The team of Pat Edwards, Robert Darby, Clifford Johnson and Ken Johnson fired a 15-under-par 56 to win the 15th Tiger Tee-Off golf tournament June 9 at Cherokee Rose Country Club.
The scramble tournament helps to raise funds to support non-revenue producing sports such as golf and tennis.
“I was really happy to see our winning team for this tournament. The team of Pat Edwards, Robert Darby, Clifford Johnson and Ken Johnson have always been very supportive of the Bradwell Institute athletic programs,” Bradwell golf coach Ken Griffin said.
The second-place team was Steve Wiggins, James Jones, Jeff Stewart and Bucky Keel with a 57.
Brandon Thompson, Shawn Bones and Mike Churchill finished in third place with a score of 59.
Prizes also were given to players for longest drive and closest to the pin. Ladora Lewis took first place in the women’s competition for closest to the pin, while Steve Wiggins won the men’s longest drive and Mike Churchill claimed first in the men’s closest to the pin.
Churchill won a round with a cart for a foursome by the Jekyll Island Golf Authority. Edwards won a round for two at the Savannah Harbor Course at the Westin Resort.
“I really want to thank Fred Mingledorff Jr. from Hinesville Ford for his continued support of this tournament. He donated a Ford Focus for the hole in one contest on the par-3 No. 3, but unfortunately no one was able to make hole-in-one to win the prize,” Griffin said.
Despite a smaller playing field than usual with nine teams participating, Griffin said that the players enjoyed cooler weather than normal for a June golf tournament.
“This year’s tournament was a success for the athletic department. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the hole supporters for the tournament. This tournament is an opportunity for the community to support our school.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with all of the alumni, community supporters and with the Cherokee Rose Country Club,” Griffin said.
