The 13th annual Harvard Orthopedics Golf Tournament took place on Friday May 27th, 2011 at the Sandy Burr Golf Club in Wayland, Massachusetts. It was once again a huge success with 70 golfers enjoying the fantastic weather and great camaraderie. We couldn’t have asked for better weather with sunny skies and highs in the mid 80s.
The golf course was in excellent shape and the golfing was pretty good as well. The winning score (14-under par) was posted by Team DJD Medical (Lou Silva, Rob Oteri, Jed Prescott and Erich Halbower). Second place (10-under par) was locked up by Team Osteolysis (Dr. Harry Rubash, Dr. Kevin Raskin, Chris Cahill and Dr. Bill Sherman). Dr. McCarthy and several of the joints fellows took third (7-under par). There were two other teams within one stroke of making the top three demonstrating the excellent and competitive play.
I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this event, especially the generous attendings from our program who sponsored residents and fellows and made this event possible. I would also like to acknowledge Kate Robertson and Diane Sheehan who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that the tournament could go on without a hitch. Thanks to everyone who participated in this event this year. Keep your eyes open next spring for the announcement of the 14th annual Harvard Golf Tournament. It will be an event not to be missed.
A special thanks goes out to the following sponsors and supporters of the event:
