Tiger couldn't hold it together long enough to beat one of the PGA's new stars Sean O'Hair.
But there was another prize given at this year's Quail Hollow Championship, and the winner not mentioned by the local press.
Seems if the rumor is correct our CMPD Chief was given an entire set of golf clubs, balls, and clothing while at Quail Hollow this past week. Details are still coming out but if true the chief needs to dump the goods fast.
As the CMPD has regulations against any officer accepting such gifts.
Gifts and Gratuities
A. Employees will not use their position to solicit any form of gift, gratuity, or service for gain.
B. Employees will not accept from any person, business, or organization any gift if it may reasonably be inferred that the person, business, or organization:
1. Seeks to influence an official action or to affect the performance of an official function.
2. Has an interest, which may be substantially affected, either directly or indirectly, by the performance or non-performance of an official function.
C. Employees may not accept any form of reward for the performance of an official function without the prior approval of the Chief of Police.
As it has been told to Cedar Posts the Chief didn't request the gift, but following the letter of the CMPD directives it was wrong to accept the gift.
So I would hope if this is true that the chief will take the "gifts" and give them to some charity auction, say John and Robin Fox and their annual Angels & Stars Gala benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
