The 38th Annual Herb McGuire PCI Golf Tournament welcomed approximately 65 Centre athletes and other College supporters on Saturday, May 16, for a daylong benefit in support of the Praying Colonels Fund. Held at the Danville Country Club, the invitational is the largest single fundraising event for Centre’s athletic and recreation programs, directly supporting the College’s 600 student-athletes. This year’s tournament raised $30,000 for the fund, with alumni and friends traveling from as far as Florida to compete in the invitational.

Centre alumnus and NCAA Division III Men’s Golf Individual National Champion Chris Morris ’11 repeated his tournament play, earning the Low Gross Champion title for the second year in a row.
