Mary White was just one of the golfers who staked her claim to a title at the Rally for a Cure Golf Tournament, held Tuesday at the Steamboat Golf Club.
Now, the only question remaining is whether she will have steak when she collects her prize.
"The gross (without handicap) winner got a $50 gift certificate to the Chart House," White said after her 18-hole round of 82. "This tournament is just so much fun, and the awards for winning are great."
Other winners included Beth Taylor who's net (with handicap) 18-hole round of 58 earned her a title and dinner at Mambo Italiano.
Laurie Good fired a 40 to take home the nine-hole gross title and a certificate for the Old West Steak House and Kim Bonner's nine-hole round of 24 helped her pocket a meal at Mahogany Ridge.
But the real winner in Tuesday's tournament was the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which the tournament benefits.
"The tournament was a tremendous success," Steamboat director Linda Danter said. "Everybody had a great time and it was a lot of fun."
In addition to tournament winners, golfers could also cash in on prizes in several other categories.
Eliza Yeager and Lisa Stoll won closest to the pin contests; Lois DeJarnette also pocketed a prize for the straightest drive.
The longest drive in the nine-hole division when to Laurie Good. Good also won the longest put in her division.
Kathy Pakradooni had the longest drive in the 18-hole group and Shirley Brenner collected the prize for the longest put in that group.
This is the fourth year the tournament has been held in Steamboat Springs.
