2009 Sickle Cell Tournament

Posted: September 9, 2009 in Pro Duffers South

Pro Duffers South has finished this Labor Day Weekend with a great tournament this year. As usual those that attend one of the Walter Evans Memorial Sickle Cell Tournament had a great time. This is a two day tournament that we have somewhere in the city, usually in Southaven, MS at North Creek Golf Course, one of those courses I mentioned in my Six Memphis Golf Courses Will Be Open 4 Days A Week post. North Creek is a great course and one I really enjoy every time I play there. I didn’t get a chance to play there Saturday, but I did get the cards from Saturday.

Here’s what happened Saturday, Harold McRae knocked the cup out of #16 with a hole-in-one, PAY THE MAN! That was the buzz Sunday during line up. Andre Southall almost did the same with closest-to-the-pin, while Michael Terrell had the Longest Drive on #3. Holloway Adair Eagled #15. I don’t think anyone fell in water, got bitten by a snake, or stuck in the swamp, you have to watch your move at North Creek. They ate lunch, talked crap and got monies from the skins.

Sunday the players came back to play. This time it was to TRY to better their score from Saturday, possibly to win 1st, 2nd, 3rd or the Championship, no money today. I know, I played Sunday. No one knocked the cup out Sunday, but there were some Eagles, Dalton Nickleberry on #8, and Felish Lee on #18. Dolton Nickleberry was the winner on closest-to-the-pin, Rodney Smith delivered the Longest drive. Again no one fell in any water, got bitten by a snake, or stuck in the swamp. We ate and waited for the scores to come in. Bet were discussed, players counted scores, and every once in a while you see someone looking at the score sheets placed on the window, trying to see what place they came in. For the record I didn’t get that ‘405’ LaSalle this time, more like ‘390’. As players waited they munched on a turkey or ham sub sandwich, bag of chips and a drink. I don’t know what they ate Saturday, I wasn’t there.

Carl then took the floor passing out money won from Saturday. Carl then start calling the winners for closest-to-the-pin and longest drives, then the winners were announced:

Senior Flight 3rd Place LaSalle Dudley
Senoir Flight 2nd Place William Terrell
