In addition to promoting the importance of screening to reduce the occurrence of colorectal cancer during a round of tournament golf we will also strive to further advance and promote the educational scoring format that is the key defining element of our educational outreach tournament format. This Smart Scramble format has the potential to educate its participants as to the benefits of any cause and in doing so develop a stronger supporting community.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
In memory of Tony Peach, our golfing buddy
who lost his battle to colon cancer in 2013.
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States. The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for the number of colorectal cancer deaths in 2019 will be 51,020.
Colon Cancer Detection
It is generally agreed that regular screening can often find colorectal cancer early, when it is most likely to be curable. In many cases, screening can also prevent colorectal cancer altogether. This is because some polyps, or growths, can be found and removed before they have the chance to turn into cancer.
