Albany- Doublegate pro Ed Everett is becoming the Tiger Woods when it comes to winning senior professional tournaments in the state of Georgia.
Earlier this week, Ed Everett won his seventh Ping Georgia Senior PGA championship title by five shots with a winning 36 hole score of nine under par.
That title comes after Everett won his fourth Georgia Senior Open title back in the spring.
It is the third time in the last six years that Everett has won these two "major" titles in Georgia Senior PGAgolf in the same year.
In all, Everett has won 16 major titles in just under a decade on the state's senior professional circuit.
And the bad news for his opponents is that Everett's winning scores keep getting lower as his the number of birthday candles on his cake increases each year.
Everett said "Lets me keep making the shots that I can keep imagining. As long as my imagination is working and the shots go where my imagination takes me that's fun. It's just when you imagine a good shot and you can't hit a good shot. That is when you know your golf game is leaving you."
Next month, Ed Everett will team with four amateurs from South Georgia in the Buick national scramble golf championship in Orlando Florida next month.
