A sharp–shooting foursome from the Whiskey Creek Golf Club in Frederick, Maryland, shot a sizzling 33 under par to win the three–day 54–hole NKF Golf Classic National Finals at the famed Pebble Beach Resorts last month. The NKF Golf Classic, the nation’s premier amateur golf event for charity, calls attention to the need for kidney disease prevention and organ donation, and raises funds to support NKF’s education, early detection and research programs.
Thirty–seven teams from 16 states, all top finishing teams at local NKF Golf Classic events played throughout 2010, competed in the four–person, scramble format National Finals. Each played a round on the Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay and Del Monte Golf Course. The winning team, composed of Scott Gates, Brad Mitchell, Peter Moran, James Pettit (from left in photo) shot rounds of 61–64–58 for a 183 total and a four shot victory over a team from Barton Hills Country Club in Ann Arbor, MI. A team from Legacy Country Club in Orlando, FL finished in third place at 27–under par.
