ANDERSON, Calif. -

Ken Gill capped off a series of celebrations on his 100th birthday on Monday on the golf course in Anderson.

Gill is a regular dew-sweeper at Tucker Oaks Golf Course in Anderson. After he drives to the course, he is in the first group off the tee in the morning and he has been celebrating his birthday for days.

"I don't know if I'm going to be make it or not with all what we had the last three days," Gill said about all of his celebrations. "I had my birthday on the 15th because most of the family had to get back home. They're from 200 miles away."

When asked the secret to living a long life, Gill said it's all about working saying he works in the yard, bowls, golfs.
