A full complement of players took part Friday in the Friends of St. Anthony's Golf Outing at the Effingham Country Club.

Proceeds from the outing and a prize raffle will go toward the cost of the hospital's Center for Diagnostic Imaging, helping fulfill a pledge of funding made by the Friends.

Trick shot artist Craig Hocknull put on an exhibition at noon, just ahead of the start of play.  In one of his more interesting tricks, Hocknull tested the friendship of his longtime associate and Country Club Pro Tim Krause, asking Tim to serve as the "tee" for the shot.

More than 30 teams of golfers took part in Friday's outing.
