The Tau Alpha Upsilon Alumni Society held its 10th Annual TAU Golf Challenge at Hamlet Wind Watch Golf Club in Hauppauge, N.Y., on July 19. Many brothers arrived by mid-morning for an early bagel and lox at the home of Larry Hollander '78. Close to 40 TAU alumni -- with some active brothers -- participated in the actual golf outing, and a few others also attended the dinner reception. Hollander won the event for the second year in a row, and took home the TAU Bowl of Sportsmanship (lowest net score). Marty Dvorkin '75 was the net runner-up. The low gross score of the day was shot by David Ramos '87, with the second-place finish going to Brian Schechter '87. The Team Net trophy went to the foursome of John Walker '78, Hollander, Elliot Weiss '77 and Dan Polhamus '00. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Paul Starick '91 and Brett Fiden '88, with Dvorkin having the longest drive of the day. TAU brothers donated close to $1,500 for the Terrence "Tex" Haran Memorial TAU Scholarship Fund, bringing the principal total to well more than $30,000.
