2004 Golf tournament benefits Southern Wesleyan
We had a great turnout this year. The course looked great, the weather was beautiful and the golfers really seemed to enjoy the day,” said Heidi Cushman, Southern Wesleyan University development associate.
Members of the first place team were Fred Keith, Mike DeShields, Doug Edwards and Doug Tooke, all of Easley. Each player on the first-place team will receive TaylorMade RAC OS series irons with graphite shafts.
The second-place team included P.B. Wood of Central, Glenn Simpson of Pickens, and Pete Wood and Dan Wood, both of Central. They won TaylorMade 500 series drivers with graphite shafts.
Third-place team members were Mike McHenry, Irv Harrington, Chip Thornton and Kevin Sheriff, all representing Sardi’s Den in Clemson. They received Rossa sport putters.
Other prize winners included Chris Holliday of Holliday and Associates in Easley for longest drive, a TaylorMade R-7 driver; Jeremy Holder of Cornell Dubilier in Liberty for closest to the pin, a TaylorMade golf bag. Mike DeShields won the grand prize raffle for a weeklong stay at Myrtle Beach.
This year’s celebrity golfer was Geoff Hart, WYFF News 4 Sports Director. WYFF sports reporter Bob Mihalic also participated in the tournament.
Proceeds from the Paul B. Wood Golf Tournament benefit The Promise Fund – the Annual Fund for SWU.
“The money we raise from the golf tournament directly benefits students at Southern Wesleyan University by providing scholarships and academic and program support,” Cushman said.
The tournament is named for Dr. Paul Wood, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Southern Wesleyan University.
