Alpine Bank Announces Junior Golfers for Pro-Am

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

For the fifth year in a row, Alpine Bank has selected four up and coming golfers to play in the Alpine Bank foursome at this year's Rockford Pro-Am on Monday, July 15, 2013. Alpine Bank is pleased to announce that its foursome will include Maggie Kaiser, Camden Rock, Kyle Slattery and Spencer Horst.

Alpine Bank returns this year as a prime sponsor of the Rockford Pro-Am. Like the last four years, the bank is choosing to fill its foursome with young, aspiring golfers, giving them the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in such a prestigious event alongside golf professionals. In May of this year, the bank extended a special invitation to young golfers to apply to play in the Alpine Bank foursome. The application process involved an application where applicants noted their golf skill/ability, extracurricular activities and a personal statement explaining how playing at the Rockford Pro-Am would benefit them. In addition, each applicant was asked to submit a one-page letter of recommendation from a non-family member (i.e. coach, teacher, mentor, etc.). Fifteen junior golfers from the area applied to play. A selection committee reviewed the applications.

"I would like to thank all of the golfers who applied to play in Alpine Bank's foursome," said David A. Thompson, executive vice president of Alpine Bank. "We were fortunate to have had such a talented pool of applicants. These young players are a great tribute to the game of golf and the history of the Pro-Am."

In the coming weeks, Alpine Bank will choose the PGA Pro Golfer who will play alongside these talented individuals. Last year's foursome, with D.A. Points, took fourth place in the tournament.

Alpine Bank will be hosting a special luncheon for the foursome players, as a special thank you and to become acquainted with one another.
