Boyle putt for $10,000 just wide

November 22, 2010

Terry Boyle advanced from among 21 qualifiers for a chance at the CATA annual golf outing to win $10,000 by sinking a 50-foot putt. Alas, the ball stopped about 18 inches wide of the cup. 

Boyle, who works at the Chicago Sun-Times, dropped the ball into the cup from 25 feet in the preliminary round.


Nearly 500 golfers attended the June 13 event. In addition to the putting contest, the outing included several specialty-hole contests on three courses. Unfortunately, no one walked away with a Hole-in-One prize. Winners were:
