Georgia (May 24, 2006) — Participants in the 12th Annual Dot Martin Scholarship Golf Tournament didn’t play for a green jacket; instead‚ they helped raise scholarship funds for student−athletes.

“The tournament puts alumni back in touch with the campus community‚ and it also attracts new sponsors who have never donated before‚ exposing them to the university for the first time‚” said George Olney‚ director of development for athletics. “We then see them become engaged with KSU.”

The classic‚ an annual four−person scramble tournament‚ was held Monday at the BridgeMill Athletic Club in Canton. The tournament raised more than $29‚000 and played host to 120 participants‚ who enjoyed a breakfast and dinner buffet‚ complimentary beverages and snacks‚ and appreciation gifts.

The Spencer Askew Team won the tournament and received a crystal bowl‚ a dozen Bridgestone golf balls and gift certificates to Jocks and Jills Sports Grill.
