“Champions Tour member Jay Haas and PGA Tour members Bill Haas and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey are among the pro golfers scheduled to be at the private DeBordieu Club in Georgetown for the second annual DeBordieu Club Celebrity Pro-Am on Nov. 7-8. The tournament will benefit the S.C. Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, is sponsored by Adams Golf and is not open to spectators.
The event will feature up to 30 teams comprised of four golfers along with a touring pro, celebrity or local PGA club professional. Others scheduled to participate include former New York Yankee Bobby Richardson, Coastal Carolina football coach David Bennett, Nationwide Tour pro Tommy Biershenk, eGolf Tour pro Jay Haas Jr., and 2010 RE/MAX Senior World Long Drive champion Bobby Wilson.
Former PGA Tour pro and current rules official Dillard Pruitt is also committed to the event. Pruitt is the brother-in-law of Jay Haas, who is married to his sister, Jan. In 2008 Pruitt’s wife, Fran, lost a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis at the age of 46.
The event has a Texas Scramble format in which the best drive of the fivesome is selected and each player completes the hole with his own ball from that spot. The team’s best two individual net scores per hole will count.
For an entry fee of $1,000 per four-person team, players receive a tournament gift bag, on-course lunch and beverages, a practice round, two tournament rounds, eight tickets to both the auction pairings party and awards ceremony, and clinics by Wilson and Gainey.
Tickets for the awards and pairings events, including dinner and open bar, are $100 and may be available after Oct. 15. Sponsorships are also available. Visit www.DebordieuClub.com or call the pro shop at 843-527-6000.”
