WKU Football hosts 16th Annual Touchdown Club Golf Scramble
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – On Friday afternoon, the Western Kentucky Football program held it’s 16th annual Touchdown Club Golf Scramble at Bowling Green Country Club.
After only having 11 teams participate in last year’s event, 30 teams of four players each signed up to play a round of golf at the yearly event.
Staff from WKU Football and supporters of the program competed for prizes that were awarded for longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin on par threes, and to the top three scoring teams.
Raffles and a silent auction were also held, with all proceeds from the event going towards the football program.
WKU Head Coach Tyson Helton didn’t play in the scramble, even though he has in the past, but said it’s wonderful to see the tremendous support from Hilltopper nation.
“Really, really ecstatic about the turnout today,” said Helton. “This group’s the foundation of what we’re trying to build here. Tremendous supporters for our program and our university. Can’t say enough about what we’ve got going on today. That’s part of the reason I came back was because I knew this was a great family town, a great university, people supported the university. This was kind of the truth to that today. We were hoping for 25 teams. We got 30, if that tells you anything.”
