Former director of drug task force indicted
Posted: 11:52 PM - The former executive director of a narcotics task force based in Maysville has been indicted on a charge of taking money from the organization.
Our favorite professional golfer (apologies to ex-Wildcat J.B. Holmes, who checks in at No. 2), Josh Teater, is still alive in the PGA Tour FedExCup playoffs, thanks to his finish at The Barclays this past weekend, where he finished tied for 36th.
Teater, in his first full season on the PGA Tour, is playing the best golf of his life. Three weeks ago, at the Turning Stone, the Henry Clay product finished third, pocketing the largest check of his young career: $180,400.
He followed that up with an 18th-place finish at The Wyndham. After that weekend, Teater was ahead of guys like Tiger Woods in the FedExCup point standings and was just one spot behind Woods on the PGA Money List for 2010.
The FedExCup is golf's version of the post season. The top 125 golfers play four tournaments and crown a champion at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
The top 100 golfers in FedExCup points head to next week's stop: The Deutsche Bank Championship, in Boston. Teater will be there.
After playing at Morehead State, Teater bounced around for a couple of years, playing local events and trying his game on some of the mini tours. In 2009, Teater earned his way onto the Nationwide Tour, where he finished seventh on the money list. His strong play last year, including his first win as a pro at the Utah Championship, assured Teater his PGA Tour card for 2010.
So for now, Teater is still looking for his first Tour win. Hopefully that will come soon. But for now, there's more golf to be played, which means a chance to add to his career earnings. With more than $900,000 in winnings this year, Teater soon will become the PGA Tour's next millionaire.
Not bad for a 31 year-old rookie.
And our favorite pro. Congrats, Josh.
Those are the highlights... Stay tuned.
