(GoMocs.com) -- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department held its 17th annual Porky's Open Golf Tournament at Council Fire this afternoon. A full slate of 35 teams took part in the six-flight event on a near-perfect day in the Scenic City.
Presented by BlueCross BlueShield Community Trust and Dr. David Adair, the Porky's Open has raised well over $1 million for student-athlete scholarships at UTC during its nearly two-decade run. This year's tournament topped the $100,000 mark for the second time.
Football coach Russ Huesman took up his normal spot, putting for the participants on the ninth green and men's basketball head coach Matt McCall hit tee shots on the par 5 sixth hole.
Former Mocs quarterback Jacob Huesman hit shots on the par 3 seventh and women's golfers Cris Perez and Monica San Juan hit tee shots on No. 2.
The rest of the UTC coaches and staff helped administer an outstanding tournament. There was a full bounty of raffle prizes and plenty of Mocs swag for all of the players.
