Michael Jordan is still playing basketball and won’t make it, but a bevy of other famous actors and athletes will be in town for the annual Crosby golf tournament. Bermuda Run Country Club again will host the event. This marks the Crosby’s 50th anniversary and the sixth year here. Former President Gerald Ford will be among the stars playing at the Crosby for the first time.

A hole-in-one. It’s a moment most golfers can only dream about. But for West Forsyth sophomore Jason Liner, connecting on the rarest of all golf shots has become a ho-hum affair. After all, over the past year Liner has stormed to links to record an unbelievable five aces. That’s right — five. Just days after his first ace on a regulation course, Liner returned to the Tanglewood Park Par Three course with West coaches Jeff Thompson and Dennis Ring. On the eighth hole, Liner smacked a shot that landed within five feet of the hole and rolled directly in for ace No. 5.
