The Annual Ray Guy Classic Golf Tournament drew 22 teams Friday to the links at Belle Meade Golf Course near Thomson.
Winners of the tournament was the group with Queensborough National Bank & Trust consisting of Ralph Starling, Stewart Young, Tom Watson and Scott Hawkins. The Martin General Contractors team of Mike Martin, Brad Green, Mike Cooper and Steve Hilton took second place and the Family Care Group team of Dr. Daryl Wiley, Robert Pickrell, Carson Wylie and Harrison Mohr took third.
Closest to the pin was won by Stewart Young on No. 5, Brian Corbett on No. 9, Hatcher Sisson on No. 11 and Russell Gilliam on No. 17. Pickrell had the longest drive for the men and Meg Pate had the longest for the women.
Ralph Starling, a banker at Queensborough National Bank in Thomson, won this year's putting contest. And after a weekend of rest, Starling headed to Augusta for a week to work The Masters -- something he has done for several years.
"It was a lot of fun," said Starling in reference to winning the contest.
Starling is the local radio color commentator for the Thomson High School Bulldogs' football team and the play-by-play announcer for Bulldogs' baseball team. He also is host of The Two Old Dog s and another show on WTHO that airs in the off-season.
Doug Keir, chief executive officer of McDuffie Regional Medical Center in Thomson, said everyone he talked with had indicated they had a great time.
"It gave a lot of people a chance to get away from work and have some fun," said Keir.
