A White River Electric team that included recent Senior Long Drive champion John Cyrus can walk with an extra bounce in its collective step this weekend during the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.
The foursome, paired with pro Zach Fischer, won the annual Price Cutter Pro-Am by firing a 43 in field of 28 teams at Highland Springs Country Club. The team included Don Phillips, Lyle Rowland, Steve Wendler and Cyrus, a Mount Vernon native who regularly turns out for Missouri Sports Hall of Fame celebrity golf events.
The scramble format included the top 54 money leaders on the PGA Tour’s annual Web.com Tour, which plays Thursday through Sunday at Highland Springs. The pros were required to walk the course.
The Hayden Machinery team of Justin Hayden, Nate Seriotac, Taylor Robertson and Matt Kelly placed second with a 43, doing so as they played with pro Todd Baek.
A Price Cutter team of George Mires, Jeffrey Centerino and Mike Seever captured third place by scoring a 46. Their pro was Alex Aragon.
The Price Cutter Pro-Am was among the nearly 20 fundraising events in the build-up to the PCCC, which has generated almost $12 million for local children’s charities in its 25-year history. That figure includes a record $1 million-plus last year.
