O’Meara To Be Honored at Ouimet Banquet

Mark O’Meara, one of the few golfers to win the Masters and the British Open in the same year, will be the headline honoree at the 2012 Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund annual banquet slated for Monday, May 7, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place.

O’Meara, a top PGA Tour player from the mid-1980s through the 1990s, won his lone two majors in 1998, the year he was named PGA Player of the Year.  He is also well known as a friend and confidante of Tiger Woods.

The Ouimet Dinner draws between 1500 and 2000 annually, making it the largest one-night golf banquet in the country. It has been rumored, but not confirmed, that Arnold Palmer, a former Ouimet Fund honoree for his distinguished lifetime service to the game, will be the first repeat honoree for the 2013 event, which will mark the 100th anniversary of Francis Ouimet’s stunning victory at the U.S. Open at The Country Club. The Brookline club will host he 2013 United States Amateur.

Sponsorship and ticket opportunities for this year’s banquet are available by contacting the Ouimet Fund’s offices at 774-430-9090.
