Golf Tournament

Great Day on the Links
for 16th Annual Golf Tournament

It was a great day for golf Monday, June 19, 2019, as Partners in Sports hosted its 16th annual scholarship golf tournament. Gettysvue Polo, Golf, & Country Club once again was host as 76 golfers hit the links to show their support for Partners. The event grossed nearly $25,000 including sponsorships, gifts-in-kind, and silent auction proceeds.

There was a great turnout of program alumni as well. Participating this year: Brad Briggs (2014), Drew Clemmons (2003); Chad Culver (1999), David Elliott (1992), Jennifer Hall (2000; 2002), Matt Hollifield (2013), Todd Homer (1997), Patrick Lawson (2010), Todd McMinn (1997; 1999), and Allan Sitzler (2000).  Partners in Sports founder Dr. Buck Jones was also in the field.

Great job by the Championship Committee on planning and executing the event. Sarah Schwartz did a stellar job as tournament director. Emilee Howard and Grace Walker managed the silent auction. Andrew Porth, Cade Ramsey, and Henry Powell oversaw course operations. Thanks to the Visit Knoxville Sports Commission for coming on board as the title sponsor this year. Also, thanks to Tennessee Athletics, Steve Sams, Tailgate Tennessee, Chick-fil-A, Moe’s, and Allegiant Athletic Agency for their support of the tournament.
