The Society of Seniors (SOS) has announced that Rusty Strawn, Robin Rubrecht, Jim Grubbs and Jim DuBois are the SOS Players of the Year 2021.

The SOS Players of the Year are determined by the points accumulated during the eight Society of Seniors Championships. These are the Spring Classic, Senior Masters, John Kline Championship, Jack Hesler Tournament, National Super Senior Championship, Dale Morey Championship, Founders Cup and Ralph Bogart Tournament.

Strawn got away with the Senior POY points race, winning three of the six events he competed in (the Dale Morey, Spring Classic and Ralph Bogart) and never finishing in the top 6. Allen Peake finished second in the standings. points, followed by Greg Sanders, Stephen Maddalena and Randy Haag.

The Super Senior race was a tighter affair, with Rubrecht edging Jeff Burda with a victory at the SOS Senior Masters and two more top-3s. Marc Fried, Evan Long and Emile Vaughan complete the top 5.

The closest points race was that of the Legends division, which was decided by just 10 points (400-390). In the end, it was the Senior Masters victory that gave Grubbs the edge over Peter Van Ingen, with George Washburn, Pete Allen and Don Donatoni next on the list.

DuBois won two SOS events in 2021 – the Ralph Bogart and the Jack Hesler – to fend off another two-time winner Ron Johnson for the Grand Master POY title. Walt Martin, Joel Hirsch and Steve Wilson were third to fifth.

The SOS 2022 program kicks off with the Spring Classic at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Fla., Which runs February 21-23.
