If all you’ve ever wanted is to play like a professional golfer – it might be better just playing with one first.
Olympia’s Andres Gonzales is offering that chance, for a sizable fee going to a good cause.
Gonzales, a Web.com member who has already clinched his PGA Tour card for 2013, has set Sept. 17 as the date for the second Andres Gonzales Charity Golf Tournament at Tacoma Country and Golf Club in Lakewood.
The former Capital High and UNLV standout has 10 other professionals playing in the one-day event, which is set up to raise money for The First Tee of South Puget Sound and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Included in the field is Luke List, the Web.com money leader and tour’s king in driving distance; touted rookie Hudson Swafford, out of the University of Georgia; and returners to the event in Nate Smith, Jim Renner and University Place’s Michael Putnam who were all on the PGA Tour last season.
Spots for five more teams (or 20 individuals) are open – with a cost of $3,500 per team, or $1,000 per individual for the round of golf, the in-between nine barbeque, breakfast and lunch, and tee prizes.
Tee times for the shotgun start is 11 a.m. on that Monday date. For details and to sign up as a player or sponsor, check out andresgonzalesgolf.com or contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
