Dr. Charles Mueller and Dustin Blackburn, right, watch Mueller's tee shot on the seventh hole of the booster club's two-man scramble Saturday at Oakwood Golf Course. A "skirt hole" allowed participants to tee off from the women's tee on No. 7 for a small donation. They also had to wear a poodle skirt.

The team of Derrick Shelton and Denny Blackburn shot an 11-under par 61 to win the Houston Tiger Booster Club’s two-man scramble Saturday at Oakwood Golf Course.

Thirty-six golfers participated in the event, which raised money to benefit athletic teams and players at Houston High School.

Roger Tune and Shelton shot a 62 to finish second in the championship flight. Tune and Ida Sargent were third with a 66.

Edgar Scantlin and Billy Witham won a tiebreaker with Larry Manier and Brandon Ingram to finish first in the A flight. Both teams shot 73s. Chris Trentham and Mike White were third with a 74.

Cash prizes were awarded to each winning team.

Susan Hansen was the winner of the women’s longest drive. Tune won the men’s longest drive and putt. Gary Stroup won the closest to the pin contest.

A “skirt hole” on No. 7 allowed golfers to hit from the women’s tee if they made a $5 donation and wore a poodle skirt.
