Bring your better half to the new Frys.com pro-am golf event
There’s a new pro-am set for this fall’s Frys.com Open at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz., and it’s a lot different than anything we’ve seen at a PGA Tour event.
This is a couples event, so if your wife, husband or significant other plays golf, here’s a chance to do something nice together.
Proceeds from the pro-am will benefit the Fore Adoption Foundation, an organization created by PGA Tour golfer Kirk Triplett and his wife Cathi, to help bring together adoptable children in foster care with families willing and able to adopt a child. Kirk and Cathi have already committed to play in the event, as have another one of Scottsdale?s professional golf couples, Arron and Angie Oberholser.
The event will be held on Monday, Oct. 19 before the Frys.com Open, Oct. 21-25. It’s the first-ever couples pro-am to be played on the PGA Tour.
“The Fore Adoption Foundation is an organization that is near and dear to my heart, and I?m thankful that we will have the opportunity to showcase and benefit the Foundation during the Frys.com Open,” Triplett said.
The new pro-am was announced during recent sponsor golf outing that was attended by 2008 Frys.com Open champion Cameron Beckman. Triplett, Oberholser and Tom Pernice Jr. also attended the event, which was held at Grayhawk Golf Club?s Raptor Course.
The Fry?s & Friends Fore Adoption Pro-Am package will feature foursomes paired with one PGA Tour player. Women and couples are strongly encouraged to participate, although it is not required. The cost for a playing spot is $2,500 per couple or $1,500 for an individual. Each Pro-Am package also includes a participant gift package, 10 general admission tickets good any day and a VIP parking pass good all week.
