Break out the sticks, it’s time to swear at that tiny white ball.

The Inaugural Digger Athletics Scramble is on the calendar for Friday, July 21, 2023, at the Old Works in Anaconda, Montana.

The scramble will consist of 4 players per team, and you can sign up as a team, or as an individual. All monies raised during this event will go toward Montana Tech Athletics. Teams are $500, and individuals are $125. Your entry fee includes a swag bag, green fees, range balls, a golf cart, and lunch at the post-tournament awards presentation.

The tournament will also feature contests for Men’s Long Drive, Women’s Long Drive, and Closest to the pin. There are also several sponsorships available, from hole sponsorships to being the lunch sponsor for the event.

This is a great opportunity to get on the Old Works with the Orediggers, hang out with our fantastic coaches, and raise some money for Oredigger Athletics.

I checked in with Montana Tech Head Golf Coach, Sean Ryan about one other interesting part of this scramble. The Oredigger golf team will be spread out at each hole. Your team will have the option of paying the Oredigger Golfer to also hit a tee shot at the given hole, we have all seen this before. The big difference is, the Oredigger golfer’s shot doesn’t count!

So, let’s say your team decides you NEED Kodie Hoagland’s help off the tee on (the awful) #5. She steps up and bombs it straight down the center of the short grass. Awesome! Even better, anytime you elect to have an Oredigger drive for you, their tee shot doesn’t count toward the team score. You are basically sitting Zero.

The other great part of electing to have an Oredigger golfer tee off for you, is all the funds raised by the golfers will go toward purchasing a state-of-the-art golf simulator for the Montana Tech campus.

Make sure to sign up quickly, as this tournament will fill up fast. You can find out more information about the event and also signup HERE.
