It was a spectacular day for golf in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Men’s Golf Association couldn’t have had better weather or a finer course for the second big tournament of year, the 2012 Holiday Classic. When the scores had been tallied the team of Bernie Katchen and John Goesling edged out Howard Walger and Rick Schok. Tom Hansen and Bryan Noonan came in third narrowly missing the title. Scott Thompson and Jim Gabriel claimed fourth followed by the team of Brian Williams and Mike Steele. Dennis Kildare and Jay Yourk took the final spot in the money just edging out Steve King and Bill Petsas and the other thirty-five teams between them and the trophy.
The entire photo gallery from the tournament and the antics following can be found by looking at the right-hand column of this page and clicking on “Tournament Pictures”. Our spy-cam was hard at work in the Member’s Grill following the golfing action. Those requesting the original copies of their photos may pay in cash, credit card or monthly installments. It sounds suspiciously like blackmail, but it’s simply a concept called “dark marketing”.
Some of the awards not awarded include, (1) “Tallest Team” of Steve King and Bill Petsas, (2) “Iconoclast of Fashion”, Mike Steele, (3) “Patriotism Award”, Chris “What a country” Balakas, (4) “Coldest Beer”, Carie, (5) “Best Moustache”, Laurence Rosen, (6) “Best Winner’s Smile”, John Goesling, (7) and “Most Deserving Non-Winners”, Jim Woods and Howard Jones.
It’s already time to sign up for the next big tournament, The Winter Classic on January 12, 2013. See you there.
