Union County Country Club hosts Tom Sherrill Memorial Golf Scramble
The Tom Sherrill Memorial Golf Scramble is planned Sept. 21 at the Union County Country Club course in Anna.
This year’s scramble will feature long drive entertainment.
The entertainment will be in conjunction with the Lick Creek School Educational Foundation fund raiser held annually. This will be the ninth year for the golf scramble.
The long drive professional is Andrew Herbert, who grew up in Union County.
A biography of Andrew’s professional career is as follows:
The following are his stats: two-time Volvik World Long Drive Championship finalist.
Current world ranking 61.
Longest competition drive: 415 yards (2018 World Long Drive East Coast Classic, Columbia, S.C.
Longest non-competitive drive: 462 yards (Mountain Ridge Country Club, hole no. 8 West Caldwell, N.J.)
Fastest club head speed: 145 mph.
Fastest ball speed: 213 mph.
Andrew will set up on hole 18’s tee. He needs to be on a long straight par 5.
As the groups come through hole 18 the groups can donate money to the cause and will receive different tiers of benefits depending on the amount they donate.
The higher the donation the better the return on the investment they receive.
A certain amount to get a long drive hit by Andrew (up to four long drives hit per group), a higher amount to have a guaranteed birdie, and an even higher amount to have a guaranteed eagle.
A volunteer will assist with collecting donations and keeping a log of who has donated and the amount donated.
Coach Ron Fulenwider said he is excited about Andrew being a part of the ninth Tom Sherrill Memorial Golf Classic and he hopes to see everyone at the event.
