Letter to the Editor | Monday, October 26, 2015
Everybody has a passion. For Knott Hall’s third floor, that passion is mini-golf. Throughout the stressful midterm week, Knott Hall was transformed into a 5-hole mini-golf course for the inaugural 3GA Tour. The tournament, run by freshman Thomas Piccione III, saw a fierce competition among its 20 participants. On the first day of the tournament, the weakest 16 were eliminated; the top 4 moved on to the second day of the tournament. Faced again with the same treacherous course, all four golfers put up a valiant fight in search of winning the soon-to-be-famous Orange Jacket. In the end, junior Pat Sheehan was able to overcome the various obstacles of the course (including stairs, football pads and intrigued bystanders) in order to prevail as the victor. The Orange Jacket fit perfectly on the 5-foot-10-inch, 190-pound Sheehan. When asked for comment, Sheehan said, “I’d like to thank God, my family and my caddy. We’re going to Disney World.” (Note: Knott Hall is not paying for his trip). Since Knott Hall is friends of all women (or so we proclaim), preparation for a W3GA tour has already begun. Any woman interested in participating should start working on her short game immediately.
Ryan Meade (19th place)
Thomas Piccione III (5th place)
