McCallie's 6th annual Duck Day Golf Tournament

McCallie hosted the sixth annual Duck Day Golf Tournament May 19 at Black Creek Golf Club and raised nearly $26,000 for the Duck Day Scholarship Fund, which benefits a Chattanooga student. 

Twenty-seven teams and a total of 108 golfers enjoyed pleasant weather and perfect course conditions at one of the area’s top courses, along with a pre-tournament lunch by Einstein Brothers Bagels, a silent auction and an awards dinner provided by The Chattanoogan Hotel. 

The Russ Blakely and Associates Team consisting of Tony Brown ’80, Michelle Harris, Jessica Hibbs and Pat Patterson claimed first-place honors. Second place went to the Waters-Holland Team of Andrew Forrester ’01, Mark Harrell, Derek Steele and Brandon Waters ’00. The tournament was scored on a modified scramble scoring system. 

Matt Mathis won the longest drive contest, Ricky Taliaferro ’84 received the prize for closest to the pin, and Tom Moore was the winner of the putting contest.
