Stephanie Tuthill avatar.Rocky Mountain Region: Stephanie “Longdriver” Tuthill

Her favorite golfer is Jack Nicklaus, who is from her hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Stephanie, a Regent from Colorado, doesn’t want to let Colorado or her favorite golfer down. After all, Jack won his first major championship, the 1959 U.S. Amateur, at The Broadmoor, a property Fellows know and love.

Help Stephanie keep up Jack’s legacy by supporting her today!

James Lamm avatar.Great Lakes Region: “Slammin” Jim Lamm

Minnesota’s own “Slammin” Jim, a star in the Great Lakes Region, finds his inspiration in the legendary former world #1 golfer Tom Lehman. Just like Tom at Pebble Beach in 2015 (pictured above), Jim is seeking to finish with back-to-back birdies in rounds 3-4 to finish in first place and etch his own name into ACTEC golfing history. As Jim pursues a historic victory, like Tom at the 1996 Open Championship, it’s the support of Fellows like you that will drive him to the top.

Kevin Matz avatar.Mid-Atlantic Region: “Mr. 202352018” Kevin Matz

Kevin, like his favorite golfer and four-time NBA Champion, Steph Curry, is a multifaceted individual. Just as Steph excels not only on the basketball court and golf, but also in philanthropy, Kevin navigates both the CTA and philanthropic endeavors with finesse. While Steph Curry supports the Howard University golf team, Kevin exemplifies a commitment to excellence both in their respective fields and in giving back to their communities.

Steve “Titan” Trytten is swinging for the Longest Drive! Representing California and the Western Region, Steve wants to make a massive, come from behind, victory like his golf hero Collin Murikowa’s 2020 PGA Championship where Morikawa shot six under par, to secure a win in his home state of California. Western Region Fellows, help drive this Titan to a come from behind win!

Help Steve come from behind with your donation to The ACTEC Foundation!
