THE PLAYERS Championship Hosts Celebrity Shootout

April 15th, 2011 · Leave a Comment

 THE PLAYERS Championship hosted a Celebrity Shootout this morning at THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. The competition took place on the famous 17th hole where each local celebrity had two chances to hit the green, and the player who was closest to the pin received a $5,000 donation to the charity of his or her choice. The shot was 137 yards, and the pin position mimicked that of Sunday’s final-round at THE PLAYERS.

NFL star Mark Brunell was today’s winner! Brunell’s closest shot was just over 13 feet from the pin, giving him the Celebrity Shootout title and $5,000 for his chosen charity, The Brunell Family Foundation.

Additional participants and their chosen charities included:

A great event for some very deserving causes! What a great way to create momentum leading into THE PLAYERS Championship!
