More than 20 teams gathered at Sienna Plantation Golf Club in Missouri City on Monday, April 8 for the UH Cullen College of Engineering 24th annual Golf Tournament. The yearly event, which raises money for academic programs and scholarships, was founded by mechanical engineering Professor Emeritus and tournament chair Larry Witte in 1989.

"Over the years, the tournament has raised about $250,000 of support for the College. Next year will be the 25th anniversary of the tournament, and we plan to recognize long-term corporate and individual participants in a special way," Witte said. 

The 2013 Dean's Cup winner, the team with the lowest net score, was Burns & McDonnell. Witte’s team won low gross. Jim Winter of Beyer Team Two won the longest drive award, and Jim Cartwright of the Klotz team won closest to the pin.
