Green With Envy at annual YMCA Golf Tournament
When you’re the only foursome of ladies surrounded by nothing but 18 holes teeming with testosterone, you’re bound to command a little bit of attention.
“They should have a prize for just girls, because we did really well!” said Taiwen Chen, who, along with Carol Neyland, Janet Darcangelo and Julie Smith, rounded out the female demographic at the St. Clair Country Club on Monday for the annual YMCA Golf Tournament.
Content with their office for the day, a total of 31 foursomes took to the green, including tourney director Dan Grealish, Lewis Gardner, Gregory Peaslee, Bill Spencer, Grant Mason, Mike Malone, David Bluemling and Mark Fleisner. Afterward, cocktails back in the club with the Godfather, aka Larry Spencer, who started the tournament 26 years ago. Dinner and a silent auction capped things off, and in the end, more than $100K was raised for the YMCA’s programs and initiatives.
“Who really benefits is our urban Y’s. We’re playing for a purpose,” said prez Rig Riggins.
