Mo Martin, 2014 Women’s British Open Champion, and Ilhee Lee, 2013 Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic Champion, recently led the field of 72 golfers in the second annual DocWalks4Animals Golf Tournament at Brookside Golf Club.
These LPGA Champions put on a clinic for the foursomes fortunate enough to win an opportunity to play nine holes with them. Ilhee and Mo demonstrated the skills that made them champions.
DocWalks4Animals was founded by Dr. Monica Metzdorf, a local pediatric urologist who has a passion for animals. Its mission is to financially support wildlife and environmental conservation efforts. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit the Wildlife Learning Center by providing them with a much-needed ultrasound machine for the care of their resident animals.
The tournament’s winning team consisted of Fernando Rios, Joe Lopez, Andrew Varela and Royce Kirkland. The “Closest to the Pin” winners were Ileana Shaw and Celia Milius for the men and Andrew Varela for the men. The “Longest Drive” champions were Stacey Holdredge for the women and Mark Pollard for the men.
