Results from Annual Marian Medical Center Golf Tournament

Author: Elliott Stern, Santa Maria Times

Doc Harrison got his wish.

After losing last year’s Simas/Fly Memorial Golf Tournament in a card-off, Dr. Alex Harrison said he’d rather lose in a playoff than win a card off.

While I am usually reluctant to delve into my medical history, I mention this because Dr. Harrison says I am responsible for both his selection to the tournament committee and the rule change. A fact to which both Grogan and Marian Medical Center President Chuck Cova both attest.
