The Cleveland Catholic Diocese may have lost its longtime leader to retirement last week, but more than 125 golfers will hit the links in his name at the Bishop Pilla Golf Classic
. The 16th annual tournament begins with a Pilla meet-and-greet and a practice session, followed by a shotgun start at Firestone Country Club's north course. By midafternoon, trophies will be awarded to the top players. "Firestone is, by far, one of the most difficult courses I've ever played in my life," says local linkster Gordon Prylinski, who's participated in the classic in the past. "Playing on a course like that can separate the men from the boys."
