-- Corporate Claims Management, of Ivyland, PA, sponsored a “Hole-In-One” challenge at the annual golf outing on June 7, hosted by NAFA’s Michigan Chapter.
James Papuga of Clinton Township, Michigan won CCM’s $10,000 Hole-In-One Challenge with an incredible hole in one on the 175 yard, 14th hole at the Eagle Crest Golf Club in Ypsilanti, Michigan. In attendance for CCM were Vice President, Brian Colvin and Account Managers, Bob Stickney and Reanna Tackett.
Papuga’s hole in one was the first in four years on the very difficult hole. He was only the second person to tee off on the 14th hole that day. “I couldn’t believe it,” Papuga exclaimed. “I didn’t actually think it went in.”
Papuga attended the event as a special guest of Handleman Company Fleet Manager, Dave Hein. The hole in one was witnessed by his playing partners Gregory Lozon, Rick Underwood and Bruce Blondo, along with CCM’s Reanna Tackett and Eagle Crest Golf Club Professional Rudy Millward.
NAFA Michigan Chapter’s new chairperson, Steven Pederson from VPSI Inc., spoke with Papuga at the dinner after golfing concluded. “He was still in shock that he had hit the hole in one and won $10,000.”
