Andrew Erases the field to earn 1st career MGA Win!

The 4th annual Knoxville FORE! Championship was held at Egwani Farms on August 11th! We had roughly 25 golfers shooting for the last major of the year! The medios had a shotgun start, but it really didn’t matter……it was a long day out there, don’t know who to blame, but a lot of fingers were pointing to Jason Bowers as he works the course and made sure the pin placements were toughest positions, so that Rory himself would be pulling his hair out!

Lets just get to hole #18! A Par 5 420 yards, but only problem to start of is that you have to lay up because of water, after that it is fine until you get to the green where if you don’t put it on the second shelf, you are rolling back all the way back down! This hole consisted of NO meagles, 1 Par, 4 Bogeys, 5 Double Bogeys, 7 Triple Bogeys and 8 that we stopped counting!!

That pretty much summed up the day for just about everyone!

We had Dixon Golf come out for everyone to do the Dixon Challenge, with the proceeds doing to JDRF. On the Par 5 hole everyone tried to get a golf ball in the hula hoops that were laid out in the fairway, (if anyone got one in they would win a free driver) we didn’t have any winners on that hole. On the Par 3 challenge we had 8 golfers that landed their ball on the green that earned them a sleeve of Dixon Golf balls. For everyone that participated, they received a raffle ticket and were entered in a drawing for a free watch or driver and as well as a sponsorship from Dixon.

At the award ceremony, we had a little mix up on who one, no didn’t come down to a playoff, just a little mistake with a MARKER! It was whited out and the Champ for the first time in his MGA career……..Andrew Millett!
