PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tuesday at THE PLAYERS gave two groups of Jacksonville area children the opportunity to play a miniature replica of the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass, the island green.
PwC, a proud partner of The PGA Tour, sponsored this fundraising event. Children from The First Tee, Jacksonville and The First Tee, St. Johns County marched into Stadium Village and cheered each other on.
Each child stood on a miniature tee box and attempted to hit a golf ball across the water and onto the small island green. For each ball that went in the water, PwC donated $25 to The First Tee. For each ball that landed on the green, $50 was donated, and for each ball that landed within a green circle drawn around the hole with the flag stick in it, PwC would donate $100.
PGA Tour players cheered on the children and The Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman was the Master of Ceremonies.
As of the writing of this story, the figure for the total donations made by PwC was not available.
