Travis Curtis of Montville received a bronze medal in golf at the Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle, Wash. in July and recently was honored for his topnotch performance by his home course — the Northport Golf Club.

Competing in the Eagles Talon Level 5 High Performance Division Monday through Thursday, July 2-5 at the Willows Run Golf Club in Redmond, Wash., Curtis finished third with a combined score of 270 — 93 for Round 1 and 185 for Round 2 — for 36 holes. He was only eight shots off the lead of Garrett Stortz of Alaska, who fired a 262.

This year marked the third time Curtis has participated in the Olympic event. He played in the event in New Jersey in 2014 and in Nebraska in 2010. He also was a bronze medalist winner in 2014.

The 29-year-old Curtis, who has played golf since he was 12 years old, had his picture added to the “Wall of Honor” at the Northport Golf Club with he and members of his family on hand for the unveiling.

Curtis, a 2008 graduate of Bangor High School, is the son of Bill and Carol Curtis of Montville.
