The 9th annual Jim Tanner Caddy Classic was played on Monday July 6th. It was a perfect day to celebrate the rich history of Pawtucket Country Club and the many years that our guests played and worked at the grand old links. Jim Tanner has worked at Pawtucket for more than 6 decades and once caddied for Sam Snead and also caddied for Charlie Sifford when he won the RI Open at Pawtucket in 1956.
Sam Snead and Charlie Sifford are both in the PGA Hall of Fame. Jim Tanner is a member of the Professional Caddies Association Hall of Fame and the Pawtucket Country Hall of Fame.

The foursome of Kevin Fortin, Joe Videtta, Joe Gabriel, and Eric Kmetz won the team gross with a score of 5 under 64. The team net was won by Adam Craig, Jeff Emond, Mike Hazel and Jon Hall with a 15 under par 54. Closest to pin on 5 was won by Tino Ciatto and Bob Crawford won closest to pin on 15. Playing partner, Joe Crissafi reported that Bob made the 12 inch putt for a birdie. Long Drive was well over 300 yards recorded by Don Morin.
