Local PGA TOUR pro attracts big names for first charity tournament

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Marc Leishman may not be from Hampton Roads, but he’s certainly one who cares for the Virginia Beach community, as evidence by his first annual Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament which raises funds for his foundation “Begin Again.”

The tournament brought in faces familiar to Hampton Roads, such as New York Mets third baseman David Wright (Chesapeake), former major league star Michael Cuddyer (Chesapeake), and Pro Football Hall of Fame-r Bruce Smith (Norfolk).

It’s also attracted Grammy Award-winner Joe Don Rooney, lead guitarist for Rascal Flatts, and the number one-ranked player on the PGA Tour, Jason Day. MORE
