Early registration for the second annual Tip Murphy Memorial Golf Tournament is Aug. 13. The tournament will be Sept. 20 at the Oasis Golf Club in Loveland, Ohio.

Registration is available online, along with applications for the Tip Murphy Scholarship for Leadership Excellence, which the tournament is benefitting.

This scholarship has been set up by the Produce Marketing Association’s Foundation for Industry Talent, and the recipient will be able to choose from three PMA or PMA FIT events — the Leadership Symposium, PMA Foodservice Conference & Exposition or Fresh Summit — to which he or she will receive registration and hotel expenses.

The Tip Murphy Legacy Fund was created by Ready Pac, Chiquita, Paramount Citrus and Naturipe Farms.

Tip Murphy was in the produce industry for 15 years, including the PMA board of directors. He died on July 13, 2008, of a heart attack, and the scholarship was put in place that same year.
