The 2020 Porky’s Open golf tournament presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, has been postponed to August 25 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department largest fundraiser of the year will still take place at the Council Fire Golf Club.
The tournament was originally scheduled for April 28, but was pushed back by the organizing committee. The schedule of events remains the same, with registration beginning at 10:30 a.m.
(E.D.T.) and the shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.
UTC Athletics would like to thank the staff at Council Fire for their flexibility and support.
“The Porky’s Open annually is a major fundraising event for Chattanooga Athletics and brings many of our loyal donors and fans together for one special event,” stated Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Mark Wharton. “With all of the directives responding to COVID-19, including the avoidance of large gatherings, we decided to reschedule for August 25. This allows all of our student-athletes and coaches to be preset during the tournament.”
Hosted by the Mocs Club, the Porky’s Open golf tournament presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee is a premier golf event in Chattanooga and has raised well over $1 million for student-athlete scholarships at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. This year, $10,000 of the proceeds will go towards the Frank Kinser Porky’s Open Endowed Scholarship.
