A Message from Dick Horton
“Measuring success” in Tennessee golf reached its zenith in 2012. A look at our 2012 Progress Report “yardage book” reveals lots of par fives reached in two, some eagles and several aces.
The aces have to be Steven Fox capturing the US Amateur at Cherry Hills, Brandt Snedeker winning the FedEx Championship at East Lake, Brooke Pancake clinching the NCAA Women’s Team Championship for the Crimson Tide at the Vanderbilt Legends Club with a clutch 5 foot putt on the 72nd hole, and certainly Tennessee Golf Hall of Famer David Meador winning his third National Blind Golf Championship.
Eagles in the form of Casey Wittenberg winning the money title on the Nationwide Tour, Scott Stallings earning his second PGA Tour title in the True South Classic, and Tennessee Golf Foundation board member Loren Roberts winning on the Champions Tour.
Birdies on the world stage included playing for the United States in the Ryder Cup (Brandt), the Curtis Cup (Brooke) and the World Amateur Team championship (Steven).
Measuring our success against our mission of “promoting golf and its life enhancing values” is summed up by following our four Foundation Regional Directors and how
they are locally impacting golf. Jimmy Darr (Memphis), Cody Weems (Tri-Cities), Dori Paschall (Chattanooga) and Chad Anderson (Knoxville) have the pulse of the game in their regions. If you have golf questions, they have the answers.
Thank you for your interest in TGF and please let us know if you need any additional information about our mission, programs or ways we can use support.
President, Tennessee Golf Foundation
