Last Season's Trophy Cup

By Justin Sapwell, Class of 2021

It was a blistering 105 degrees at tee off the first annual Prophy Cup in September last year. 40 golfers, including 3 faculty members braved the heat on September 15th at Superstition Springs golf Course to help raise money for Nobody’s Perfect, a special needs training center in Queen Creek Arizona. After the event, participants enjoyed pulled pork BBQ sandwiches and washed it down with an ice-cold beverage.

With a lengthy raffle prize list that included an autographed Arizona Cardinals football, 12 gift certificates to top tier courses, and a Ping golf bag (Congratulations Dr. Cottam!) it was hard to go home empty handed. Ultimately, this day of fun in the sun allowed ASDA to donate $1,025 helping special needs individuals hone their workforce skills to impact the rest of their life. The Prophy Cup team hopes to improve the event this year with even more players, donations, and funds raised!

This year, the event will be held again at Superstition Springs Golf Club (6542 E Baseline Rd.) on Saturday September 14th, 1:30 PM. Grab some friends, put together a team, sign up! There will be various raffles and contests within the course including longest drive, closest to the pin, etc. with some excellent prizes for the winners! Teams must be teams of 4. If you are unable to arrange that and need a team of 3, you must get approval from ASDOH ASDA by emailing asdohasda@atsu.edu.

Here’s how a scramble works:

A scramble means that all team members tee off on each hole and then decide which tee shot they like the best and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker.The other team members pick up their balls and place them within one club length (no closer to the hole) of the marked spot. Each team member hits their next shot from the chosen spot.This procedure is followed on every shot for the remainder of the hole, including putts. The ball should be marked on the putting green.Putts need to be placed within 3 inches of the marked spot (no closer to the hole). The first ball to go in the hole is counted for the team score.You may lift, clean and place your ball within one club length on the selected shot; however, you may not move your ball out of a hazard (including bunkers), out of the rough, from the fairway or rough to the apron or from the apron to the green.Men tee off from the white tees and women from the gold tees.The Tournament will be scored using the “Peoria” method of scoring. Your team’s score on six secret holes will determine your handicap for the tournament. Please turn scorecards in to the Tournament Director. Prizes will be given at the end of the tournament.
