The Central Fort Bend Chamber’s Business Links Golf Tournament, the Tacky Pants Open, was presented by Finnegan Auto Group on May 21, 2019 at Black Hawk Country Club.
The day was beautiful and the competition was fierce.
The day began with a Tough Putt Competition, and the winner was Daniel Ruggles with Finnegan Auto Group. The 2:00pm shotgun start was the beginning of the two 9-hole scrambles that ran throughout the afternoon. The First Place team for the Front Nine was Earthcare Management which included Holden Abshire, Cory Schneider, Cade Roberts and Jason Roberts.
The First Place Team for the Back Nine was Silver Eagle Distributors which included Austin Sherrill and Noe Negrete.
While out on the course, players were able to compete in a Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive competition. The winners of Closest to the Pin for the Front Nine was Cory Schneider with Earthcare Management and Back Nine was David VanFleet with Vulcan Materials.
The winners of the Longest Drive for the Front Nine was Cade Roberts with Earthcare Management and Back Nine was Steven Ramirez with Memorial Hermann Sugar Land.
In the weeks, days, and minutes leading up to the 5:05 After Party, presented by Insperity, golfers and chamber members were able to purchase a “money ball” to be dropped from the Windstream Communications bucket truck during the 5:05 After Party.
The goal was to have their ball be the one to make it in or closest to the hole in order to win half the pot.
Dominic Anderson of CenterPoint Energy and Marty Schmitt of AG|CM were the winners of the Money Ball Drop.
In keeping with the name of the tournament, there was also a “tacky pants” walk-off.
The winner of the tackiest pants was Jason Scholtz with Colliers International.
