The drive to NACE International’s CORROSION 2019 began with an above-par turnout at Sunday’s Darrel D. Byerley Memorial Golf Tournament. Presented by the NACE Foundation and graciously sponsored by Tinker & Rasor as the Signature Sponsor, the annual event took place at the private Hermitage Golf Course in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
The President’s Reserve course, designed by renowned golf architect Denis Griffiths, trails through 300 acres of natural Tennessee wetlands and along the banks of the beautiful Cumberland River. It has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the top 10 courses in Tennessee.
Other sponsors included Sherwin-Williams as Hole In One Sponsor; Stearns Holiday Detectors as Shirt Sponsor; Brown Corrosion Services,Inc. and RCP Integrity Services as Longest Drive Sponsors; Salzgitter Mannesmann Stainless Tubes and RCP as Closest To The Pin Sponsors; and Kema Coatings Ltd. and MSA as Hole Sponsors.
As part of the Hole In One competition, sponsored by Sherwin-Williams, players had an opportunity to drive away in a new Chevrolet Camaro convertible by sinking the first hole-in-one of the day.
The tournament began with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and the shotgun start at 8:00. Awards were given out during the luncheon at 1:30 p.m. Winners included….
