The #CactusCrew’s Day Off
Ah, the rare off-day during Spring Training. Yesterday was the only one for the Crew this spring and many of the players marked the occasion by heading out to the golf course as there were two different golf events that were held.
The first was Bob Uecker’s inaugural Front Row Classic, which was held at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale.
A number of the Brewers players and coaches, along with several other celebrities participated in the event, which benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Here’s a slideshow!
Over on the Minor League side, a group took part in an event at Tres Rios Golf Course in Goodyear, benefiting the Special Olympics of Phoenix.
Each foursome was comprised of three folks from the Brewers (including scouts, front office staff and players) and one Special Olympic golfer and they played best ball. The theme this year was “Cowboy Golf ” and every golfer had to wear something that would depict the cowboy lifestyle (with a penalty of four strokes per team if a player had no cowboy gear on his person–but no boots, bad for greens!).
Participants included: Gord Ash, Mike Guerrero, Michael Reed, Jose Nunez, David Goforth, Drew Gagnon, Taylor Jungmann, Brooks Hall and scouts Andy Pratt and Ryan Thompson.
In the end, first, second, last place, long drives, closest to pens all donated their winnings to Special Olympics. To go with the $2000 donation check, they also gave a little over a $1000 more in cash. The scramble winners shot 8 under.
