Playing With the Pros

Ever Since Bing Crosby's "Clambakes," pro-ams have allowed amateurs to compete with PGA stars
Robert Lowell
From the Print Edition:
Kevin Spacey, Jan/Feb 02

(continued from page 3)

The golf courses, the terrain and the weather combine to make the AT&T the most difficult of all pro-ams. But celebrities and corporate magnates keep coming back, more than willing to shell out the $7,500 entry fee should they wrangle an invitation to the tournament. They brave the wind, the rain and the difficult courses; they suffer the butterflies in the stomach and the shakes in the hand, because, after all, this is the most prestigious pro-am in the world.

 

Robert Lowell is a freelance writer based in New York.
