A foursome captained by Dr. Derek Dyer posted the low score of the day to capture the men's division of the 22nd annual Parkview Huntington Golf Classic, held June 28 at LaFontaine Golf Club.
"Pabla's Pros," the team of Parkview Huntington Hospital employees sponsored by Dr. Charnjit Pabla, posted the low score in the ladies'/mixed competition in the Florida scramble format.
The event raised more than $17,000 to facilitate the purchase of a BladderScan unit, an ultrasound device that will enhance the comfort of patients of all ages in the hospital's emergency and inpatient departments. Huntington University and Moake Park Group were co-host sponsors for the classic, which attracted 29 foursomes.
Parkview Huntington Foundation organizes the event, and more than 20 hospital employees and community members volunteered to assist throughout the day.
"Through the hottest weather in many years, everyone did their best to keep their cool and have a great time," said Foundation Director Mike Perkins. "The course was in very good condition considering the extreme dry spell we've had, and the competition was keen in both divisions."
The foursome of Dyer, E.J. Carroll, Chris Hoke, and Mike Gasaway carded a low round of 56 to top the 10 teams in the men's division. Pabla's Pros turned in a 59 to capture the ladies'/mixed victory over 18 other teams. The Pros were Ann Kasper, Kathy Cotton, Linda Foland and Carol Scher.
Jason Kennedy, playing with a foursome captained by Terry Stoffel, was the winner of the gentlemen's drive accuracy contest on the fourth hole. The women's winner in that competition was Nancy Host, playing in a foursome with her husband Dan and Carla and Bob MacDonald.
Other winners were:
• Dennis Massengill, Longest Putt on the 15th hole.
• Brad McDonald, Closest to the Pin on the second hole.
• Sandy Uptgraft won the putting contest.
