Parkview Golf Classic names benefit

Posted: Thursday, July 7, 2011

A foursome captained by Dr. James Stapel posted the low score for the second year in a row in the mixed/women’s division of the 21st annual Parkview Huntington Golf Classic, held June 23 at LaFontaine Golf Club.

A team representing Indiana Wesleyan University posted the low score in the men’s competition in the Florida scramble format. Proceeds from the day benefit patient privacy improvements to Parkview Huntington Hospital’s Surgical Admissions Unit.

“We had to dodge a few raindrops but there was a great turnout of 34 teams,” said Foundation Director Mike Perkins. “The competition was close – in both divisions. Both winners were determined by going to the first backup score, which was the low total on the back nine."

The team of Dr. Stapel, Dr. Janet Prendergast, Gina Freer and Jim Chapman had the low mixed/women’s score at 61, the same total as the team from Huntington University’s Enterprise Resource Center. The Stapel group won by virtue of a two-stroke advantage on the back nine. Kay Schwob captained the Huntington University team, and was joined by Mark Schwob, Lee Schmalzried and Dave Buzzard.

In the men’s competition, the Indiana Wesleyan team and a foursome captained by Dr. Derek Dyer tied for the outing’s low score, with 55s. The back nine scoring provided a one-stroke edge to Indiana Wesleyan. The IWU team was captained by Steve Evans, and included Scott Richards, Tyler Keith and Mark Wickersham. Joining Dyer on his foursome were Chris Hoke, Kyle Stoffel and Jon Oliver.

Brian Bartol, playing with the Huntington Ortho foursome, was the winner of the gentlemen’s long drive contest. Ann Kasper, part of a foursome sponsored by Dr. Charnjit Pabla, had the ladies’ long drive. Ed Beckner had the longest putt on the 18th hole. Closest to the pin with their drives on par-three holes were Keith, on No. 2, and Kristy Boone, a member of Dr. Duane Hougendobler’s foursome, on No. 14.
