4th Annual Pennewell Invitational

The 4th annual Pennewell Invitational (PI) will be played on October 6th at the challenging Walden Lake Golf Club in Plant City, Florida.
The PI will have a diverse group of contestants coming to play this year, with some familiar faces along with some "rookies" who will be new to the event. Last year's champions returning to defend their title are big hitting Scott Carter and level headed Tom Dorsch. It is expected that Charlie Jeromine and his hot shot partner, who came in a close 2nd last year, will be back seeking the title. Jay Allen and his partner, Ben, are preparing to make a run at the title with the expectation of winning back what they once held. Wayne Pennewell and Carl Walls, last year's 3rd place finishers are desperately hoping to maintain their position as #3 in an ever deepening field of contestants. Also expected back are long hitting Johny Groubert and his dad, John. Danny Reynolds and Terry Zipprer could make a run at the title this year, barring any medical injuries or rumors of such injuries. Plant City's own Larry Sellars will team with a new participant only known as "The Professor" in an attempt to keep the PI Title in Plant City. Long hitter Mark Pennewell will be paired with the tournament organizer, Nick Pennewell and the two plan on making a serious run at the tournament title.
Newcomers from Pinehurst are possible this year. Rumor has it that Emerson Rudicil and his partner are hot to take on the Pennewell and Walls team and knock them out of their #3 position. There is even talk of a 2nd group from the Pinehurst tournament, the Team of Larry and Luvell are planning on making a run at the title, if Emerson makes the drive. Other new groups invited to play this year are Mike Dejesus and Willie Tims and Taylor and Dennis. Whatever the outcome, the tournament will be a great time for all involved!
