Williams wins 85th Washita

CHICKASHA —

For the second year in a row, Taylor Williams walked away with the championship title from the Washita Valley Tournament held at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course over the weekend.

Williams came out on top with a total of 80 golfers taking part in the 85th edition of the annual tournament, which claims the title of the oldest golf tournament of its kind in the state. It is held every year on or around Independence Day.

In addition to Williams, five other golfers took the top spot in their respective flights. Chad Randle was the A-flight winner, Shelby Crawford -- the youngest in a long line of Crawford golfers to take part in the tournament -- won the B-Flight, Daniel Griffin won C-Flight, Bill Daughtery was the D-Flight winner, and Dalton Wenzel was the winner of E-Flight.

Golfers come from across the southern U.S. to take part in the Washita Valley Tournament, said Fran Morris, who co-owns Cottonwood Creek with her husband, Jerry.
