Golf for a Cure Classic

For anyone who is in the Bethesda, MD area please check out and participate in this wonderful event dedicated to cancer research. Here is the press release for this event as well as a few pictures.

Golfers Band Together to Cure Cancer
National Foundation for Cancer Research holds annual golf charity tournament

The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) will hold its 6th Annual Golf for a Cure Classic on Monday, September 14th to support its many scientists across the country in their quest to find a cure for cancer. The fundraiser will be held at the Kenwood Golf and Country Club in Bethesda. Last year, the event brought over 100 people together, including politicians, scientists, sponsors, and donors from around the world.

Golf for a Cure has quickly become a popular event for the health charity, as it provides sponsors the ability to donate to a good cause and promote their businesses through cause marketing, a growing choice for self-promotion. Additionally, attendees can spend the day enjoying the sport and networking with other business leaders.

Proceeds from Golf for a Cure go towards supporting NFCR cancer researchers and scientists who receive funding for research efforts. The fundraiser also supports the dissemination of public education materials on the prevention and treatment of cancer. This year’s tournament will be sponsored by Calmark, Inc., with other significant sponsorships from Tech Catalyst and McCormick & Schmick’s. A full list of sponsors can be found at www.GolfforaCure.org.

In the Foundation’s 36 years, it has provided over $260 million in support of cancer prevention and treatment explorations. These discoveries better the lives and prognoses of cancer patients, and will continue to be pursued until there is a cure for all types of cancer.

Cool iPhone App - TigerTrax

I love my iPhone and anything to make me love it even more is cool with me. The golf world has been getting more and more into new apps for smart phones which allows fans to keep up with their favorite players while they are out on the golf course. Well, that is usually where I am if I am not in front of my computer or TV. The TigerTrax app is AWESOME and allows fans to follow Tiger throughout all of his rounds and gives a break down of how he did hole by hole as well as how he did in each tournament.

Adding shot tracker would be a nice touch, but this app has everything you need to keep track of Tiger and his quest to break Jack’s record. Oh yeah...there is a page on the app for that too. You can download the app from the iTunes store and follow TigerTraxApp on Twitter


Can someone make me a Paula Creamer app?! Pleaseeeeee! One for Rory McIlroy would be good too. ;)
