2009 Mitterling Cup
The 2009 Mitterling Cup was held on January 16, 2010 at Deer Brook GC in Shelby, NC. Fifty-one players came and competed in the match play event that has been named after Roger Mitterling. Roger was one of the original tour directors for the eGolf Amateur Tour and a big part of what the tour has become today. He passed away last January after a long battle with cancer. One thousand dollars was raised and donated to Stand Up For Cancer in Rogerâ€™s memory.
After being in a deep freeze for most of January, the weather cleared and warmed up to the 50â€™s. All the players were happy to be on a golf course since most have not even picked up a golf club in a while. Players came from as far as Columbus, OH to compete in the event. Special thanks to Howard Pavlofsky and Gary Andrews for making the long trip down from Columbus. There were lots of stories about Roger being told by just about every player which brought laughter and a few tears to this old director. Friendships are the biggest reason why the eGolf Amateur Tour stands above the rest. How many people can say they have over 3000 friends!
In the feature match, Charlotte Tour Director Dennis McCormac used 12 pars to outlast the team of Joe Lee and Larry Lee (Who believes he is going to have to take up chess!). The other feature matches had the 2009 Championship Flight Tour Champion Joe Jaspers take down the Clemson Orange Warrior, Danny Garrison. Danny was one of the original members of the Upstate, SC Tour where Roger and I started. When all the matches were completed the Charlotte/Pinehurst team had 14.5 points and Upstate Golf Services had 4.5 points. â€œWe will get them next year, even if I have to hire some prosâ€ said Larry Lee.
