The Medalist Tour and player Scott Holmes will meet in Canton Municipal Court this Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. to let a judge decide if Holmes actually shot the winning score in the Freedom Classic at The Quarry Golf Club in Canton on July 3rd of this year, and if he should collect the winner’s share.
Some questions raised by a fellow competitor after the event led Medalist Tour Director Mike Hastings to nullify Holmes’ victory in Canton, and to withhold the winner’s check from the event.
Holmes was paid $220 earlier in the day for a skin he earned; that payment was made to Holmes prior to the player’s claim against him.
Holmes filed a small claims suit in Canton Municipal Court against Mike Hastings and The Medalist Tour LLC on July 27th, seeking payment for the winning prize amount plus other expenses and damages. Holmes total claim is for $1,296. The initial hearing will be held in front of a magistrate, with final approval of the decision to be made by the judge in session 14 days after the hearing.
