¡@¡@AmCham Taichung held its third annual
golf tournament at Taichung International Country Club on April
24 (Saturday). Twenty-three teams in teams of four competed
in the tournament. The International Patient Center partook
in the tournament for the first time with its own golf team.
¡@¡@All participants enjoyed complimentary breakfast in ease and
without a sense of tension. The tournament began at 10:30am
While waiting for their turns, more and more people began to
stretch the body, practice swings, and observe others. The ambience
of the tournament was indeed heated in the drizzle. The 18-hole
course required a long time and tremendous energy. The delicious
hamburger lunch provided by the country club gained wide praise.
After refilling the energy, the participants swung even higher
in the sunny afternoon.

City, arrived at the site and gave a short greeting. At the

hours of endeavor, the team of International Patient Center
completed its course. Upon learning that the team score ranked
number one at that time, every member of the team was pleasantly
surprised. However, the scores of 11 teams were not yet recorded.
As the last team finally arrived the starting point at 6:30pm,
participants began to enjoy the delicious buffet dinner while
waiting for the announcement of the final score. Before the
final announcement, sweepstake was held. One of the team members
won the ninth place in the individual stroke record with 62
strokes. After a long wait, the great honor, group championship,
was finally announced. When Mr. Jack McDowell, the Chief of
