Oct 13, 2017 MBUSA 2nd Annual Golf Outing a Success!
Sixteen teams of golfers took to the links on Monday at the 2nd annual MBUSA Golf Outing at the Golf Club at Bradshaw Farms. Teams fielded players with all skill levels and abilities from experts to players who had never picked up a golf club before.
This year featured a special contest we referred to as “Beat the President.” Dietmar greeted each team on a par 3 hole, and if their team had a tee shot closer to the pin than his, each member of the team received a ticket giving them a chance to win a prize! Matt Bowerman’s team was one of the few that beat the president and he won a new golf club that he can use next year to try again.
Congratulations to the winning team; Anthony Marino, Mike Holroyd, Robert Mikita and James Hancock!
Other winners included Alina Tceplukhova for Women’s Longest Drive, Anthony Marino for Men’s Longest Drive, and Josh Saunders for Closest to the Pin.
A charity raffle was held for a set of Tiffany and Co. Commemorative Plates from the 2017 Master’s Tournament. These plates were a gift to MBUSA from the Chairman of Augusta National Golf Course, Billy Payne. Xincan Zhang was the lucky winner! 100% of the proceeds are being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a charity selected by Xincan.
Thank you from the Golf Outing Committee to everyone that participated, as well as Monique Harrison, Nick Emma, and Ashley Walton from our Brand Event Marketing team and Kristin Nutter from our Accessories team. Extra thanks to Stephanie Hirsch who volunteered her valuable time to ensure everything ran smoothly.
Finally, a very special thank you to Dietmar, Adam, Christian, Harald, Drew and Renato for their continued support of this unique employee event.
Stay tuned for details on next year’s outing!
