Lake Tansi FUNd Tournament raises $17,500

CROSSVILLE — The fifth Lake Tansi FUNd Tournament, continued its’ successful tradition on Oct. 6-7, with the help and support of generous local businesses, individuals, players, volunteers and the Lake Tansi golf staff headed by Matt Phipps (Tansi Pro) and Todd Mathews (Tansi Golf Course Superintendent). It was a weekend of great golf and fun on Tansi’s beautiful course netting over $17,500 for the benefit of Tansi’s course and community. 

The FUNd Committee (Sheridan Miszklevitz, Chuck and Barb Sullins, Joyce Ferry, Matt Phipps, Frank and Carole Thierry) extends thanks and appreciation to all who participated in this event with time, talent and treasure.

Mitch’s Restaurant & Lounge and the 19th Hole prepared the cuisine for the weekend, warming players and volunteers alike on those cool autumn days. Bake-Off contestants created award winning desserts to complete Saturday evening’s meal. Winners were Gary Rabuck, first; Pat Sohmer, second; and Pam Barrett, third. 

A hole-in-one always added excitement to the tournament. Doug Hansen aced #12, winning a hot tub and a set of Cleveland irons donated by Campbells Pool & Spa.

Dale Wheeler, Tracy Graham, Brad Eldridge and Brett Elmore won the first flight by five shots over Conley Dykes, Pat Kirby, Bruce Watson and Larry Heslep, and Keith Hinch, Bryan Daley, Dennis Plumlee and Pancho Fuentes. Dykes' team took second place in a chip-off on the practice green behind the ninth green.

Wheeler's team tied with Farrell Odom, Janet Brooker, Dan Kington and Sharon Kington with a 13-under-par 59 after Saturday's round, and fired a 57 on Sunday to win the championship. Odom's team shot a 65 to fall into a fifth-place tie.

Dykes' team shot consecutive rounds of 61, while Hinch's team shot 62-60 for their 122.

Three teams posted eight-under par 64s on Saturday, but Paul Carothers, Kermit Hurley, Tom Beamish and Jim Jacobs fired a 63 in the second round to tie Tammy Kosor, Todd Mono, Chris Kosor and Logan Cate at 127. Carothers' team took the flight in a chipoff, as well.

Saturday's other co-leaders, at 64, Rip Purser, Earl McRill, Perry Turner and Dennis Sassenger posted a 67 on Sunday to finish at 131, good for seventh place.
