Allen McGee and Rick Turner were the brightest Slammer Tour stars at the 2013 Slammies ceremony.
McGee will no doubt have to build an addition to his trophy case after loading up his vehicle with six awards and Turner had a night to remember by earning The Preston Cup as Slammer of the Year and the BG Golf-O-Max Cup as most improved player of the year.
The Preston Cup award for being named the Slammer of the Year is voted on by fellow tour players and made available courtesy of Bill and Carole Ryan. It is the tour’s top award.
Falcon Ridge Golf Course hosted The Slammies on Friday. The exciting evening featured a multi-course dinner, light entertainment and the presentations. Slammer Tour members had to have played a minimum of 10 events in order to be eligible to receive an award.
The Slammer Tour made a donation of $7,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation that comes from tour three-putts, the golf expo, EG events and other contributions.
