Driving Education, One Swing At A Time

On March 3, PESA hosted its 17th Annual Explorers of Houston Golf Tournament, Chaired by Robert Workman, President & CEO, DistributionNOW. PESA members and customers gathered at the Golf Club of Houston for a day of networking and friendly competition. With proceeds supporting the Offshore Energy Center and the IPAA/PESA Petroleum Academies, the event’s strong turnout demonstrates PESA members’ dedication to education.

“As PESA members drive the industry through technological innovation today, the Explorers of Houston Committee provides educational opportunities for the industry leaders of tomorrow,” said Leslie Beyer, PESA President. “Thank you to tournament title sponsor Schlumberger and DistributionNOW, Energy Alloys, GE Oil & Gas, LoneStar Group and Oil States International for continuing to support PESA’s scholastic endeavors.”

Beyer kicked off the tournament by welcoming attendees, recognizing Explorers of Houston Committee Chairman Robert Workman for chairing the tournament and thanking the entire PESA board for their companies’ participation. The 26 teams competed in a shamble with the World Oil team placing first. Second place went to the Dover ALS team followed by the GR Energy Services team in third. Awards were also given to contest-winning golfers. Andy McDowell, World Oil, won Closest to the Pin; Scott Long, Flexitallic Group, Inc., had the Straightest Drive; Josh Nichols, LTR, had the Longest Drive and Kevin McDougald, Weir Oil & Gas, was Closest to the Pin in 2.

The tournament provided a unique opportunity for PESA member companies and customers to cultivate relationships, and was also great practice for those competing in the golf tournament at PESA’s upcoming Annual Meeting on April 7 in San Diego. As challenging market conditions prevail, PESA events provide valuable networking opportunities for our members. Thank you to everyone who supports the Explorers of Houston in positively influencing the future leaders of the energy industry.
