ERIC BAKER 2-MAN CHALLENGE RAISES OVER $2300 FOR THE ERIC BAKER MEMORIAL FUND IN SUPPORT OF JUNIOR GOLF AND STAND UP 2 CANCER
The seventh annual Eric Baker Memorial 2-Man Challenge was held at Mission Inn September 22-23. Twenty one teams competed in the 2 day event that featured a Better Ball format on day 1 followed by a Scramble on day 2..
It was all in support of the Eric Baker Memorial Fund. The Golfweek Amateur Tour / Orlando raises money all season by holding 50 / 50 drawings and raffles at each tournament, followed by the Eric Baker Memorial Tournament at the end of each season. The tournament this year raised $2,355. Combined with the $3,123 raised during the 14 regular season tournaments, the Eric Baker Memorial Fund distributed over $5,400.
The Fund made donations this year to the following::
- Lake County Junior Golf -- $500
- The United States Blilnd Golf Association -- $500
- St. Jude's Childrens Hospital -- $500
- Stand Up 2 Cancer -- $3,978
The players in the 2-Man Challenge were put into one of four flights based on the lowest AGT handicap of the team members. It was a fun 2 days and along with the money raised, we did hand out some prizes and trophies. Here are the four flight winning teams.
Chad Frank & Bill Shufelt (71-62-133) Won Flight I
Kyle Clapper & Chad Miller (72-67-139) Won Flight II
Jerry Fleming & Gator Gatrell (79-65-144) Won Flight III
Brian Mack & Chuck Jaqueth (89-76-165) Won Flight IV
But as we said at the beginning, the true winner was charity. Thank you to everyone who supported our effort all season long!
