As the PGA golfers were practicing on August 12th, golfers at the National Kidney Foundation Invitational Golf Tournament held at Monroe Golf Club were playing for real. The prize? An invitation to compete in the National Invitational Finals at Pebble Beach early next year. The shotgun scramble event consisted of two flights of golf with winners in each flight.
Winners of the morning flight with a score of 58 were Stu Reber, James Johnson, John Gilmore and Ken Buck. In the afternoon the winners, with a score of 61, were Kevin Lynch, Tim Montevechio, Brent Losey and Jim Melvehill.
“This year’s event supports the National Kidney Foundation’s patient and community service programs, advocacy, research, and organ donation programs,” explained tournament co-chair Matt Belanger, an attorney with Faraci and Lange.
Highlights of the event included celebrity appearances by NBA star and ESPN Commentator Sean Elliott, PGA Professional David Leadbetter and PGA Championship Director of Business and Community Affairs, Earnie Ellison, Jr.
