BIG FISH MICKEY FISHER MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Story & Photography by Tony Centonze This year marks a milestone for the Big Fish Mickey Fisher Memorial Golf Tournament, ten years of raising money for an APSU scholarship in the name of the beloved Coach Fisher. “This is the 10th anniversary of this event,” Eric Ellis said. “Our main objective is to raise money for a $20,000 scholarship that we give away. We present the recipient with $5,000 a year for four (4) years. We gave away our eighth scholarship this year.”

The annual celebration of Coach Fisher's life has turned into a 2-day event. Almost 200 people come out every year for a BBQ and auction which is held on Friday night prior to the golf tournament on Saturday. “We are really excited,” Mary Fisher said. “This is our 10th annual Big Fish tournament, and it keeps growing. Our scholarship is awarded each year to children of our military men and women. All our recipients have come from Fort Campbell. “This year, we have 176 golfers consisting of 22 4-man teams in the morning session and 22 teams in the afternoon. That's as many as we can have, and this is the first time we have sold out this event. Mickey left a lasting legacy, and we are excited to keep it going.”
