UPDATE:   Gentleman: 

For those of you who've not yet heard or did not receive the group text yesterday, this is a reminder that due to the weather situation this weekend, our Club Championship has been postponed until next weekend at same time and same location.  

If for any reason you are now not able to participate due to the move, please-please let Wendell or me know ASAP so that we can make the group edits.  




Club Championship for 2020

October 10th & 11th

Forest Hill Golf Club, Drummonds, TN

This has been an unusual yet amazing year for everyone affected and/or impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic.   In addition to the changes we all faced dealing with the pandemic, we were subjected to changes in the Golfing Handicap System, that should have impacted every golfer who was able to get out and play during these strange times and days over the past 6 months.


We need for all those participating in the Club Championship this year, make that desire known by contacting Wendell Berry via email, text or call,  Abdullah Hasan via email text or call or Carl Herring via email, text or call.


In addition, we need everyone to start putting scores into GHIN, if you have not already done so this year.  We need for everyone to comply so that we can have an accurate handicap on all participants.  This will help get everyone flighted properly for the competition.



To my Brothers in Golf of Pro-Duffers South:

Thank you for the encouragement, friendship, and unqualified support you have displayed during my tenure as National President of Pro-Duffers USA. . It was an honor, not only serving as National President, but even more so as a representative of the Memphis Chapter.  As I join the ranks of Leon Griffin and Larry Brown, I hope that I have made our Chapter proud 

Yours in Golf,
Kelvin

Congratulations

Abdullah Hasan for his performance in this past weekend's Club Championship at Memphis National.  After battling through some health issues for weeks, the man "is back". Going up against some tough competition, this guy posted the lowest rounds to par over two days of the entire tournament, even better than the regular championship from last weekend. 

Abdullah Hasan        166        -7        66    71    137
Tommy Hatmaker     166        +5       81    68    149 
Philip Bryce              181        +6       74    76    150
Rick Emery               169        +6       75    75    150
Eric Heimke              168        +7       77    74    151

Gentleman:

I hope each of you are doing well and staying safe from both pandemics taking place across the country right now.  I did however want to take a moment to share with you a local campaign we did here in Memphis, following the lead of our Brothers in D.C., to support our local Food Bank. Though locally we support our Food Bank annually, this effort was far and beyond our regular fall campaign.  With an initial goal of providing 5,000 - 6,000 meals, our guys stepped it up and we provided funds for over 10,000 meals. The presentation and check took place earlier this week with local TV coverage. 


Thanks D.C. for the challenge, there is much good we can do in all of our communities.
