It is the first inaugural golf classic for the Ohio State University Muskingum County Alumni Club.

Diosi says there are a lot of OSU alumni in the area, who still support their Alma Mater.

“Buckeyes. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye, ” says OSU alumnus Pete Johnson.

Johnson was one of a few OSU celebrities who were invited to attend the event. He played seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and two seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

Another big name who attended was former OSU Football Coach John Cooper.

Participants took to the golf course and had a challenge when they hit hole number eight…see if you can get the ball closer to the hole than Pete Johnson, and Johnson was ready for them.

“I’m going to be here on hole eight taking everybody’s money, ” says Johnson.

Those who did get past Johnson though won a prize. AAA and the OSU Muskingum County Alumni Club are hoping to continue the event in the future.
