Bradwell Institute’s seventh annual Tiger Tee Off on Saturday at Cherokee Rose raised more than $2,600 for non-revenue sports.
Judging by the participation — 14 four-person teams — and the golfers’ enthusiasm, the tournament was a success.
BI golf coach Ken Griffin spent months preparing for the tournament and was pleased with the outcome.
“I’m very pleased with what’s turned out today,” he said. “I was worried about the change and challenges and afraid we would not have many teams participating, but we had good participation. The number of sponsors has increased and the people who play. I am very pleased with the tournament.”
Griffin will use some of the proceeds to buy equipment for the Tiger boys and girls golf teams.
Several alumni, golfers and Bradwell supports came out to support the Tigers and have a little fun on the links.
Taylor Creek Elementary School physical education teacher Bob Brennan, who’s two sons Ryan and Kyle Norris play on the BI golf team, enjoyed playing in the tournament and supporting Bradwell athletics.
“It’s a great time to come out here and support Bradwell because the golf team does not get that much money to support itself,” he said. “We come out here every time to support them.”
