Several stars of golf's Champions Tour will tee it up today on Hilton Head Island as Wexford Plantation hosts the first Fellowship of Christian Athletes Golf Champions Tour Pro-Am.
Champions Tour golfers Andy Bean, Brad Bryant, Fred Funk, Morris Hatalsky, Larry Mize, Larry Nelson, Kenny Perry, Tom Pernice Jr., Loren Roberts and Scott Simpson are among the pros in the field.
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the FCA Golf Ministry and the South Coastal FCA organization. The event teed off on Sunday night with a pairings dinner and a silent auction.
There will be a Champions Tour professional in each of the tournament's 18 foursomes as they play the recently redesigned Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course at Wexford Plantation. The course recently hosted 17 college men's teams in the seventh annual Wexford Intercollegiate.
There will be a breakfast and range warm-up this morning before a 9:15 a.m. shotgun start. Prizes will be awarded at a post-round luncheon for closest-to-the-pin, longest drive and best score by team, as well as best overall score.
FCA is a nonprofit, interdenominational sports ministry focused on athletes and coaches from the youth to the professional level. The South Coastal FCA organization is involved in 28 middle and high schools in Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper counties.
