Golfing With The Vinny

Gallery members at the sixth annual Vinny will be in good humor watching more than 20 professional golfers and five professional comedians (six, if you count Vince Gill) who are scheduled to play in the August 3rd & 4th tourney at the Golf Club of Tennessee. In the Pro-Celebrity format event, the golf professionals will compete for a $65,000 purse on August 3rd, and on August 4th the celebrities continue on with amateur foursomes to compete for team honors. As always, Vince is excited about being in the company with such a professional lineup that includes Mark Brooks, Bob Estes, Brad Fabel, Skip Kendall, Mark McCumber, Tom Pultzer, Larry Rinker, Loren Roberts, Kris Tschetter and Lanny Wadkins. “Every time I’m around these players I get a new appreciation for their talents, especially around the greens,” says Vince. “The players in this year’s Vinny will give the golf fans that come out on Monday something to talk about. To borrow a phrase from the PGA Tour, ’These guys are good.'” Other celebrities scheduled to play include Kix Brooks, Glen Campbell, Suzy Bogguss, Mark Collie, Amy Grant, Gary Chapman, Chely Wright and Seinfield’s Barney Martin. More than 50 stars from the golf and entertainment worlds are slated to play. For ticket information about the Vinny, call 615-790-7755.
