Bishop wins UCCS Pro-Am
COLORADO SPRINGS - Former Mountain Lions standout Tyler Bishop was the pro winner at the 2010 University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Pro-Am Scholarship Golf Tournament, which was held Wednesday at Kissing Camels Golf Course.
Bishop shot a 4-under par 68 and was the only golfer, pro or amateur, to score below par.
The first-place amateur team was comprised of Kent Freudenberg, Fred Slack, Andy Tulerton and Joe Neibur with the assistance of pro Chad Lydiatt.
The tournament format was a "shamble," with all amateur golfers hitting their second ball from the location of the best drive. From there, each golfer played their own ball for the rest of the hole. The two best scores were recorded as the team score. The pros played their own ball throughout.
Taking second place was the team of Michael Hajak, Rick Greene, David Hajak, Charlie Grant and pro Scottie Huelskamp. Third place was Tom Feilmeier, Matt Petty, Randy Florell and David Schwartz with pro Beau Smith.
Kate Fangman took home prizes for both the women's longest drive and closest to the hole. Feilmeier won the men's longest drive and Audi Dean had the closest to the pin.
Signature sponsors of the event were: Sports Authority, Robinson Dairy, Hyatt Place and Reliable Sanitation. The hole-in-one sponsor was Porsche of Colorado Springs and the closest to the pin sponsor was HealthQuotes.com. Sonterra grill catered an outstanding post-event meal.
Also in attendance and signing autographs were two members of the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders.
