Going for the green

The syndication distributors topped the station/advertising executives for the second straight year at the 6th Annual Menchel Cup Golf Tournament.

The syndication team, focusing on clearing hazards instead of shows, was led by Warner Bros. Domestic Television's Dick Robertson and Columbia TriStar Television Distribution's Barry Thurston.

The team topped the station side 49-31 in the Ryder Cup-like format. CBS Television President and CEO Les Moonves, Hearst-Argyle's John Conomikes and a number of other top station executives took part.

The Menchel Cup, which is named in honor of late MCA head Don Menchel, was held over two days in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Menchel Cup has raised over $100,000 for Brandeis University, where a scholarship in Menchel's name has been established.
