Portland, OR - Eight brave souls gathered at Claremont Golf Course this past Saturday morning to participate in the famed Hook, Hack & Slice Golf Tournament. Before teeing off we pulled names for the Two-Man Teams and we played a scramble format.

But there were a few very well played holes by some. The KP award was won by Brent “the shark” Walker with a great shot within 2 ½ feet of [...]
