About the Celebrity Players Tour

A note from Walter Ray,
Here is a link to one article I found on the golf tournament. I guess Marshall forgot that I had about an 8 foot putt for birdie, but I was still glad to see his putt fall in. The interviewer obviously misunderstood me when I mentioned the length of my putt. But after Marshall made my putt, mine didn't matter as it was a best score for each hole from one of the three players and the best I could do was tie Marshall.

It was a team effort as Andy had 3 birdies on the last nine, I had a birdie and Marshall made the final birdie to shoot 5 under on the last 9 holes. Marshall, Andy and I also had lone pars on one hole each. It was a lot of fun and since we finished about 6 groups ahead of the final group we were just hoping to post a good score. I am planning on playing in the celebrity golf tournament being held at Camp LeJeune near Jacksonville, NC from September 29th to October 2nd.

The Celebrity Players Tour (CPT) is a corporate hospitality and entertainment golf tour, providing a competitive format for athletes, entertainers and other celebrities in an arena that differs from the field in which they actually became famous. Tour events are held at top golf course venues and feature high-profile celebrity athletes and entertainers from today and yesteryear, while providing millions of dollars for charity and a setting to entertain corporate guests who participate in the pro-ams and gala parties.
