MANCHESTER - After a week of heavy rain, the skies cleared and course conditions were near perfect on July 14 for the 2013 Masters in the Mountains, a benefit golf tournament to support Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC). More than 150 golfers enjoyed a day at the Manchester Country Club, this year's venue for the SVHC Foundation's signature golf event.

Drs. Mike Brady and Terry Coffield led the tournament as co-chairs. Committee members included Michael McKenna, Marty Nadler, Rudy Weaver, and Margie Kaat. Several volunteers and SVHC staff members assisted the Foundation in executing the event, including Veronica Ariel, Marny Krause, Peg Gregory, Nicole Goswami, and Nicole Rau.

Tee signs purchased by 37 businesses and community members provided a visible display of support, and a fabulous array of raffle prizes were donated by area businesses and supporters of SVHC.

In the morning best-ball format, the team of Richard Volmer, Chris Lemieux, Rich Ogilvie, and Carson Thurber won the first place net with a score of 51. The first place gross honors went to the team of Todd Granger, Mark Butler, Scott Morrison, and Rudy Weaver with a score of 66.
