Drake Hosts Sixth Annual Golf Classic
The event provided a unique opportunity for Bulldog fans to enjoy a truly special afternoon of golf on one of Iowa's most exclusive courses. Golfers were greeted at their cars by members of the football team who helped carry and load clubs for the afternoon's round. Prior to teeing off, participants were treated to lunch and the opportunity to pick out exclusive equipment and apparel from Taylor Made and adidas.
"This is a tremendous event for Drake athletics and the Bulldog Club," Drake director of athletics Sandy Hatfield Clubb said. "It is one of our single biggest fundraisers and we can't thank those who participated enough along with Dennis Albaugh for hosting us on his course."
Once on the lush tee boxes and fairways of the Talons of Tuscany, the foursomes met various Drake coaches, student-athletes and staff members on each hole to help them navigate the challenging layout.
This year's individual winner of the coveted "Blue Jacket" for the lowest total round was Eric Boehlert. He also captained the winning foursome along with Jeff Boehlert, Brad Obermeier and Jack Pennington.
