Jim Mills Golf Tournament

We lost a good friend, but his legend lives on. Join us in this charity fundraiser at Mudd's hometown. On the first Saturday of August each year, Benson Golf Club hosts the Jim Mills Memorial Golf Tournament.

Jim Mills graduated from Benson High School in 1977 and was a four-year high school athlete. He attended St. Cloud State University and entered the medical field. Jim died in a tragic automobile accident on April 3, 2003. This annual golf tournament honors his legacy.
