In the second annual Rosewood Charity Skins game, Bill Garrett represented his club by romping the competition on his home course. Garrett, who represented Rosewood in the skins game, claimed 11 of the 18 skins during the round of 18 holes against Lebanon Country Club's Curt Manning, Campbellsville Country Club's Drew Hayes and Lincoln Homestead's Mikey Yates.

Each skin, or hole, was worth $250 for a total of $5,000 that was donated by Bill Tatum. Each golfer was playing for a charity of their club's choice. Manning played for The Caring Place, Hayes played for Home for the Innocents and Yates played for the National Kidney Foundation.

Manning was runner-up, claiming six skins worth $1,500. Yates claimed third by winning one skin worth $250. Hayes finished last and won no skins. Each club's charity received a minimum of $500 for participating.

Rosewood also hosted a four-man best ball scramble before the skins game.

Will Dunn, Doc Howard and Todd Lewis won the scramble with a score of -13 after 18 holes. The team entered the competition with a plus one handicap.
