The Second Annual FTA Emerging Leaders Golf Outing was a huge success. A total of 115 golfers trekked to Phoenix, AZ a day before the official start of Forum 2017 to play 18 holes at the Raven Golf Club. The temperature hovered around 80 degrees and there was barely a cloud to be seen.
“I love the Emerging Leaders Golf Outing and I loved it when it was the J.P. Buckley Annual Golf Tournament. I don’t think I have missed one since they started years ago,” said Paul Teachout, Forum 2017 chair. “It is a great way to kick off Forum and network in a social activity with converters and suppliers. I can laugh, yell and enjoy a day in the sun with a bunch of other people who are as bad at golf as I am.”
At a reception following the Emerging Leaders Golf Outing, golfers ate barbecue and enjoyed an open bar. A number of awards were given to players who hit their balls the farthest, the most accurately and the overall best:
Closest to Pin
The three trophy-winning foursomes were:
Thomas Carrano, JD Dickey, Rod Osborn, Stephen Turner
Lenny Bastidas, Michael Clark, Phil Ford, Michael Hailfinger
Louise Paquette, Alain Paquette, Kitty Fallows, Peter Bernard
