Rick Teverbaugh: Golf Classic fitting finish to vacation

It was a Classic way to end a week of vacation, and it was for a good cause.

My days off were climaxed by my participation in the Children’s Clinic Golf Classic at Anderson Country Club on Tuesday afternoon.

The weather was nearly ideal, and the course was in perfect condition. The definition of what exactly is a “celebrity” needs to be revisited by the steering committee of the event, and that problem was made worse in a photo on A1 of Wednesday’s THB.

But the main thing about the event was that it raised a record number of funds, and that money will make sure that the Children’s Clinic will continue to provide medical care to those kids who otherwise wouldn’t get it.

All of the golfers, all of the organizers and all of the sponsors are to be commended for the money and time spent to make the event go smoothly.

There was more than enough goodwill to go around, and it seemed most everyone had a good time.

It was especially good for me to get to play one hole with former PGA Tour member Curt Byrum. Not only did I get to see him play up close, but I got to meet him and ask him questions about professional golf.

He uses a long putter so we had a brief discussion about whether that club will be outlawed. He thinks it will be banned, and he’s not particularly happy about it.

Then I talked to him about my favorite TV golf personality, Gary McCord. I told him it was on my bucket list to meet him or at least conduct a telephone interview. He talked about how hard McCord works to make an entertaining telecast. He said Gary writes down things he wants to say during the event.
