Lester & Hawkins enjoy the 56th annual Western Michigan University alumni golf outing

ADA, Mich, -- Alumni from Western Michigan University made their way to Egypt Valley Country Club in Ada on Monday morning to take part in the 56th annual alumni golf outing. Right there with them were Bronco head football coach Tim Lester and men's basketball coach Steve Hawkins.

"This has always been one of my favorite days of the year," Hawkins said. "You get here, and it's one of the largest alumni golf outings in the state for any university. You get to see our fans and our alums in a setting that isn't competitive, and we can actually have fun. Normally, you see them at our games, but I'm usually busy that day, so to see them in this setting, get a chance to visit, it's a great day."

Last year, Coach Lester participated in the golf outing by hitting some shots but didn't actually play in a group.

"I'm playing," Lester laughed. "I'm playing 18 holes, and I'm excited. I love golf. Sometimes it's a 'Beat the Coach' thing when I'm here, but I'm fired up."
