Now that the American Century #Golf Championship is Over...What's Next? #ACCgolf

Mark RypienWhen the pressure was on, Mark Rypien quietly emerged as victor of the American Century Golf Championship. No real fanfare, just an NFL quarterback quietly holding off a golf legend and a field of well-known celebrities with a dynamic back-nine.

Ho-hum...an eagle on 16 and birdies on 17 and 18 to win...yes, Rypien basically put on a clinic or, as Roger Maltbie declared, “That’s big league, in any league. That’s tremendous even for Tiger or Phil to do something like that. That is more than impressive.”

Now that the 25th ACC has come to a close and the celebrities are moving on to the Reno-Tahoe Open, the question remains, what's next for the Stower's Institute for Medical Research? Still committed to finding hope for life, uncovering causes and treatments for gene-based diseases.

Diseases don't wait a year before they strike...

It's heartening to know that more than forty percent of American Century Investments’ profits are distributed to the Institute...Profits with a Purpose:


Here is just one of the very important scientific discoveries recently associated with the Stowers Institute and BioMed Valley Discoveries:

Biologists at UC San Diego find cells that they call the “missing link”? Ribosomes! This discovery will not only force a revision of basic textbooks on molecular biology, but also provide scientists with a better understanding of how to limit uncontrolled cell growth, such as cancer, that might be regulated by controlling the output of ribosomes.

So, next time you're thinking that a celebrity golf tournament is just a bunch of famous people looking to improve their game while yucking it up with the crowd, think again. The money that is made as a result of the hi-jinks helps the greater good in more ways than we can possibly imagine.
