GUAM – For the second year in a row, a father-son team has taken top honors at the GCC Foundation Par Excellence Golf Tournament. A scorecard playoff propelled Dr. Ricardo Terlaje and his son Eduardo to first place in the annual tournament, which helps to provide scholarships for GCC students. Dr. Terlaje and 12-year-old Eduardo, a student at Bishop Baumgarter School, netted 68.8 on the links at LeoPalace Resort on Saturday, as did the second place team of Logan Reyes and Zeb Hauser. Having shot a 4 on the 18th hole, though, put the father-son duo ahead.
“He’s been playing golf with me for about a year and a half now,” Dr. Terlaje said of Eduardo. “He wants to play for F.D. (Father Duenas Memorial School).”
Last year, the father-son team of Dr. Robert and Stephen Gatewood won the GCC tournament.
Rounding out the top three teams this year were Jose Perez and Eddie Castro, who shot a 69 overall. Taking the wild card slot was the team of Rafael Battung and Zaldy Torres.
The annual GCC Foundation Par Excellence golf tournament raises funds for $1,000 scholarships for ten Guam Community College students and for CIP projects on the GCC campus. The scholarship recipients assisted at the tournament on Saturday.
“I want to thank everyone who played today, and of course all of our sponsors, including our eagle sponsors Bank of Guam and TRMA, for your continued support of the college and our students,” said Dr. Mary Okada, GCC President/CEO.
