2019 Tournament of Champions Results

from Hugh Quinn, 1st VP

We finally had our Tough Day weather yesterday, November 16, for the Tournament of Champions – cold and windy! Just missed it by a week.

Highlights of the day include wins by Jeremy Ray for gross with 71 and Larry Wise for net with 65! Scores will be posted by committee.

The other major highlight was the Hole-In-One by Dave Edenfield on #7! Check out photo. And with 34 players in the final field, it was a costly day for Dave. But at least his Georgia Bulldogs pulled out a win vs. Auburn later in the day!

Thanks to Joe Brooks for coming in to handling scoring duties even though he did not play.

This was our final TGA Tournament for 2019. Thanks to everyone who played in the events and thanks to the many TGA members who helped make the events successful in many different ways. And thanks to the TLGA Ladies who help us get started at all of our events.

It’s been a long time since Easy Day in February and now there is a short break before Easy Day in February, 2020. We’ll have our Annual Meeting and dinner on Tuesday, February 4 in the Clubhouse Ballroom More detail in mid-January.

While we have winter weather for the next few months, don’t let that deter you from teeing it up. Courses are less crowded, conditions are very good and you’ll keep your game in shape for the 2020 season!

2019 Gift Certificate Summary

Jim Williams has been nice enough to track and compile the 2019 list of tournament winners and gift certificate summaries.

There is all kinds of good news. An excerpt from Jim’s analysis:

  • 35 Members earned back their membership fee of $120 or greater
  • 48 Members earned at least $100 for the year
  • 103 Members cashed in at least one event this year, earning at least $20
  • 67 Members qualified for the year-end Tournament of Champions

Counting the payouts to the guests as part of the Member/Guest total and the Hatfield and McCoy payouts (which are not counted as part of the ‘official’ money list noted above) – the TGA paid out over $12,000 in Gift certificates for 2019.

That is a testament to the size of the membership this year but also the participation rate for our events. The more people that play in an event – the more places we can pay out.

With the 2019 season drawing to a close and the 2020 season right around the corner, remember to spread the word about the TGA and help the Association continue to grow.
