Mickey and Logan Beechy Newton Falls

NEWTON FALLS - Mickey Beechy knew he was in trouble after he saw the final scorecard.
His son, Logan, then 11 years old, was 16 strokes better than his father during a nine-hole round.
Logan, a Newton Falls High School senior, started playing golf only a year or two earlier.
"I've been playing my entire life and he started beating me with ease when he was 11," Mickey said. "I thought I had a few more years. I thought we would be playing and I would be kind of close together score-wise for year or two, but that wasn't the case.

Mickey, who has owned Duck Creek for 11 years, saw his son play many rounds over the years, but none as important as this weekend. Logan tees off Friday morning in the Division II state tournament at Ohio State University's Scarlet Course in Columbus.
Mickey can see a lot of his father, Myron, in Logan with every swing of a club. Logan has Myron's luck as well. Logan has three holes-in-one during his young career. Click for a great article By John Vargo, Tribune Chonicle.
