The BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation is a week of golf, celebrities, parties and pros offering spectator tickets, amateur playing spots, sponsorships and more.
It is the only tournament on the Nationwide Tour where amateurs and celebrities are grouped with Nationwide Tour professionals in a four-day better-ball competition over three courses. The 2012 tournament will take place May 16-19 at Thornblade Club (Greer, SC), The Carolina Country Club (Spartanburg, SC) and The Reserve at Lake Keowee (Sunset, SC).
Amateurs, celebrities and pros rotate between three courses on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the 14 lowest scoring pro-amateur/pro-celebrity teams advancing to play Sunday's final round at Thornblade Club. Celebrities play once at each course on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Professional winner of the overall 72-hole event will take home $108,000 from the total purse of $600,000. Amateurs and celebrities compete for individual prizes and cash donations to the charity of their choice out of the beneficiaries selected by South Carolina Charities, Inc.
Past celebrities include Kevin Costner, Kurt Russell, Catherine Bell, Joe Pesci, Luke Wilson, Dennis Quaid, John Elway, Wayne Gretzky, George Lopez and Gary Player, among many others. Celebrities play once at each course. The 2012 celebrity lineup will be announced in April.
