University of Michigan Department of Emergency Medicine Victorious over Wayne State University and Retains the Chairman’s Cup!

The 7th Annual Chairman’s Cup Golf Championship was played on June 4, 2019 between the Emergency Departments of Wayne State University and the University of Michigan.  This tradition was born from the friendship of the two current chairman, Dr. Robert Neumar (UM) and Dr. Brian O’Neil (WSU).  The match is a “Ryder Cup” type format with each team consisting of five two-man teams competing in a best ball, match play format, with no handicaps, for the highly coveted Chairman’s Cup. 

The scoring for this year’s Chairman’s Cup finished with the University of Michigan defending the Cup by a margin of 3-1-1, which marks the 6th time that the University of Michigan Emergency Department has won the cup!

The winning team consisted of:  Attending Physicians: Robert Neumar, Bill Barsan, Jim Pribble, Nate Haas, Michael Roebuck and Resident Physicians: Ryan Tsuchida, George Magnone and John Joseph.

Next year’s competition will be hosted by Wayne State on June 2, 2020.  Anyone interested in joining next year’s team, please contact Drs. Pribble, Haas or Tsuchida.

Go Blue!!
