Friends, family and fraternity brothers of OSU PGM student, Scott Harman who passed away last year, gathered to remember Scott and enjoy a beautiful day playing golf in his memory. Scott loved the game and this outing was a fitting way to kick-off fundraising for the Scott Harman Memorial PGM Student Scholarship. The event was organized by fellow PGM student and TKE brother, Logan Braun, and Alex Kemper, TKE brother, who were aided by Scott's parents, Jeanne and Mark, and Scott's brother, John.
The 19 teams teed-off for an 18-hole scramble at Worthington Hills Country Club under a cloudless blue sky, with nearly perfect course conditions. Said head professional, Brian Sparks, who was Scott's supervisor while he worked at the club as a PGM intern, "Scott must be looking out for us today. He is surely smiling and would have approved of this event." In addition to the 76 players, nearly 70 others attended the awards reception.
Jeanne Harman made everyone's day when she announced that over $11,000 had been raised for the scholarship endowment. Her goal is to raise at least $50,000 so the scholarship will be in place forever at Ohio State.
In the end, a team captained by Scott's best friend, Ronnie Stump, prevailed by shooting a 12-under par, 59. Second place went to Jeanne Harman's team, which included Logan Braun and his parents. In third place was the OSU PGM team of Aaron Dumke, Evan Hartnett, Alex Kaufman and Ryan McMillen. John Harman won longest putt made on the 18th hole.
