Welcome, golfers — and fans, sponsors and TV crews.
Welcome back to Naples for the Shark Shootout that starts with pro-am action today (Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2009) at Tiburon Golf Club in North Naples.
For the 21st year overall and ninth year in Naples, golfing great Greg Norman hosts his off-season exhibition that has raised more than $11 million for charities led by children’s cancer research. This year the field of 24 golfers will compete for a purse of $3 million. Fans can watch in person or on the Golf Channel on Friday afternoon and NBC Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
For ticket information, call 1-888-66-SHARK or 254-9770; or visit thesharkshootout.com, Alf’s Golf Shop in Uptown Center on Immokalee Road or the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort’s Golf Shop at Tiburon.
May everyone have a good time, good weather and long, straight drives down the fairways.
