Three weeks ago Florida pro Michael Kartrude collected a $7,000 check for winning the Greater Bangor Open Golf Tournament. Now he's trying to collect another big check in Augusta.

The Charlie's Maine Open is underway at Augusta Country Club. This is the seventh year Augusta CC has hosted the tourney but it is the 100th anniversary year of the event.

The GBO is 52-years-old and so how many times has the same golfer won both events?

Twice. Paul Barkhouse in 1972 (both events played at Bangor Municipal GC) and Jeff Lewis in 1985 (Bangor Muni & Springbrook GC).
