Thick-n-Thin wins Golf Capital Classic

CROSSVILLE — Team Thick-n-Thin, with Jeff Dyer and Jason Sitton, walked away with a repeat win in the second annual Crossville Heating and Cooling Golf Capital Classic tournament benefitting Susan G. Komen of the Upper Cumberland. Dyer and Sitton won the two-person scramble held Aug. 17 at Lake Tansi Golf Course with a score of an 11-under-par 61.

David McKinney and Adam Forgey were right on their heels, with a score of nine-under-par 63, taking second place in the championship flight, and Scott Myers and Chad Pickle taking third with a six-under-par 66.

A scorecard playoff was necessary for all winners of the second flight, with each shooting a round of three-under-par 69. In the end, Floyd Ferguson and Mike Ferguson took first, followed by David Akin and Jerry Hayes in second and Matt and Ferlin Findley in third.

Herb Keylon and Jimmy Bledsoe took first in the third flight with a four-over-par 76. Daniel England and David England tied Team Pink, but were left with second in a scorecard playoff. Ted McWillians and Sam Tayes rounded out the flight winners with a seven-over-par 79.

George White scored a new golf club of his choice in the putting contest, while McKinney took closest to the pin honors and Forgey hit the long drive.

The committee thanks all the players that enjoyed a day of golf and fun, while supporting the mission of the Upper Cumberland affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, to fight breast cancer.

The tournament would not be possible without the support of its sponsors, Crossville Heating and Cooling, Rocky Top 10 Cinema, Dr. Calley Jo Elsea of Cloudland Dental, Cumberland Medical Center, Honey's Market, 19th Hole at Lake Tansi, Stonehaus Winery, AC Electric, Crossville Ceramics and Perfect Party Rentals.

The Komen Upper Cumberland affiliate serves thousands of women and men in 14 counties as the primary and local funding source for programs that provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to medically under-served Upper Cumberland residents, and provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment. The affiliate utilizes 75 cents of every dollar raised to fund vital local breast health services, and the remaining 25 cents of every dollar to national research to find the cures. Since 2006, Komen Upper Cumberland has invested more than $530,000 into its annual community grants program.
