"It's a great event, one we normally have at the beginning of the tournament on Monday afternoon. We've got a great turnout too, looks like 150 kids or so, so that's our biggest ever--and when I say kids, we've got maybe 30 college students here, probably in addition to 150 little ones. We try to do it from three years old all the way up to college age. It's part of the Nationwide Tour, as you can see there's about 20 of those pros out here helping us. You've also got the Women's Golf team, and somewhere around here are the guys too. It's just a great, fun event."
We also spoke with Shane Todd of Chick-Fil-A Beechwood, the head sponsor of the event:
"This particular event is great because obviously, it gets kids involved. So Thursday through Sunday is the golf tournament for the golf fans, but here we get to focus on kids age three all the way up through high school. Chick-Fil-A is proud to be a part of that."
Be sure to check out the Stadion Classic, as it's not every day a Nationwide event winds up in a small town like Athens! And you also might get to see a Georgia player or two out there! All the info you need is here.
