The 26th Annual Ford Mays Liberty University Athletics Golf Tournament was successfully contested at London Downs Golf Club in Forest, Va., on June 3. A record total of 232 golfers battled for prizes in morning and afternoon flights. There were 28 teams that played in the morning and 30 in the afternoon, resulting in a sell out for this year's event.

The winning team from Runk & Pratt was captained by Brian Runk. He was partnered with Bradley Robertson, Bill Robertson and Chris Runk. Their team carded a 49 (23-under par).  

All 58 teams were awarded prizes on the day. In addition, more than 30 golfers received door prizes (supplied by Lynchburg area businesses) for such things as dinners at quality dining establishments, golf equipment, hotel packages and Liberty apparel. Every participant received a substantial gift bag which included a Liberty Nike Dri-fit golf polo, Nike hat, tournament golf balls, coupons and promotional items supplied by sponsors.

Sponsorship support for this event continues to grow, as a record number 75 businesses sponsored the tournament at various levels this year. The date for the 27th Annual Liberty University Athletics Golf Tournament has been tentatively set for June 9, 2017.
