They were a huge help.

Highlights of this year’s tournament include Chip Johnson and  his wife Pamela Kerrigan helping Special Olympic athletes out on the golf course again this year. Their daughter Jillian also volunteered. Pamela Kerrigan’s mother Marian plays in the tournament every year as well and is our best volunteer at Braintree’s Accessible Golf Clinics on Monday’s at Braintree Municipal Golf Course. Tom Waters PGA, of Essex Country Club, and Steve Clancy of Granite Links Golf Club have played in the tournament more times than any other NEPGA members. Keith Barber of Pine Brook Country Club, Mark Nelson of Pine Brook Country Club, and Tim Tierney of Weston Golf Club are also longtime supporters of the tournament who always go above and beyond in helping the athletes. Chris Eskierski, Griffin Bushell, Logan French, Aman Ailani, Ellis Yoder, and Mike Plansky from the Bentley Golf Team were back again to volunteer. The Bentley guys always make our tournament better. Many thanks to NEPGA member and Bentley University golf coach Mick Herron for sending his team. Many thanks as well to my friend Jack Neville PGA, who played in the tournament again this year, and has been one of my mentors with the Special Olympics.

Bob Beach, PGA
