Memory Car 'nit

ach year, the best male golfers
from the four predominantly
Jewish country clubs in the
Detroit area battle it out in a Ryder
Cup-style tournament.
So who gained bragging rights in
2012?
Tam-O-Shanter overcame Franklin
Hills' home course advantage last
month in the 21st annual Inter-Club
Challenge Cup and won the tourna-
ment.
"I'd say it was a mild upset for us to
win it," said Tam-O-Shanter golf pro-
fessional Dennis Spaulding. "Franklin
Hills was the favorite. They're histori-
cally very good, and the tournament
was played on their home course'
Brent Bortman, Richard Dalimonte,
Kyle Fenton, Darrin Levin, Rob Levy,
Aaron Shepherd and Alex Simmons
were on Tam-O-Shanter's winning
team.
Tam-O-Shanter now has won the
tournament seven times. Franklin
Hills has won it eight times, giving the
clubs a combined 15 championships
in 21 years. Knollwood and Wabeek
round out the quartet of clubs in the
tournament.
Here's how the two-day competition
works. Each club has six golfers, who
play as three two-man teams. On the
first day, the golfers play a scramble
format. Teammates each play the
team's best shot. The second day is
better-ball. Each golfer plays his own
shot, with the team counting the best
score on each hole.
The tournament site rotates each
year among the clubs (Tam-O-Shanter
will be the 2013 host), and each club
has its own method for selecting team
members.
At Tam-O-Shanter, the reigning club
champion and low qualifiers for match
play in the club championship earn
berths. If someone can't play in the
Challenge Cup, Spaulding will select a
golfer, similar to a captain's pick in the
Ryder Cup.
Tam-O-Shanter needed seven play-
ers this year for the Challenge Cup
because Fenton and Shepherd each
could play only one day.
Spaulding gave credit to Knollwood
golf professional Tom Fortuna for
coming up with the idea for the tour-
nament. Back then, Fortuna worked at
Wabeek.

He's A Life Saver

Seth Goldstein is a senior cross-country
runner at Cooper Yeshiva High School,
a small Orthodox Jewish school in East
Memphis, Tenn. He's also a hero.
According to a story written by
reporter Geoff Calkins in the Memphis
Commercial Appeal, Goldstein stopped
running during a race to help a com-
petitor from another high school who
had suffered a seizure because of the
heat and fallen.
A lifeguard, Goldstein used his train-
ing to aid the stricken runner and
yelled for a spectator to call 911. After
an ambulance arrived and emergency
medical personnel took control of the
situation, Goldstein resumed running.
Every other competitor had finished
by then. Once his teammates found
out what happened, they ran with
Goldstein for the final part of the race.
Spectators and runners cheered loudly
as he crossed the finish line.
Gil Perl, dean of Cooper Yeshiva
School, had this to say about
Goldstein's heroic actions:
"It was an example of the values
we're trying to instill in our kids," he
said. "We have the concept, from the
Talmud, that if you want God to have
mercy on you, you have to have mercy
on others." ❑
