Tempo Golf Club, an indoor golf simulator in Charlotte, NC, was excited to recently host several players from Charlotte FC in a battle for the coveted Mint Jacket.
The players each took a spot in one of the four golf simulators in Huntersville, NC, and were the leader of a team scramble, switching out public guests at the half. The five-person teams took on Payne's Valley and Augusta, testing their indoor golf simulator skills at the Lake Norman facility.
Ashley Westwood, captain of the Charlotte FC MLS squad, said, "I think the lads enjoyed it more than the fans!" The lads mentioned include CLT FC's Bill Tuiloma, George Marks, Chris Hegardt, and forward Justin Meram.
Team Westwood took home the green jacket home in extra time, playing The Green Mile at Quail Hollow, or holes 16-18, to decide the winner. Defender Bill Tuiloma's team was the first runner-up.
In total, the teams played 11 holes of golf at three famous courses to determine a champion- and quickly shifted to a closest-to-the-pin contest at Pebble Beach's #7, all in under two hours.
