Northwest Mississippi Community College’s 2021 2+2 Scholarship Golf Tournament, presented by BancorpSouth and Northcentral Electric Cooperative, brought in more than $26,000 to benefit students at Northwest and the University of Mississippi at the DeSoto Center.

As in years past, this year’s tournament took place at the Cherokee Valley Golf Club in Olive Branch on Sept. 16 with a total of 33 teams competing.

First place went to Dr. Ed Field, Walker Swaney, Tim Mullins, and Drew Baker. Second place winners were Art Lacy, Ethan Lacy, Chuck Melton, and Scott Sanko. Third place winners were Michael Collins, Tyler McMurry, Douglas Hollowell, and Bryant Cashion. 

Closest-to-the-pin winners were Robert Johnson and Bill Cole. The competitor with the longest drive was Josh Tidwell. The putting contest winner from the morning flight was Robert Johnson, while Paul Cline was the winner from the afternoon flight. 

Money raised at the tournament will support the 2+2 Scholarship Initiative that benefits both colleges. For more information about Northwest, visit northwestms.edu.
