Swing for Good Health golf tourney raises $23,000 for health career scholarships

The 118 golfers who played in Southeastern Regional Medical Center Foundation’s annual tournament will make it possible for local students to train for careers in health care.  Thirty teams competed in the 22nd annual Swing for Good Health golf tournament held May 3 at Pinecrest Country Club.  The tournament was chaired by David Walker.

The event raised $23,160 for the SRMC Foundation, according to Foundation Director Sissy Grantham.  Proceeds from the tournament will help fund academic scholarships for students who have chosen to study medicine, nursing or allied health and who plan to return to this community to practice.

The first place winners, with a score of 53, were Donnie Beck, David Lowery, Chris Jackson and Larry McNeill. They each received a $150 cash prize.

The second place winners were Mike Brown, Brylan Gann, Ken Vance and Donnie Zamora.  They each received $100.

Earning a score of 60, the team of Dean Carter, Bobby Lewis, Lenney Locklear and Tom Smith won in third place. Each team member received a $50 cash prize.

Joel Strainer claimed the prize for closest to the pin on hole #10; on #12 Thomas Johnson.  Tug Tugwell took honors for the most accurate drive on hole #8; Joe Glezen had the most accurate drive on hole #17.  The awards for the longest drive on hole #1 went to David Lowery and on hold #18 Brylan Gann.

The tournament provided players with two opportunities at hole-in-one prizes sponsored by Debbie’s Destinations and Lumberton Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, although none were claimed.
