The greens rolled good and I made some putts," said Smith, the 2002 WACO champion from Waynesboro, Pa. Known for his long drives, including a 351-yard bomb in Friday's Long Drive competition, the 5-foot-6 Smith used his big weapon to set up a 6-iron on 15. "The driver was still a little crooked today," said Smith, who used it only on six holes, leaning more toward his 4-wood off the tee. Smith takes a two-stroke lead into today's final pairing with John Kingora and Kevin Reiber, which goes off at 1:50 p.m. Kingora, a Montgomery County resident, shot an early-morning 3-under 69 and Reiber, a two-time WACO champion, delivered a 2-under 70. Others in the hunt include David Boggs (71)

koelble@herald-mail.com Kenny Smith has a chance to join the list of players with multiple championships in the WACO Open golf tournament. All he has to do today is fend off a host of challengers in the 21st WACO tourney to add the 2004 crown to the one he captured in 2002. Smith, of Waynesboro, Pa., used a steady driver and fought through a 35-putt performance to post a 3-under-par 69 Saturday, good for a two-stroke lead over Seth Moul, Ken Kasai, David Barr and John Kingora and a three-shot margin over Ken Lampard.

As competitors finished up their round at Beaver Creek Country Club on Saturday, many stopped to see who was leading the 30th annual WACO Open. Many asked the same question - “Who is Gary Carpenter?” Aside from being a nice guy and a pretty good golfer, Carpenter is the leader after carding a 3-under-par 69 for a 1-stroke lead over Rob Cimarolli heading into today's final round. Cimarolli, of Pittsburgh, recorded a late afternoon 70. Three golfers are locked in a third-place tie, including former WACO champion Kenny Smith along with Alex Hoffman and Bernie Deane.

Even though Gary Carpenter won the 30th WACO Open on Sunday at Beaver Creek Country Club on the second playoff hole, it was the first playoff hole that enabled him to be in a position to win. With Kenny Smith staring down at a possible eagle putt on the 505-yard par-5 15th, Carpenter's ball sat in the rough. The first-round leader knew he had to come up with something very good. His chip, however, did not roll out to the cup and he was left with a 10-foot putt for a birdie - knowing he needed to make it to have a chance at halving the hole with Smith.

SHARPSBURG - Kenny Smith's first novel, inspired by his late son Kory, is a love story about a man and his son. "Kory's Lot" also is a supernatural fantasy with witches and a father who, after discovering his ability to heal, considers bringing his son back from the grave. The setup's similarity to Stephen King's "Pet Sematary" is no mistake, but the stories diverge from there, Smith says. "Kory's Lot" is about the father-son relationship and how a parent can feel after losing a child, Smith says.

koelble@herald-mail.com If he comes down off Cloud Nine in time to play in today's Tri-State Junior Golf Championship, Waynesboro's Kevin Reiber is the likely favorite after the 16-year-old captured the 20th WACO Open championship at Beaver Creek Sunday. Tied with golf buddy Kenny Smith, of Waynesboro, entering the final round following 4-under par 68s Saturday, Reiber put up a self-defense screen on the back nine to ward off several comers in the heat of battle. Not until the final putt of the tournament on the par-4, 370-yard 18th hole did Reiber clinch the title, letting out a sigh of relief as the gallery cheered the youngest champion in WACO history.

Kenny Smith was of the mindset that 4-under par could win the 25th WACO Championship this year. Little did he expect he would be at that number following Saturday's first round at Beaver Creek Country Club. The two-time WACO champion fired a 37-31 - 68 to snag a two-stroke lead over Steve Caron and Bernie Deane, setting up what will be the final pairing in today's round. "The opportunity to score was there today," said Smith, who is the defending champion and 2002 titleholder.

The "Mighty Munchkin" has returned to the championship throne of the WACO golf tournament. A winner of the WACO in 2002 and a contender year in, year out, Kenny Smith emerged from a knotted pack of players who looked as if they would send the 24th edition of the tournament to a playoff Sunday. With five players - Smith, Kevin Farrell, Kevin Reiber, Clayton Rotz and Denny Stoner - locked in a scoreboard battle at 2-under par at one point on the back nine, Smith, the 5-foot-7 long-hitting dynamo from Waynesboro, Pa., electrified onlookers with an approach shot to the 18th hole that had the pin all covered.
