People who write about golf can't take a week off in the summertime without missing a few timely bits of information.
So here's a review of what has happened in Philadelphia area golf over the past 10 days or so:
--Chip Lutz of Reading captured the British Senior Amateur Championship at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland, a tournament in which he finished second last year. Lutz, 56, who plays out of LedgeRock Golf Club near Reading, closed the 54-hole event with a pair of 1-under-par 71 scores and finished at 2-under 214, good for a 1-stroke victory. Chris Lange of Overbrook, who like Lutz is a multiple Golf Association of Philadelphia champion, tied for 24th in the event.
--It has been a busy summer for Aurora Kan of Boothwyn, who finished her career at Chichester High School as winner of the 2011 National High School Coaches Association Senior Athlete of the Year award in girls' golf. Kan compiled a 3-1 record in match play to help the East team defeat the West, 32-18, in the AJGA Wyndham Cup at Wilmington, N.C. Last week she finished in a tie for 11th at the Junior PGA Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind. She will attend Purdue University in the fall.
