It’s that time of year again…time for the Chamber’s Golf Classic. As we prepare for this highly anticipated event, we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to recognize the “Wynn” Toss.

The “Wynn” Toss is named after longtime Chamber Board Member Phail Wynn (former president of Durham Technical Community College and current vice president of Durham and regional affairs for Duke University). He served on the board for more than 20 years and served as chairman of the board in 1991.  Needless to say, we at the Chamber love Phail! That’s why he has an item in the duffer package named after him.

Phail is all about helping Durham, so that’s what the “Wynn” Toss does…it helps golfers in need! Each player can use this unique and very non-USGA approved item to assist in hopefully improving their score.  Any time ball is in play, the player may pick-up ball and “toss” it whatever direction they need to help the team. 

Phail, thanks for everything you have done for Durham and the Chamber…and everything you will do for the golfer’s at Monday’s Classic!
