Mickey's Tournament is Monday

An automobile or a golf vacation could go to the lucky golfer scoring a hole-in-one Monday in Mickey's Memorial Golf Tournament.

This year the event held in honor of the late Fisher A. "Mickey" Tull, distinguished professor of music at Sam Houston State University, is scheduled for Memorial Day (May 31) at the Wedgewood golf course near Conroe. Memorial Day is an official staff holiday at SHSU.

Proceeds from the tournament go into a scholarship endowment in the Department of Music at Sam Houston State. Charlotte Tull, tournament director, said that more than 20 teams have already entered, but last-minute groups are welcome. Format for the event is a four-person scramble. Play is scheduled to begin with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. Players may enter as members of teams or individually, to be placed on a team.

The entry fee of $115 per player includes a breakfast snack, free commemorative cap, practice balls, cart, refreshments and barbecue buffet.

Additional awards include first, second and third place team trophies, awards for individual contests such as long drive, closest-to-the-hole and farthest-from-the-hole, and door prizes. The Copeland Companies and Merrill/Lynch are co-sponsoring the event.

For those unable to play in the fund-raiser, sponsorships are also available at $100 per hole and $115 to sponsor a music/student golfer as a "designated hitter." Direct contributions to the scholarship fund will also be gratefully accepted.

Anyone who would like to participate should contact Tull at 409-295-7919 or Carol Smith, assistant tournament director, at 409-294-1326 (work) or 409-291-1472 (home).
