The Greenville Country Club held its annual Father’s Day Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 17, with 37 two-person teams participating. The format was a two-person scramble. A very big shout-out to Gene Kious, Greenville Country Club president and Steven Rommerskirchen, tournament director, for making the event such a success.
Gary Brauns and his son Gaite Brauns are the 2023 Father’s Day Champions, winning the tournament on the third hole of a sudden death overtime playoff. Gary and Gaite were tied with Clint Hamel and his daughter, Paige Hamel, after 18 holes of play, both shooting outstanding scores of 9 under par 63. In the sudden-death overtime playoff, both teams scored pars on hole No. 1 and hole No. 2, but on the third hole of the playoff, Gary Brauns jugged a 30-foot birdie putt to win the Father’s Day Championship.
