The third TWU Faculty and Staff Golf Scramble took place on July 10 this summer, with participants from a variety of TWU departments. The Golf Scramble consisted of five teams with four players each.
Supervisor of Recreational Sports Gabriel Cruz said in an email: “In a scramble, everyone tees off and then afterwards the team picks the best ball out of the group and then they all get one shot from that spot and so on until they make their ball for that hole.” The players competed for individual prizes: a golf ball retriever for closest to the pin and a box of Titleist ProV1x golf balls for the longest drive.
Assistant Director of the Fitness and Recreation Center Karrie Fletcher said: “I’m just excited to have an event where people from different departments can participate in a fun activity and get out of the office.”
The winning team was Kwon 3D. The members, — Jemin Kim, Ki Hoon Han, Jae Kim, and Donghun Shin, — each won a Bluetooth portable speaker. The team is named for Director of the Biomechanics Laboratory at the Kinesiology Department Dr. Young-Hoo Kwon. Kwon’s research includes golf swing motion analysis, golf driving techniques, and the transfer of weight in golf swing styles based on swing plane. Three of the members on the winning team are PhD students in the Biomechanics Program.
TWU Title IX Investigator Tawny Alonzo said: “This is one of my favorite times of the year it gives us a chance to get out of the office and enjoy a friendly competition with faculty and staff.”
