Celebrities took swings for a worthy cause at Pine Creek Golf Course on Tuesday for the second annual Christmas 4 Kids Golf Tournament.
The tournament, presented by Prevost, was hosted again this year by Bluegrass duo The Roys, made up of brother-sister band Lee and Elaine Roy. Celebrity golfers included American Idol favorite Bo Bice, country star Tracy Lawrence, Fox 17s Kelly Sutton and Nick Paranjape, NASCAR Driver TJ Bell, Brad Hopkins and Joe Dubin of 102.5 The Game, winners of Kenny Chesneys Next Big Star, Brother Trouble; former The Bachelorette contestant and country artist Ty Brown and more.
Bice said that he was amazed at the talent of amateurs on the course. When a fellow golfer told him that he was talented, too, Bice responded with a laugh Just not at golf.
