Angus Enthusiasts Tee-Up for the Eighth Annual Golf Tournament


            Sunshine and a little bit of wind kept things interesting for the 73 players that took to the greens to support the Angus Foundation.  A record number of golfers came out to support the Angus Foundation at its 8th Annual Golf Tournament, hosted by The Legacy Golf Club in Norwalk, Iowa. 

            “With a new record of 73 players, this year’s golf tournament was another successful fundraiser for the Angus Foundation,” said Angus Foundation President Milford Jenkins.

            Old and young golfers alike were challenged by the scenic course and were happy to return to the club house to enjoy a Certified Angus Beef® steak lunch at the award ceremony, compliments of Freedman Meats, Houston, Texas.

            The winners of Flight A, representing Iowa, included players Jerry Carrico, Redfield, Iowa.; Jean Burch, Runnels, Iowa; Josh Barnes and Troy Tickner, both of Adel, Iowa.  Winners of Flight B, representing South Dakota and Colorado, included Scott Bush, Britton, S.D.; Dick Rogen, Brandon, S.D.; Chris Styles, Brentford, S.D.; and Jeff Creamer, Montrose, Colo.  Winners of Flight C, representing California, Kentucky and Texas included Carole Silveira, Firebaugh, Calif.; Calvin Levisay, Creston, Calif.; Jon Malmborg, Bowling Green, Ky.; and Kyle Kemp, Bridgeport, Texas.

            “We’re very appreciative of the players and sponsors who help make this event possible for the Angus Foundation and who allow us to advance our education, youth and research activities for the betterment of the entire Angus breed,” Jenkins said, “We invite others to share in this fun activity with us in Perry, Ga., in 2009.”

            The Angus Foundation was established in 1981 as a not-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization to support Angus education, youth and research.  To learn more about the Angus Foundation and the programs it supports, call the American Angus Association® at 816-383-5100 or go to
