Ok golfers! Here's a chance to duff around a PGA-quality course and remember one of Kettering's most favored friends when Kettering University hosts The President's Cup Invitational Golf Tournament Monday, Sept. 16. The event is at the home of the Buick Open, Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc.

The President's Cup is dedicated to the Connie John Memorial Scholarship, which honors Connie's legacy and care for Kettering students. Connie John, who passed away in 1999, was the wife of President James E.A. John and a well known advocate for students. Proceeds from the Connie John Endowment are distributed between female and male students, giving due consideration to diversity among the student population. Last year's event event raised more than $50,000 toward the University's scholarship endowment.

"We like to say 'Come to the home of the Buick Open and play where Tiger wins'," said Rhonda Sullivan, director of Special Events and coordinator for the President's Cup tournament. "Our field is limited to 72 golfers, mostly Kettering/GMI alumni and our corporate friends. We work hard to make sure it's a competitive but enjoyable pace of play for everyone -- and in a gorgeous environment."

Tiger Woods won this year's Buick Open in early August, with a winning score of 271. He persevered to capture his fourth PGA tour title of 2002, finishing 17-under par.

The Second Annual President's Cup starts at 10:30 a.m. with a teaching clinic, hosted by Nick Berklich, Warwick Hills teaching professional. Registration and lunch start at 11:45 a.m. to open the event, followed by 18 holes of golf on the challenging course. The shotgun start is at 1 p.m. Cocktails and reception begin around 6 p.m., with dinner (jacket required) and awards at 6:30 p.m. A complimentary pair of FootJoy eComfort golf shoes is included.

Cost is $1,000 ($800 is a tax deductible donation) for individuals and $4,000 a foursome. Dinner is available at $100 a person. Checks are payable to Kettering University. Visa and Mastercard are accepted.

A registration deadline of Sept. 3 is requested. To register or for more information, contact Rhonda Sullivan, director of Special Events, at (810) 762-7434 or via e-mail at rsulliva@kettering.edu.

"Join us Sept. 16 where Tiger Woods won," Sullivan added. "It will be a great day."
