Annual golf tournament honors Jim English '64
RELEASED: August 9, 2007
"Jim has a deep background in golf—he was Sam Snead's accountant and rubbed elbows with many of the game's greats. He's hosted Michael Jordan and others at his home at Isleworth, as well as being instrumental in starting a Division I tournament at his club," Chafin says.
Centre's men's golf program moved up the Division III ranks last year from 151st to 29th, and the women went from being unranked to being ranked 50th in the nation.
