Cooper Golf PromoCALLING ALL DUFFERS –Organizers of Lake Superior State University’s Bud Cooper Memorial Golf Classic form up around a cutout of the venerable tournament’s namesake. For almost three decades, late athletic director Ronald “Bud” Cooper brokered benefit scrambles to benefit LSSU Athletics. The spirit stays alive at the Sault Ste. Marie Country Club August 4-5 with this year’s two-person scramble benefiting Laker men’s basketball. From left is LSSU Athletic Director David Paitson, Head Men’s Basketball Coach Steve Hettinga, Foundation Executive Director Tom Coates, President Rodney Hanley, and alum (and Bud’s son) Kevin Cooper, whose Sault dental practice is also a tourney sponsor. Tournament registration, sponsorship opportunities, and updates are here. (LSSU/John Shibley)
