CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga athletics department held the 14th annual Porky’s Open golf tournament under beautiful clear blue skies Tuesday afternoon at Council Fire Golf Club. Thirty-one teams took part in the event with prizes awarded in five flights.
Members of the Southern Conference Champion men’s golf team hit tee shots for golfers on two holes while head coaches Mark Guhne (men’s golf) and Heath Eslinger (wrestling) took up their spot on No. 7 and assisted golfers with tee shots on the par-3 hole. Football head coach Russ Huesman helped the participants with putts on the No. 9 green.
The Porky’s Open, named for Frank “Porky” Kinser, was created to benefit student-athlete scholarships at UTC. The event has raised well over $1 million for the Mocs.
