On Aug. 25 at Reynolds Golf Course, the brothers of the Psi Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. hosted its second annual scholarship golf tournament. This year’s event had 88 golfers participating. The large turnout was due to a total commitment of chapter brothers dedicated to a worthy cause.

The funds raised from the tournament help provide young men in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system scholarships and carryout other community related activities. In May, the chapter awarded seven young men $1,000 each to assist them in their pursuit of obtaining a college degree. We are looking to increase that number with the success of this year’s tournament.

Golfers from all over the Piedmont triad area took part in our event. There were golfers from Charlotte, Durham, Burlington, Mebane, High Point, Greensboro, and surrounding areas. The format was a two-person captain’s choice. There were awards presented from three flights. This allowed golfers of all skill levels to compete for the $200 first place, $100 2nd place, and $50 third place in each flight. The golfers were allowed to purchase one mulligan and one red tee shot. The competitive juices were really flowing.

Chris Ingram and Floyd Greene took First Place in the championship flight, with Ron Hailey and Jay Smith taking Second Place and Barry Rountree and Clayton Person finishing in Third place.

Micheal and Isaiah Trolinger took First Place in the first flight, with Anthony Billings and Johnny Noblings taking Second and David Lee and Tavis Howell finishing in Third Place. James Davis and Jason Brown took First Place in the second flight, with Kerwin and Bill Graham taking Second and John Troy Witherspoon and Carter Turner finishing in Third Place.

“We also would like to thank the many businesses that supported our endeavor. Golfers had a chance to win a 2018 Cadillac from Flow Cadillac and a Breitling watch from Windsor Jewelers. It was a gorgeous day with fun and fellowship shared by all,” the fraternity chapter said in a press release.
