TapRooT® Summit Golf Results
It was another outstanding TapRooT® Summit Golf Tournament.
Even though the temperature in Las Vegas edged up to 104º, the players kept their cool.
The Brian’s Canadians claimed victory again – by one stroke (61). Although their victory was not without controversy…
At first, the pro calculated a winner other than the Canadians. He reviewed the cards again when I pointed out that I thought there was a lower score. The second time he did the math, the Canadians were declared the winner by 1 stroke.
After the awarding of trophies to the winners, another team claimed the pro had miss-added their scorecard too. They claimed that they had tied the Canadians and that they had beat the Canadians on the tie-breaker hole.
Now for the mystery.
Since it was late and the bus was there, I decided to add up the cards myself (it takes a Nuclear Engineering Masters Degree for this complex math). I put the cards in a box in the storage room back at the hotel so that I could do this when we got back to Knoxville. But when we returned to Knoxville, the box and cards were MISSING!
So the re-count couldn’t be conducted and the pro’s math can’t be challenged.
Surely the only way to settle this controversy is to conduct another tournament at the Summit next year and see if anyone can beat the low scoring Canadian team.
Here’s a link to the video that commemorates the tournament…
FIRST YEAR – CHARITY GOLF
This was the first year that the tournament was a charity event. Players could buy a mulligan and other advantages. All the money was donated to a domestic violence shelter for women and children in Clinton, TN – The Oasis of Love – that is run by Linda Unger’s (VP at System Improvements) mother – Janice Wilson.
Golfer’s donated $1350. System Improvement’s matched that money to make the total sum raised $2,700!
Below is a picture of Janice happily receiving the money from Linda.
