John Mulcahy and his daughter, Mary, have run the table the last three years in the Massachusetts Golf Association’s Father & Daughter Championship.
The Mulcahys, whose family association at Scituate’s Hatherly Country Club dates back to the 1920s, were victorious last year in the senior division (18-and-over), the year before in the junior division and in 2010, when the field consisted of one division.
However, John, a former golf captain at St. Leo University in Florida and a six-time club champion at Hatherly, said he’d be happy if he misses this year’s event, scheduled for Aug. 8 at the Golf Club of Cape Cod in East Falmouth.
With good reason.
His daughter will play in an 18-hole qualifier for the national tournament Tuesday in Fitchburg. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
