Golfing for a Good Cause

The tournament took place on the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Regional Golf Course where the morning began with a moment of silence for Jerry Cornelsen who had been a strong supporter of OPSU and the game of golf for many years. Jerry recently passed away and will be missed by all who knew him.

Teams were drawn at random and the field was competitive from start to finish; ending with a tie for first and second place. After three playoff holes the winning team was decided. First place went to Jamie Kauffman, Chad Wilson, Sergio Alvidrez, Tate Cobb, and Ty Palmer who each received $30 cash and merchandise from PTCI. The second place team included Bob Burgess, Tucker Cobb, Jake Strain, Teryl Gloden, and Conner Kauffman; their prize was $20 each and merchandise from PTCI. Wayne Manning, Justine Gaskamp, Trey Fankhouser, Duke Arbuthnot, and Rex Strain made up the third place team who received fifteen dollars each along with goodie bags from PTCI.

Prizes were also given for closest to the pin on holes number two and seven. Mike Godfrey won a floor jack from O'Rielly Auto Parts and Conner Kauffman received a certificate for an oil change from Hinchey Ford. All participants received a door prize donated by local businesses.

The Goodwell EMS Ambulance Fund raised over $2500 from the tournament, and donations are still being received. All proceeds will go towards materials and supplies used by the EMS and ambulance crew.

Organizers of the tournament would like to thank all of the people who helped promote and run the event as well as OPSU for use of the golf course. They would also like to thank all of the businesses who donated money and prizes making this tournament a great success.
