COLUMBUS, Ohio – The family of Gene Rogers has donated a clock to the Ohio State University Golf Club in honor of the longtime club member and World War II veteran. The hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind clock designed specifically for the OSU Golf Club will stand 15 feet tall and span three feet wide on the LED-illuminated face, erected along the path for all golfers to pass as they make their way to both the Scarlet and Gray Course Hole 1 tee boxes.
The beautiful new addition will be unveiled on July 4 at 10:30 a.m. ET during an official dedication ceremony open to the public.
Rogers passed away at the age of 92 on January 15, 2016. He received two Bronze Stars for his military service in Europe and North Africa.
