    It Was the Perfect Day for Golf.
    With weather special ordered by our own Shelley Hansel, Executive Director of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce, Saturday’s golf classic was bound for success.  "Mother nature sure was smiling on us Saturday because we could not have asked for better weather,” said Hansel.  
    The 4-person scramble set up began with a shotgun start promptly at 12:30pm.
    All prizes were classified by 1st, 2nd and 3rd Flight.  Prizes were determined between each Flight for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams based on handicap and/or average score of the players.  Winners of 1st Flight were:  1st place – Bank of Commerce - Richard Clift, Larry Mangan, Buddy Robertson, and Brian Peck with 54.  2nd place – Dietrek Gill, Chad Gill, Martin Park, and Derek Harrison with 54.  3rd place – Adam Ricke, Richard Lara, Dustin Craig, and Logan Woodbridge with 55.  Winners of 2nd Flight were:  1st place - Jesse Ybarra, Travis Peres, Chaney Stallbaumer, and Trampas Gleason with 59.  2nd place – Gene Huck, Rick Spruiell,
    Monty Huck, and Mark Miller with 60.  3rd place –
    Kevin Russell, Chris Russell, Daniel King, and Landon Coley with 62.  Winners of 3rd Flight were:  1st place – Art Caudillo, Sam Caudillo, Joe Caudillo, and Carlos Rodriguez with 67.  2nd place – Mark Goodrum, Curt Guinn, Jeff Masonhall, and Mike Morlan with 67.  3rd place – Kip Etter, Ross Bartelson, Ben Gill, and Jeremy Goodrum with 68.
    The overall winner, Bank of Commerce, will have the opportunity to proudly display the traveling trophy over the next year.  Several other awards were given out including Nick Anderson, longest drive; David Carr, closest to the pin hole #17; Darrell Lampe, closest to the pin hole #11; and Ryan McKenna, closest to the pin hole #6.  Prizes following the tournament varied between golf balls from the Wellington Chamber of Commerce to some amazing silent auction items.
    "Credit definitely goes to the Wellington Golf Club because we couldn't have done it without them,” said Hansel.  Free beverages were sponsored by Wal-Mart to keep the players hydrated throughout the day.  Brisket, potato salad and more were provided by Penny’s Diner following the conclusion of the tournament and helping kick off the after party.  All participants received a Reebok polo commemorating the 10th year.  A special thanks to the Wellington Chamber of Commerce and to all of the participants, companies, and sponsorships that allowed the Wellington Area Chamber 10th Annual Golf Classic to be the success it was.
