Tragic end on I-30 for Cory Waters

October 10, 2013

Cory Waters loved pigeons. As a child in Los Angeles, he learned to train them and sell them as a way to make money.
Waters, 36, was finding life difficult during the last 12 months and decided to try his hand, once again, at raising and training the birds of his happier days.
Waters and his son, Cory Jr., 17, recently found pigeons for sale in Texas and set out to purchase 18. After securing their order, the father and son packed the birds into their vehicle and headed back to Arkansas with hope for a brighter future.

Benton finished fourth in the South.
“This is some tough competition,” Benton Coach David Torres said. “It’s a wide-open, beautiful course. It’s well taken care of and the greens are well-groomed. It’s just the toughness of it; tough pin placement. This week, your putter was everything. Each green had two or three tiers.”
