Local golfers came out to take part in the sixth annual Forsyth BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) golf tournament at Polo Golf and Country Club Monday, May 14.

Jim Morrow, who owns Morrow Family Medicine in Cumming, said it was the best in the event’s history. A record number of golfers (136) participated, and the sponsors gave generous donations.

“I think the people in the community are really getting behind the idea that children in school need access to this (technology) so they can succeed and break the stranglehold of reduced education many have been caught in,” Morrow said. “So far it’s just been a phenomenal year.”

Morrow and his wife, Peggie, have spearheaded the Forsyth BYOT Benefit, a charity of their Morrow Community Foundation that aims to provide access to internet and technology for Forsyth County students. They hold two fundraisers a year – the golf tournament and a 5K run in October.

“We’re very excited about finishing with a bang,” Morrow said.
