IMGA November News

Kevin McCarthy, new IMGA vice president

New Vice President

Kevin McCarthy has graciously agreed to step up and assume the responsibilities of vice president for Ironwood Men’s Golf Association (IMGA). Kevin grew up in Michigan, and after graduating with an accounting degree from the University of Wyoming, Laramie, he went to work for what ultimately would become Cooper Standard. He enjoyed a successful career of 22 years with Cooper, ultimately overseeing North American Estimating. He and Jan, his wife of 34 years, are happy to be in Sun Lakes and close to his old boss and friend Dan Smith. Dan has actually been a personal witness to both of Kevin’s holes-in-one, the latest one being on number 10 at Ironwood! Thank you, Kevin, for being willing to volunteer your time and talents for the benefit of IMGA!

Danny Smith, Tournament Director

Danny has spent many hours transitioning IMGA to Golf Genius and has trained not only IMGA members but also people from other clubs. Thank you, Danny! At this point in time, IMGA will not be using Live Scoring.

Lloyd Schaeffer, Treasurer

Lloyd reported that the league is in good shape financially. Thanks for “counting the beans,” Lloyd!
