With the help of Chancellor Gary Miller’s putt on the first green, the team of Sue Bodilly, Joe Schoenebeck and Bill Shay, captured a two-under par victory at the 3rd Annual UWGB Convocation Open, yesterday (Thursday, August 28). Participants included faculty, staff, alumni, retirees and friends. Chancellor Miller hit the ceremonial first ball off the first tee at Shorewood Golf Course, and was on hand to provide his putting acumen to groups on the first green before heading to the Campus Welcome activities.
Hole prize winners for the event were as follows:
Shortest Drive on #1 Joan Keberlein (Noteable: It was the longest shortest drive in Convocation Open history)
Closest to Pin on #2 Tom Barry
Longest Drive, Men on #4 Fred (sandbagger) Kennerhed
Longest Putt, Men on #5 Ron Starkey
