D.A. Weibring

Golf Course Named for DA Weibring!

Good Morning everyone and thank you all for being with us on this very special day! As Illinois State University celebrates its 150th anniversary we reflect on our heritage and honor the people who help make Illinois State the great institution it is today.
  
DA Weibring is one of those people. Despite demands as a professional golfer, businessman, husband, and father, DA has consistently found time for his alma mater. With 25 installments of the DA Weibring Redbird Golf Classic, this heralded alumnus has helped raise over $1.5 million for Illinois State University Athletics!
 
As a professional golfer, DA won five PGA Tour events and four on the Champions Tour including one just a month ago at the 3M Championship in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
 
Although I am a relative newcomer to the game of golf I am a quick study and my short game is just one or two strokes behind DA’s and if he plays against me on number two, which is just 30 paces from my house, I’ll get him today! But I am smart and I am keeping my day job!
 
For 25 years DA Weibring has provided unfailing loyalty to Illinois State University, to Redbird Athletics, ISU Golf, and the Bloomington-Normal community. Few graduates have returned so much to a university. And now, with the naming of the Weibring Golf Club, we thank DA for his loyalty, dedication, and commitment. 
 
As our Director of Athletics, Dr. Sheahon Zenger, reveals the new signage, on behalf of Illinois State’s Board of Trustees, this course will be, from now on, known as the Weibring Golf Club at Illinois State University.
