RUFFLE A FEW FEATHERS
Calm winds, blue skies, and
80-degree temperatures invited plenty of scoring opportunities for the
29 groups who teed off for the Trinity Athletics Club golf outing at the
Ruffled Feathers Golf Course in Lemont, Illinois, August 19. The undulating
fairways and greens prompted the players to hit their best shots in hopes
of keeping low scores.
The foursome of Dan Mannes
'92, Chuck Wierda '92, Jim Allen '91, and Pete Molenhouse '92 recorded
a 12-under-par 60 to win the best-ball scramble format. A total of 113
golfers helped raise nearly $67,000 for scholarships that will go to Trinity
"This was another fantastic
TAC outing," said Rick Van Dyken, Trinity's director of development. "The
weather was outstanding, and the scores suggest that most of the teams
played some pretty good rounds. Most importantly, the participants' support
helps us offer more opportunities to our student-athletes."
Members of the College's
sports teams welcomed the golfers to the tee boxes and greens of selected
holes, and President Steven Timmermans greeted each group on the 10th hole
and gave them divot tools and ball markers.
"This is a great way to meet
more people who believe in Trinity and our mission," Timmermans said. "Their
partnership with us is vital, and I want them to know how much I appreciate
all that they add to what we do."
