AICUO President Champion of National Golf Tournament

We love to report on our members’ sports achievements — there have been two NCAA national team championships won this year by AICUO campuses — but we don’t often get to blow our own horns like this.

Now we know that calling this week’s National Association of Independent College State Executive golf outing at the Hershey Links Golf Course a “national golf tournament” is a bit of a stretch, but our President Todd Jones is surely champion of it. He shot a 2-under-par 70 to win the individual trophy in a 20-person field, and his team, playing in a “shamble” format in which players take the team’s two best balls off the tee and follow individually to the hole, won in the net competition. Todd even managed to dodge a wayward drive from former Boston Celtic and Detroit Piston star M.L. Carr.
