A Unique and Impressive Accomplishment
From the “Who Knew?” desk of the UChicago Alumni Club
Past Chicago Alumni Club President Ira Goldberg, MBA'91, placed 7th in the worldwide Turkish Airlines World Cup Golf Amateur Series held at the Cornelia Golf Club in Belek, Turkey. Ira qualified by winning the qualifying round at the Dubsdread Course at Cog Hill Golf Club in suburban Chicago last summer. You can read about his accomplishment here.
And in a remarkable coincidence, as Ira told us, "I met an alum from Karachi, Raheel Aleem, AB’08. He placed second and I placed seventh to make U of C the top University at the event. Pretty amazing, and fun." Ira also thought it would be fun for us to put together an Alumni Club program that would delve into the mysteries of physics of golf. So look for a special program along those lines in the upcoming program year.
