Billy Casper Golf's World's Largest Golf Outing has come and gone. Each year this outing brings with it some great golf and some great fun for a great cause. This year was no different.
In Wilmington, the outing was hosted at Rock Manor Golf Course. The event was kicked off with the first annual Longest Drive competition sponsored by Callaway Golf on Friday evening. About 30 participants gathered on the 10th hole at The Rock ready to give it everything they had.
Here are the unofficial results:
Under 40 - B. Cornforth 312 yards
41-60 - M. Kinney 393 yards
60 and up - R. Irwin - 251 yards
Womens - C. Geise - Pretty Far
Notables - J. Cole - DNQ : T. Shields - 316
Each winner recieved a 2015 Super Twilight Membership and an Odyssey Versa 7 Putter courtesy of Callaway Golf.
The Main Event took place on Monday August 3. After an amazing rendition of our National Anthem and a ceremonial first tee shot by LTC D. Lappane, over 100 players teed off in a double-shotgun event. Some amazing scores were posted, but in the end it was Team Big Dawgs who posted the lowest score with a 16-under 55. As far as winners are concerned, the trophy goes to all who participated and donated to this awesome event. Over $850,000 has been raised thus far. A special thanks to Team Down Low and Team Big Dawgs (our top two fundraising teams), Callaway Golf, and the Men and Women who serve and have served our country each day to allow us to host great events like this one.
