United for D.C. hosts Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament

By Molly Bruh

On Monday, June 17 United for D.C. held its annual Celebrity Golf Tournament supported by Kaiser Permanente at National Golf Club. Over 140 golfers enjoyed a great afternoon of play, with all proceeds going to D.C. United’s charitable arm.

Participants were teamed up with D.C. United players and coaches as well as other well-known stars, including Oguchi Onyewu, John Harkes and AJ Wood. Participants had the chance to win prizes at contest holes, such as the Volkswagen Hole in One. This year, we saw the closet shot to the pin in tournament history! But, no one won the hot new ride. 

Here is a list of all the winners from the day.

  • 1st Place Overall: Monumental Sports
  • 2nd Place Overall: Triad Construction playing with Perry Kitchen
  • 3rd Place Overall: the Screaming Eagles with Nick DeLeon
  • Closest to the Pin: Cushman & Wakefield's Casey Larmer
  • Women's Longest Drive: White + Partners' Lauren Giles
  • Men's Longest Drive: D.C. United defender Taylor Kemp
  • Putting Contest: Screaming Eagles" Phil Martin

A big thank you goes out to Kaiser Permanente for its supporting sponsorship, Lenkersdorfer Jewelers for its silent auction sponsorship, GSI for hole sponsorship and Volkswagen for contest sponsorship. To learn more about United for D.C. visit unitedfordc.org.
