Tri-City Herald: Desert Bash a big hit
By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald
It was 97 degrees Monday when the second round of Olie and Stu’s Desert Bash teed off at Meadow Springs Country Club in Richland.
While tournament co-founder Olie Kolzig was wearing a cool light blue shirt, he chided Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price for wearing a black shirt.
“It’s going to be hot,” said Price, whose Kadlec Medical Center team was in first place after the opening round Sunday and held on for the win Monday. “Olie was teasing me about the color selection of my shirt. I was just trying to support the foundation (he pointed to the tournament logo on the shirt) and be a good guy.”
Kolzig, co-founder Stu Barnes and Price were the only celebrities on hand for the event, which scaled back on high profile players this year to cut expenses and put more money into the Carson Kolzig Foundation, which helps fund the Responding to Autism Center in Kennewick.
