IU, Golf Channel celebrities headline Children's Clinic Golf Classic

ANDERSON — After the Children’s Clinic Celebrity Benefit and Pairings Party Monday evening at Anderson Country Club kicked off two days of fundraising for the St. John’s Children’s Clinic, the event’s finale will tee off today with the Children’s Clinic Golf Classic, featuring teams of five golfers, pairing locals and celebrities alike.

Groups of four local citizens who either signed up together or were paired after registration will play 18 holes at Anderson Country Club to benefit the Children’s Clinic. Each group, 31 in all, are slated to be paired with both local and national celebrities, including former Pacers star Slick Leonard, IU athletics announcer Don Fischer, former IU football player George Taliaferro and former Butler basketball player Rotnei Clark.

The groups will tee off at Anderson Country Club at noon today in a Florida Scramble format and play a best-ball tournament. The top-three teams after the round will each win a gift card to use in the pro shop.

Randy Titus, who manages marketing and community affairs at St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital and who has been a part of 26 of the 29 Golf Classics, said the event has always thrived because of phenomenal local support.

“Some people have played in our tournament probably every year,” Titus said. “They’re familiar faces, we see them every year, and they’re very gracious to come every time.”

Titus said that over the last few years, the fundraising abilities have begun to grow from the help of Brian Hammons, one of the original announcers on the Golf Channel and a current play-by-play host for the Champions Tour and PGA Tour.

Even after leaving the area, Titus said Hammons wanted to get involved in the community. Recently, Hammons has brought some of his colleagues from the Golf Channel to the event to help increase the excitement, and the fundraising efforts have followed.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.
