Bellarmine Hosts 33rd Annual Golf Classic

Posted: October 15, 2020

On Monday, October 12th, the Bellarmine Alumni Office hosted the 33rd annual BCP Golf Classic on a gorgeous day at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club. County regulations shifted the traditional shotgun start into a full day of tee times, but the health guidelines did not deter 160 alumni, parents and friends of Bellarmine from enjoying a day of socially-distant fun and camaraderie on the golf course in support Direct Tuition Assistance. There was even an appearance by Fr. Jerry Wade, S.J. and Fr. Dick Cobb, S.J.

For the third straight year, there was a tie first first place with two teams posting scores of 55 (17 under par) in the scamble tournament. The tiebreaker was the lowest score on the highesty handicap hole, which gave the the 2020 championship to the foursome pf Pete Boggini ’81, Paul Boggini ’83, Jake Mendes ’83 and Bob Leininger '63!

After being on the winning end of a tiebreaker two years ago, the foursome of Matt Holder ’02, James Rozzi ’02, Matt Brown ’02 and Brandon Valenzuela ’03 just missed this year to finish as runners-up.

There was a tie in the putting contest, as Patrick Davis (parent ’24) and Joe Gentzkow ’01 both managed to hit the white hole cover on a tricky downhill putt. Finally, the closest-to-the-pin title went to John Riley ’73, who landed his ball inside 3 feet on Canyon #5.

Thank you to all the participants and sponsors of the 2020 Golf Classic!
