2013 Golf Tournament


The 14th Annual TIAA Charity Golf Tournament on September 9 raised more than $18,500 for two worthwhile charities: the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and The Senior Source. TI and the Texans Credit Union were underwriters for the tournament, making it possible for 100 percent of the donations to go directly to the charities.

For the second year, the Texins Association Annual Golf Tournament for active TIers, led by Casey Boswell, was combined with the TIAA Tournament. As a result, more than 60 golfers participated in the tournament at the Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie, TX.

Scott Wilson, Chairman of the Board for The Senior Source, spoke to Golfers at the beginning of the tournament and told them about the work of The Senior Source, including a major new program directed at Senior Security.

Courtney Miller, tournament co-chair, presented a check to representatives of The Senior Source. He expressed appreciation to all the golfers, individual and corporate donors, and volunteers who made the tournament a success. At the awards ceremony after the tournament, a representative from the JDRF was recognized, and the date of the Annual JDRF Run was announced. (See TIAA Newsletter for details.)

Three strokes separated the top two teams in the tournament. The team of active TIers: Dallas Webster, Tom Adkins, Jeff DeSerrano and Doyce Ramey (shown above from left to right) won top prize in the tournament. Other winners in the tournament include: Second Place Team: Kevin Koestner, Brad Woodson, Michael Hayden, and John Chapa; Third Place Team: Dan Murphree, Tom Boedecker, Jim Balaze, and Dale Campbell; Closest to the Hole: Jim Culver (#11) and Daniel Webster (#16); and Longest Drive: Philip Hamm (#8) and Robert Falcone (#18).

Our thanks the staff of the Woodbridge Golf Club for their excellent support of the tournament.
