The Third Annual Full-time MBA Student and Alumni golf outing recently took place at Theodore Wirth Golf Course. Fifty students and alumni competed for the top honors but there was no match for the ’07 grads.
With an impressive ten under par, the alumni foursome; Cameron Zuege MBA ’07, Nate Johnson MBA ’07, Ben Roselle MBA ’07, and Allison Burchill MBA ’07, repeated their title for a second year in a row.
This however, did not come without a bit of suspense. As foursomes finished their round, golfers congregated outside of the clubhouse to hear the scores of participants as they came off the course. The gallery outside of the clubhouse was building and it continued to fill with students and alumni as the last foursomes made their way off the course relaying their scores.
Suspense built as Dean Puto and his teammates came off of the 18th green. With a stoic gallery, the score keeper asked the Dean, “how was the round?” With a smug response, Dean Puto responded, “Did anyone beat 11 under?!?!” The gallery gasped, knowing that the current score to beat was 10 under.
The Dean continued, “We didn’t either, but it would be quite the round!” Suspense turned to laughter, and with that, the defending champs knew their crown would rein for yet another year.
Following the festivities at the course, golf participates were greeted at the Park Tavern by FT MBA students and alumni who did not golf to share the stories of the day, and to award prizes to the winning foursome. It was a great event filled with much laughter, new introductions, and many swings!
