Materials Invitational Golf Tournament

A great time was had by all at the inaugural Materials Invitational Golf Tournament, co-sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Section of ACerS and the PSU Department of Materials Science and Engineering, on Monday, May 13, 2019, at the Penn State Blue Course.

Participants enjoyed a morning of networking and collegiality among ACerS members and all friends of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The event was a best ball, shotgun start tournament, with foursomes organized to spread the talent (or lack thereof!) around.
