Tulsa, Okla. - For Brett Myers (BSBA '07, Management), the game of golf is more than a proud part of his TU years; it's a lifetime challenge. "You never figure it out," he said. "You can always get better; that's what I like about it."

He played pro for two years right out of TU and won the 2008 Oklahoma Open by five strokes before leaving the tour. Today, he puts his TU degree to work as a commercial loan analyst for Arvest.

To share his love of golf, Brett recently joined TU's Pioneer Program. He established a life insurance policy that one day will provide permanent endowment funding for The Brett and Charles Myers Men's Golf Scholarship. The scholarship also honors his dad, Charles Myers, a friend of TU and the person who sold Brett on the Pioneer Program opportunity.

"I hope the future Myers Men's Golf Scholars will honor the game and enjoy it the way I do," Brett said. "My advice to them is don't take your situation for granted, because it's an absolute privilege to play for this university, and your time at TU will be over before you know it."

Brett also wants his future beneficiaries to embrace the academic opportunities that are unique to TU. "The academic aspect of the TU education is huge. You can't go to any other school and get the 1-on-1 experience you do here," he said, adding, "All the seniors I graduated with were academic all-Americans and academic all-conference. Everybody had in excess of a 3.3 GPA for their whole four years here."

JOIN US! The Pioneer Program is an affordable way to make a long-term endowment gift. Life insurance policy proceeds will establish a permanent source of funding for TU. The best part is that you get to designate the use and the name of the fund - honoring the people, experiences or things that are special to you.
