• Golfers can help Pellissippi State Technical Community College students and play golf at the same time when they tee off for the Swing Big for Students Tournament May 23 at Egwani Farms in Rockford. Sponsored by the Pellissippi State Foundation, the event is an 18-hole tourney with a shotgun scramble start. Golfers have their choice of an 8 a.m. or 1 p.m. tee-off. “The 1 p.m. tee times are filling up quickly,” said Pat Myers, director of alumni relations and Foundation events, “so players may want to consider starting their day by teeing off at 8 a.m. with the birds and the rising sun.” Organizers ask that registration be completed by May 19. There are several ways to support the fund-raising tournament. One is to register to play golf at $75 per person or $300 for a team of four. That includes 18 holes of golf plus a cart, use of the driving range, snacks, lunch, goody bags and prizes. Another option is to become an event sponsor. Businesses can gain recognition by donating goody bag items such as tickets, restaurant or store gift certificates, getaway weekends or in-kind gifts of products or services. Money raised will serve as a resource for those who value learning. For more information or to register, contact the Pellissippi State Foundation at 865-694-6528 or e-mail pmyers @pstcc.edu. The college also has a downloadable registration form at www.pstcc.edu.

• The Dennis Walters Golf Show, sponsored by the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, will be held beginning at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 13, at the Beverly Park Golf Course, sister facility to the Concord Park Golf Course. In 1974, Walters was riding a golf cart down a steep hill on a course near his home when the brakes failed. He was thrown from the cart and was paralyzed from the waist down. Walters is the only person paralyzed from the waist down who earns a living as a professional golfer. Walters and his dog, Benji Hogan, make appearances each year all over the country. Walters will perform various golf shots at Beverly Park. This event is free of charge. For more information, contact Beverly Park Golf Course at 865-689-6445.
