Just last week my friends at Texas Golf ConneXion (TGC) announced the first in a series of Compete for Compassion (CFC) golf tournaments in 2013 designed to help raise thousands of dollars for children’s charities.
On the heels of that announcement, Roger “The Rocket” Clemens, who topped The Masters of the Mound leader board for 7 years, and his wife Debbie, have added their support to CFC and will compete in the $10,000 Two-Person Scramble.

Each accomplished players (Roger is a single digit handicapper who tied for ninth at the World Am Championships in Myrtle Beach last August; Debbie shoots regularly in the 80’s), the golfing couple see events like CFC as a vehicle to raise awareness and funds for the charities they support throughout Texas and the US.
“Contributing to sporting events that support children has been part of my Foundation’s work for over 20 years,” said Roger. “And so when Debbie and I heard about Compete for Compassion and the work they are doing to make a difference in kids’ lives, we knew we wanted to get involved and do what we could to help.”
I wish I lived in Texas so I could join Roger and Debbie in this FUNdraiser and try my hand at winning a few Skins. So if you are even close to that neck of the woods, you really should play on April 28th at High Meadow Ranch Golf Club. The registration deadline is April 22, 2013. Entry fees are $195 (plus taxes) per player.
Imagine stealing one from the Rocket himself. Now THAT would be worth the price of a airline ticket for me.
Hit ’til you’re happy Roger!
