We welcomed Rob Pritts to the show to help raise awareness for a great event which will raise money for Alabama tornado relief. Back 9 Promotions is sponsoring the Alabama Golf Marathon Monday, June 20.
PGA great, and current Champions Tour player Larry Nelson was in Alabama for an event, and after witnessing the extensive damage across the state decided to help any way he could. Nelson and Pritts arranged this event to take place at Limestone Springs Golf Club, which is the #3 ranked course in the state of Alabama by Golf Digest. Larry Nelson will start the day by teaching a golf clinic for all in attendance, then everybody will tee off starting at 7:30 am. The goal is to play as many holes as possible before the sun sets, FOR FREE. All participants are asked to raise $1 per hole from friends, family, etc. Participants will play anywhere from 18-72 holes throughout the day. They currently have players signed up to participate from all over the country, but have plenty of tee times still available.
Bridgestone has also teamed up for the event, adding the “Bridgestone Golf ball Marathon” to the day. Every participant will receive 1 yellow Bridgestone B330 ball and compete to see who can play the longest before losing it.
