Pampling Charity Golf Classic Raises Over $140,000 for Cystic Fibrosis

Keary Turner, Mike Rawls, Chad Campbell, Kim Greaves and Rick Gilmartin joined forces for a great cause!

Old American Golf Club and other local PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour professionals gathered Sept. 29 for a great cause. The Rod Pampling Charity Classic raised more than $140,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Former British Open champions, and North Texas residents, Justin Leonard (Dallas) and Todd Hamilton (Westlake), 2014 Valspar Championship winner John Senden, 2014 Valero Texas Open champion Steven Bowditch and other pros, including Chad Campbell (Colleyville), all played golf and took part in the events.

Now in its 12th year, the Rod Pampling Charity Classic has generated more than $1 million for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Tournament Director Dave Andersen, who lived in the same community as Pampling and has a daughter with the debilitating disease, asked the Tour player to help with the cause nine years ago.

Pampling, who will have PGA TOUR status next season and showcase the Old American logo on his bag, hit shots for every group at the par-3 sixth hole. Pampling and his fellow pros raved about Old American’s strategic layout, shot values, and the overall experience. 

Old American General Manager Mike McCabe was thrilled the club was an integral part of such a wonderful event that benefitted a noble cause. “We’re honored Rod and Dave chose Old American as the site of this year’s Rod Pampling Charity Classic,” McCabe says. “This event enabled people from around the country to visit our course for the first time and see it in action as a tournament venue while also raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.”

A pre-tournament cocktail reception and live auction took place Sept. 28 at the Cactus Glass at the Gaylord Texan Hotel with local television personality John Rhadigan as emcee. Items up for bid included a dove hunt for 10 with Pampling, a golf getaway for four to The Players Club at TPC Sawgrass, and a “ski with an Olympian” package. An auction to play with a TOUR pro in the tournament alone raised $34,000.
