The annual St. Paddy’s Yachty Nationals Invitational golf tournament raised more than $8,000 for charity in March.

Hosted by National Marine Suppliers, more than two dozen companies provided sponsorship and fun, including The Triton, which sponsored the 9th hole and featured a fastest swing competition.

The contest started with players taking a swing at jumbo marshmallows. Neil Ashley got things going with a wing of 104 mph, which held until Keegan Pope from team “Who’s your Caddy” swung a 109 mph.

Frank Vanikerk from M/Y Helios swung in at 113 mph. This held until Ralph Kilian bested it with 117. Shawn Hodesty then recorded a 118 mph and this held until near the end of the tournament when Chandler Cleveland from Caterpillar recorded the unbeaten 125 mph. This swing won him a bottle of single malt Irish whiskey.

Benefiting from the tournament was the Marine Industry Cares Foundation.
