Although they competed for low strokes, golfers in Trine University’s 18th annual Alumni & Friends Golf Outing met some high goals on Aug. 1—$52,000 in scholarships for deserving students.
Traveling from as far away as Los Angeles, Calif., 188 players teed off in morning and afternoon flights for a chance at first place honors, with four hole-in-one chances at big prizes. Everyone left with prizes after dinner in Zollner Golf Course’s Witmer Clubhouse.
Finishing with the lowest number of strokes to claim the day’s top spot was the Kappa Sigma team of Rob Klinefelter, Joe Ealy, Jeff Reinche, and Glen Kelly. The First Federal/ReMax/Krebs Appraisals team of Scott Gruner, Lance Krebs, Todd Stock, and John Stock placed second, while the Auburn Masonry team of Todd Stayer, Darrin Dickerhoof, Bret Henderson, and Todd McAfee claimed third.
Assorted tests of skill produced another set of winners. Ray Treen stuck one closest to the pin on hole 8, while Chuck Nedele sank the longest putt on hole 12. Gruner belted the longest drive on hole 9, and Jordan Essman drove the farthest of the day’s women on hole 14.
“I just can’t thank enough all of those who have supported us,” said Trine’s Vice President for Alumni and Development, Ray Stuckey. “The level of support we received to support the scholarship fund is truly amazing.”
