BOSTON, MA — The Carl Spackler business office announced today that zero participants have withdrawn by March 2010. The 7-year string of at least one cancellation has come to an end. The Captains Club also held a news conference to announce the signing of Dan Obendorfer after receiving his National Letter of Intent to play golf in the 2010 Carl Spacker Open.
Obendorfer will once again represent the state of Massachusetts. He returns after placing 77th in a field of 88 golfers.

Obendorfer also parred the 7th hole during the final round.
"Spackler is without doubt the highlight of my short and illustrious golf career," said Dan from his home in Allston, MA. "A golden jacket in my closet would be something to relish for decades."
The final tournament is expected to be 51 golfers from 15 different states including Texas, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Illinois.
Dan Obendorder registers as the 44th participant. There are 51 or 52 participants expected to participate in the 2010 Carl Spackler Open. The annual player meeting is scheduled for Friday, April 16. There are just 15 days left before the annual practice round.
