Supporters of the Northeast Mississippi Community College football team gave back to the program recently by enjoying a pleasant afternoon on the links.

The Tigers completed their annual golf tournament on Friday, May 30 at Shiloh Ridge Golf Course. The event was hosted by the Northeast Development Foundation as a fundraiser for the football department.

The competition was contested in a four-person scramble format. Attendance at the tournament nearly doubled from one year ago with 16 teams and over 60 golfers playing the greens and fairways.

The quartet of Gabe Null, Eric Russell, Jerry Smith and Larry Jobe took home top honors with a 25-under-par 47. It was the second straight year that Jobe and Smith were able to assemble the winning squad.

The combination of David Odle, Dennis Bumpas, Alex Tull and Michael Tull finished as runner-up in the event with a 20-under-par 52.

In addition to the tournament, golfers participated in three separate events along the course. Jeff Deaton claimed the closest to the pin contest on the 149-yard No. 10.

Rob Hardin connected on the straightest drive on the par-four seventh hole while Alex Tull hammered the longest drive at the par-five No. 11.
