      And a beautiful trophy to go with the winner Darek the 2017 representitive for Andyson and his memory and impact . Untill the 2018 Andyson Memorial Tournament . Well done .


      Someone said something like . he wonders what would have happened if he had come to the forum and not found PaulTon's 2017 Andyson Memorial Tournament . 


      Scary thought huh ?


      Well it's a good damn thing Paulton is never going to let that happen . 


      This years 2017 Andyson Memorial Tournament  . From sign in to finish took some 105 days .


      4 threads and 117 pages .


      I think 169 players . 


      Absolutely the biggest and best and funnest single event I have ever participated in here . There have been many GR8 events over the years . 


      But nothing with this much heart and sole . All to commemorate the one GR8 man that deserves all this . And it means so much more NOW . That it is Created and Run by his WGT friends and players . And be this succesful . For the purposes of celabrating GR8 memories , playing fun golf , making new friends , Giving throughout , giving to charities . a gathering of at least 169 players with good souls and intent . With no fees or charges or any concern of money at all . 


      To read through the 4 threads . To read and hear the friendships new and old . To read the sincere gratutude and thanx from so many .


      Made the choice on which way to go in this years memorial for me difficult again . it would have been cool to capture all the GR8 and funny remarks . All the heartfelt thanx .


      As much of that as there was . would have been too much of an undertakoing . And too long and yes boring . 


      So this year . I have instead captured all of the artwork and videos . From the sign in , round 1 , round 2 , the matchplay rounds . Combined them all into the tribute . With a few posts along the way . With all the pposts from the semi finals to the end . 


      Pretty good stuff . And a lot of work and editing and altering of the difference btween the format here and of my website . Just to make it as clean and colorful as i could . 


      I think you will enjoy My 2017 Trbute to the Andyson Memorial Tournament . 


    BTW there is a new trophy awarded to one of the crew on page 26 .

    There was one more piece of business to take care of for me here.........     I just went to and made a donation in memory of Dennis Anderson. I believe this was one of Andyson's favorite charities....  It's been a pleasure to take part in this great event for a great guy.      Frank
