Bumba’s $10,000 putt just wide


Scott Bumba advanced on June 11 from among 12 qualifiers for a chance at the CATA annual golf outing to win $10,000 by sinking a 50-foot putt. Alas, the ball rolled wide right of the cup.


Bumba, who works for Chase Auto Finance, and Terry Dortch, president of Automotive Compliance Consultants, both connected from 25 feet in the preliminary round, then Bumba won a putt-off for the final attempt.
