The Forrest Rocket football team hosted their first annual golf tournament Saturday at the picturesque Buford Ellington Golf Course in Henry Horton State Park under some ever changing weather conditions.

In the end, the team of Jason Adkins, Justin Miller, John Summers, and Tommy "Bogie" Enoch took home top honors, shooting a twenty under par score of 52.

The First Commerce Bank team, consisting of David Delk, Luke Buckley, Danny Hill, and Ricky "Goose" Sweeney came in second place in the first flight, four strokes behind the winners at sixteen under par.

Half of Team Jean remained behind after shooting a 56 to take first place in the second flight. Pictured from left is Forrest head basketball Coach Jeremy Jean, tournament host Kyle Stacey, and Chris Frey. Not pictured from Team Jean are Randy Toombs and Ernie Fabian.

Team Jean captured the second flight, shooting an eight under par 64, including a smooth 31 on the back nine.

Forrest Lady Rocket basketball coach Jeremy Jean captained the squad that also included Randy Toombs, Kris Frye, and Ernie Fabian.

The First State Bank team of Jonathan Spence, Joe Spencer, Brannon Chain, and Trey McCallan also shot a 64, but lost on a match of cards to Team Jean to take second place.

The long drive honors on the monster par five 18th hole went to Danny Hill and closest to the pin at just eleven inches on number eight went to Forrest Athletic Director Scott Delk.

Closest to the pin on number 16 was Brandon Chain at 13 feet, nine inches.
