EVERSON — On Friday, golfers who played in the first Jerrod Calhoun Golf Classic participated in a unique golf scramble.

Fairmont State men’s basketball coach Jerrod Calhoun said he wanted to make his tournament, which raised money for the basketball program, one that stuck out from the others.

The way he did that was with different challenges and contests around Green Hills Country Club.

“We have the Coach Calhoun challenge on one of the par threes,” Calhoun said. “We just have a lot of different things to separate our tournament from other golf tournaments.”

For the Coach Calhoun challenge, golfers could pay $5 to have Calhoun hit a shot for a team, and that team could use his ball. Other challenges included a putting challenge where golfers could win money if they made a certain length putt.
