The Bixler Blazer

Winning the coveted Bixler Blazer that’s awarded for lowest adjusted score will take you places. In addition to cementing your place firmly in Kendallville Open lore, it will require a journey to Savile Row where the officially licensed tKO tailor will measure and cut the finest of garnet materials to encapsulate the golfer's hulking shoulders and then off to Milan where a designer will mold the raw lump of clay into a jacket worthy of being donned by a monarch. Known as the Paul Wall/“Peoples Champ” of trophies due to its accessibility to be won by golfers of all skill levels, the panache associated with its wear has at times exceeded that of its sibling of royal ilk- the heralded RDGC trophy. Recently added to Emily Post’s list of black-tie appropriate clothing, this jacket has been worn at celebrations of unions and other red carpet events the world over. In addition to gaining immortality, the winner is also awarded a five year exemption into the tKO field. Awarded in the clubhouse during the awards ceremony, the only thing more uncomfortable than the envious eyes from the rest of the field are the gawks and lustful stargazing from the Glendarin Hills club staff and gallery members.
