Marygrove Golf Coach Makes Cut at PGA Professional Championship

frank_mcauliffeMarygrove College golf head coach Frank McAuliffe, the 2010 Michigan PGA Professional of the Year, made the cut at this year’s PGA Professional National Championship Monday (June 23) at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Marygrove head coach is competing against a loaded field of golf pros from across the country as they vie for the championship, spots in upcoming 2014 PGA Tour events, and other prizes.

After shooting a one-over (73) in Sunday’s opening round, McAuliffe fought off a few rough holes to make the cut with a three-over round of 75 Monday. Sitting at +4 after two rounds, McAuliffe was able to make the cut to play out the final two rounds by sitting one stroke ahead of the cut line (+5).

McAuliffe started Monday’s second round on the 10th hole and birdied the (par-4)15th after opening with four consecutive pars. The birdie brought Marygrove’s golf pro to even thru 23 holes of play against some of the best PGA professionals the nation has to offer. A pair of double-bogeys pushed McAuliffe back to the cut line with seven holes to go before he sank a key birdie (par-5) on number eight to move four-over.

At the time of release, McAuliffe sat in a tie for 67th place thru 36 holes and was seven shots back of the leader. He was in a top-20 position earlier in the day after birdying the 15th.

Coverage of the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship can be found on the Golf Channel, powered by NBC Sports, Tuesday and Wednesday. Coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday with final round live look-ins beginning at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Marygrove College Faculty Member Publishes New Scholarly Book

Michael Martin and BookPlease join us in congratulating Dr. Michael Martin, assistant professor of English and co-director of the Nancy A. McDonough Geschke Writing Center, whose book, Literature and the Encounter with God in Post-Reformation England, has just been released by Ashgate Publishing in the UK.

In a review, literary scholar Gregory Kneidel from the University of Connecticut calls Michael’s book “a sophisticated and informative study” that is “bolstered by penetrating insights from medieval and postmodern religious thinkers.”

Kudos to our colleague for this achievement!

Relay for Life a Great Success!

We Can Be HeroesI wanted to thank the college community for helping to make the 2014 Relay for Life a great success! The Grovers were well represented at the event, we had a great team of students, faculty and staff. And this year our campsite won “Best Decorated!”

The totals as of today are $75,534.56 for the 2014 Detroit Relay, of which the Grovers raised $2,139.03.

We still have until the end of July to make contributions and the Quilt Raffle will continue until then.

I am so proud of this community and the generosity and compassion you extend to those who suffer and are in need! Thanks for those who walked during the day and in the wee hours of the night, for those who volunteered for an hour or all day, for those who supported us by donating to the luminaries, the Quilt Raffle or maybe you offered words of support and encouragement. You all are truly the heart of our institution!

Gratefully,
Jesse Cox
