Sewickley, PA (PRWEB) June 09, 2012
Tailgate Golf’s Putt & Chip Contest was played to raise money at PGA Touring Pro Rocco Mediate’s Celebrity Charity Golf Tournament For the Love of the Game. The event took place near Rocco’s hometown in Western Pennsylvania at the Sewickley Heights Golf Course on June 5, 2012. The event raised thousands of dollars to benefit several charities that focus on providing help to less fortunate children.
Tailgate Golf’s Putt & Chip Contest combines their award winning golf games that are based on popular leisure sport games cornhole and shuffleboard with golf. Each golfer received 6 shots, 3 chips and 3 putts with scoring similar to their respective counterpart games for a chance to win a top of the line, custom Scotty Cameron Putter.
Children, golfers, and celebrities alike all lined up to play the Putt & Chip Contest sponsored by Tailgate Golf. Players were encouraged to make a contribution to Rocco’s charities and for a chance to win a Scotty Cameron Putter. At the end of the one day event, everyone had a lot of fun chipping and putting, and the charities received a sizeable donation from Tailgate Golf.
Current and former Pittsburgh Steelers greats like Ben Roethlisberger, Lynn Swann, L.C. Greenwood, Louis Lipps as well as the Stanley Cup winning head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins Dan Bylsma and many others lined up to play.
“Everyone had a blast playing the Tailgate Golf Putt & Chip Contest,” offered Rocco Mediate. “Most importantly, we raised money and awareness for important charities and that is what this event is all about.”
