Thanks to you our 2017 Chip In For Kids Charity Golf Tournament at the Farmers Insurance Open was a huge success!

Thirty two foursomes made a remarkable showing by helping us raise over $90,000 to further our mission: providing positive after-school programs & summer activities to develop the education, health, self-esteem & character of the over 10,000 youth we serve annually. Held on Sunday, Jan. 29, the day turned out to be one that will remain in our hearts and minds as one of the best days ever! With a new North Course, amazing Torrey Pines ocean views, a swanky VIP tent and the PGA tournament a buzz with excitement, The 75 degree weather and oh so slight breeze enabled a golf experience of a lifetime!

Congratulations to HP sponsored foursome: Bill Avey, Shane Wall, Steve Smith & Phil Soper for coming out on top of a 3 way tie at 114. (Ultimately decided by a back 9 cardoff).

Pat Lenihan, Mike Hoeck, Rod Evans & Hack Adams were right on their tail by one stroke while Latham & Watkins Craig Garner, Kevin Reyes, Jon Klassen & Lionel Deschamps rounded out the tiebreaker.
