We sent two teams to the 30th Annual ABC Golf Tournament this year in an effort to win but more important, to support a very worthy charity. The event was held at Soldier Hollow Golf Course in beautiful Midway, Utah and there were enough teams to fill both the Gold and the Silver courses. The proceeds from the tournament are donated to a local children’s charity and help to fund back to school clothing and supplies for the kids.
Our first team was James Arciaga, Mark Todd, Scott Lindsay and our ace player, Cody Sorensen. We had a great time but in the end, our 5 under par score was not enough to put our names on the trophy. Our second team was Chase Sorensen, Ben Vigil, Neil Atkinson, and Dave Giles. They also posted a respectable score of 5 under par but again, no trophies.
We also sponsored hole #16 on the Gold course and held a closest-to-the-hole contest. Carl Sundstrom, Jamie Morris and Carlos Salcedo were on site to offer the players swing tips, yardage to the hole, a friendly smile and most important a watchful eye to make sure the contest was honest. Ron Hadley used his finely honed skills to stop his golf ball within 8 feet of a very tough pin. His efforts were rewarded with an awesome new Garmin G3 Approach golf GPS unit.
At the end of the day, we all had a great time and most important of all, we raised a lot of cash for a truly worthy charity!
Thanks to all who participated!
