Seniors who wait will be charged a 1%
penalty for every month they delay. How
much that will be is calculated using
the base rate for the year they are
enrolling. For example this year it's
33 dollars. So for our purposes we will
use this number to calculate. For every
month they delay there is a 1% penalty.

If they wait for the next enrollment
period November 15th, they will face a
7% penalty or a charge of $2.31.

If they hold off until the following
year, that's 19% increase or $6.27 more

:00 lead entering the final round, but
three putted for bogey on the 18th,
opening the door for Jim Furyk.

He drained his par on the 72nd

Furyk who lost to Vijay Singh
in a Charlotte playoff last year, made
the most of his opportunity today,
knocking down a par on the first extra
hole for the win.
