Clinical and Health Psychology
of Life Golf Tournament
20 golfers teed it up at West End Golf Course in this year’s
Clinical & Health Psychology Quality of Life Golf Tournament.

The winner this year was the team
"Tastes Like Chicken" which ended up 3 under par. The team was so named because “birdies taste like chicken,”.
The team won in dramatic fashion as Kevin chipped in a ball off
the fringe on the last hole to create the winning margin. Kevin
and Duane took turns chipping close when the team could not land
the greens in regulation. The team was led by Jackie “Doc”
Ayers who had steady play and long drives. The secret weapon
leading to this team capturing the green/gold polyester jackets
was Dr. Jim Johnson. Since retirement, he has been training for
this event and it paid off big time. His “magic putter” dropped
key putts all day.
Other teams, in order of finish were
"Birdie Brothers" (-2), "Weapons of Grass Destruction" (-2),
"Team Intern-Grad" (+8), and "Here for the Beer" (+9).
