Golfweek Super Legends National Championship: Jim DuBois shatters age

Golfweek Super Legends National Championship: Jim DuBois shatters age

In senior golf, sometimes the most mind-blowing numbers are not the ones logged in the boxes of a scorecard. Case in point: Jim DuBois.

Score was only half the story for DuBois in the second round of the Golfweek Super Senior, Legends and Super Legends National Championship. At 82 years old, DuBois, a Coral Springs, Florida, resident, is competing in the Super Legends division. In Wednesday’s second round, DuBois climbed into third place when he logged a score 12 shots better than his age. His 2-under 70 at the Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta included six birdies and catapulted him up the leaderboard after an opening 79.

DuBois, at 5 over the for the tournament, trails Don Kuehn and James Saivar, who are tied for the lead in the division for players age 75 and over. Both men are 4 over, with Kuehn having also made up considerable ground on Wednesday with a second-round 71.

The round of the day at the Golf Club of Georgia belonged to Chris Hall in the Super Senior division. Hall’s 3-under 69 included nine consecutive pars on the front nine, an eagle on the par-4 10th, birdies at Nos. 13 and 16 and a sole bogey on the par-5 18th. It left him at 1 over for the tournament and one off the lead.

Emile Vaughan continues to set the pace in the Super Senior division at even par. He made up considerable ground with 33 on the back nine in the first round but struggled on that side on Wednesday. After a birdie at No. 10, he played the next eight holes in 3 over on his way to a second-round 73.

Stevie Cannady is also at 1 over in that division and tied for second with Hall. Todd Brown is 2 over in fourth while Mark Burden, with back-to-back rounds of 74, rounds out the top 5.

Marcus Beck, Golfweek’s Super Senior Player of the Year in 2023, lurks at 8 over.

In the Legends division, Charley Yandell broke free of a three-man tie for the lead after the first round. His second-round 74 left him one shot ahead of Phil Pavoni entering the final round.
