2012 R. W. Durham Seahorse Classic Pictures May 2, 2012 by peggy Kaitlin Cobb wishes Grandpa Wally good luck as the 2012 tournament kicks off! Golfers practicing at the driving range prior to the tournament. The beautiful view from the veranda of the Palos Verdes Golf Club - looking towards the 8th hole. Golfers from Children's Hospital LA, Alex Chaves, Jr. , Alex Chaves, Sr., Keith Hobbs and Jim Deeken have an unusual tee off on hole #6! Their tactics must have worked - they won 3rd place net. Ivan Barrett, M.D. and Dave Breiholz congratulate Mark Pfeil, PGA Professional, on another perfect shot to the green on hole #8! Sponsor Kevin Lanigan concentrates on making the putt on Hole #14 while fellow sponsors David McKinnie, Richard Scoville and Nick Stiassni casually observe. Golfers from Gold Sponsor, Wells Fargo, Steve Hulbert, Andy Skillen, Dave Taaffe and Robert Volkel had fun planning their strategy for the day. Tournament winner and sponsor, Bill Finestone, tees off on hole #1. The Aetna Gold Sponsor Team of Adam Knox, Theresa Bradley, Romesh Sagadevan and Desiree O'Donahue made sure they had warm jackets for the afternoon chill. Pat O'Brien, Msgr. Greg Cox, Michael O'Brien, Tom Rodberg and Van Cline find time for fun while waiting to tee off. Volunteer Eleanor Ginsberg and Keith, the Maui Jim rep, helped players select their new sunglasses - one of the many tee prizes offered to every tournament participant. Davis Moore, Vic Ullrich, Morgan Moore III and Gary Houston enjoyed a great day. Jim Cook, Joe Leimbach, Bill Cullen and Lew Latimer have an unusual strategy for sinking the putt on hole #4. Mike O'Brien (who won the long putt contest!), Tom Christie, Michael Learned and Dick Farman finished Hole #6 with a smile. Karen Mabli demonstrates the winning form that won longest drive for ladies on Hole #1 and closest to the pin on hole #8. Joe Baxter, Jerry Koyanagi, John Kennelly and Sean Cerda from Platinum Sponsor, Toyota Motor Corp., USA Inc. had a fabulous day at the tournament! Toyota's 2nd group consisted of Todd Katayama, Gary Koga, Takeo Miyagishima and Steve Hatanka. Tournament Photographers, Karen Miller and Dawn Knickerbocker, have the camera turned on them as they thank George Schuler for his Silver Sponsorship! Eric Vander Ploeg watches as Aztec Tents teammate, Alex Kouzmanoff, tries to sink the long putt for the $500 prize. An array of gorgeous trophies were placed in wait for the announcement of the tournament winners. Ryan Ramsdell, Wally Durham's grandson, backed by PCCH President, Anne Clark and tournament co-chair, Sharon Zahoryin opened the evening program with poignant remarks about his grandpa and his own experience at Children's Hospital LA. Hundreds of balls dropped from the helicopter onto the first fairway. Tournament volunteer, Kak McKinnie, held the "lucky number" that dropped closest to the pin and won the $1,000 prize!
