‘The Dunk’ hosting golf tourney

HARTFORD — Dunkin Donuts Park saw no baseball in this year of the pandemic. It will, however, see golf.

The Hartford Yard Goats, primary residents of the downtown Hartford stadium, will host “Links at the Yard,” a four-day golfing event Oct. 14-17. The ballpark will be converted into a par-3, target-style course with elevated tees from different spots in stadium.

The event is being staged with Callaway Golf, which first engineered a golf event at a baseball ballpark at San Diego’s PetCo Park.

Golfers can sign up in groups of 2-6. Entry fee is $32 per round. Make reservations at yardgoatsbaseball.com.

Golfers must bring their own clubs and must wear a mask. Social distancing will be observed.

Reiman takes checkers at ‘The Bowl’

SOUTHINGTON — Bill Reiman earned his first Super X-car win of the season at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

The Southington driver took the lead for good with three laps to go in the most recent slate of “Wacky Wednesday” events. Reiman was battling with Don Berge. The two had exchanged the lead eight times before Reiman’s decisive move.

The victory put Reiman in fourth place in the division standings. Of the seven Super X-car races so far this year at the Speedbowl, Reiman has finished in the top 10 every time and in the top five all but once.

Competition continues this Wednesday in the Legends, Super X-car, X-car and the Bandolero divisions. Action starts at 6:30 p.m. and typically ends around 9-9:30.
