12th Annual Golf Tournament Recap

12th Annual Golf Tournament Recap

The AMC Museum Foundation 12th Annual Golf Tournament was held on Friday, June 3, 2016. It was a huge success as our golfers turned out for an afternoon of golf and fun.  As our foundation’s largest fund-raising event, all the proceeds go to help us fulfill the mission of the AMC Museum as an aviation and aerospace, education, scientific, cultural, historical, and inspirational facility for the general public and the U.S. Air Force community. Our sincere thanks to ALL those who supported the AMC Museum Foundation by either playing, being a Hole Sponsor, or donating door prizes and Silent Auction items. Planning is already underway for next year’s tournament.

The tournament results follow:

Winning Low Net Team (56): Tony Saligo, Don Bates, Joe Birch, and Scott Wilson
Runner-up in the Low Net (57): Bill Denbrock, John Miller, Larry Garey, and Sonny DiFrancesco
3rd Low Net: Chuck Connor, Ted Broward, Richard Wikso, and Bob Wikso
Low Gross Winners (incredible score of 58!): Jim Kimbleton, Mike Wright, Chuck Miller, and Phil White

A highlight of the day was on the 16th Hole where Col (Ret) George Chabbott again sponsored a $500 prize to the player getting their third shot, had to be made from OFF the green, closest to the par-5 hole. Oh, it was only for those players with a handicap of 15 or higher giving the “average” golfer a chance to win the big prize. Chuck Miller took home the prize as he nestled his 3rd shot up to 2’7” to edge out Joe Pinkerton who had hit his shot to 3’7”. The Putting Contest was very interesting as two players, Harry Van Sant and Paul Roth, “aced” the long, curling putt to be co-winners. Our sincere thanks to all the golfers who participated!
