As the sundial crept toward summer’s official arrival on Monday, a Williamsport Country Club crowd enjoyed a benefit visit from pro golfer Ryan Palmer. The winner of three PGA Tour events, Palmer conducted a morning clinic and participated in other activities during the 30th annual Penn College Foundation Golf Classic. The event has resulted in $625,000 in scholarship assistance since 1990, with another $55,000 in aid expected to be awarded this year. The first-place team was from Phillips Office Solutions (Trey Phillips, Mark Lauer, Davis Peck and Bill Knapsack); Allison Crane & Rigging (Larry Allison Jr., Tyler Richardson, Michael Richardson and Eric McNulty) finished second. Other prize-winners included Tyler Richardson, individual low net (59), and McNulty, individual low gross (71). Closest-to-the-pin honors went to McNulty, Hole No. 3; Bob Pursell, No. 10; Bill Manos, No. 15; and Maurice Bower, No. 17. An Eyewitness News segment about the tournament aired during WBRE/WYOU’s 11 p.m. newscast.
