The second annual Mike Weir Charity Classic kicked off tournament week at the RBC Canadian Open with amateur golfers pairing up with marquee celebrities from the music, sport and entertainment industries as well as top stars on the PGA TOUR. Amateur competitors played nine holes with a PGA TOUR pro and nine holes with a celebrity. The team of Retief Goosen and Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jon Montgomery combined with the amateur team from Southwest Sun for a team net best ball score of 55.
Fans flocked to St. George’s to see notable stars such as actor and director Samuel L. Jackson, Entourage star Kevin Dillon, NHL’ers Steven Stamkos, Dion Phaneuf and Martin Brodeur as well PGA TOUR stars Stephen Ames, Paul Casey, Camilo Villegas and host Mike Weir. Following the Pro-Am, Montgomery brought the room alive at St. George’s as auctioneer during a live auction that raised $117,500. In all, $350,000 was raised for the event’s national charity beneficiary — the Mike Weir Foundation.
