Organization raises $8,500 for FDA AthleticsPublished 5:54pm Tuesday, May 13, 2014
More than 50 golfers teed it up Saturday, following a brief rain delay, to help raise funds for the Fort Dale Academy Athletic Club.
The four-person scramble, held Saturday at Cambrian Ridge, might’ve had a few less participants than last year, but was no less of a success, according to tournament organizers.
“It went really well,” said Fort Dale Athletic Club member Marty Whigham, who also served as one of the tournament’s organizers.
“We had a little rain delay for a few minutes, and then the rest of the day it cleared up and never did rain on us. We had about 52 golfers, and other than that, everything went well.”
The team of Josh Beverly, Marshall Watts, Damon Daniels and Chris Lowery, sponsored by Dunklin and Daniels Funeral Home, claimed the top spot in the four-person scramble with a net score of 51.3.
Bob Hood, Josh Peavy, Brandon Hood and Steve Fisher took second place with a net score of 53.2. The team was sponsored by Priester’s Pecans.
Ryan Williams, Don Smith, Davis Watts and Reggie Mantooth narrowly missed second place with a third place finish of 53.6. The third-place team was sponsored by Quality Co-Op.
“It seemed like everyone had a good time,” Whigham said.
“It was a fun day, and we’re looking forward to next year’s tournament.”
