Hospice of the Valley’s 19th annual Pro Am Golf Tournament presented by Cigna Healthcare of Arizona was held April 13 at Grayhawk’s Raptor Course. It was a fun, productive and meaningful day out on the course to raise crucial funds for Hospice of the Valley’s programs and services. The tournament began with a shotgun start and ended with an exciting pro playoff, awards ceremony and reception. The tournament boasted a $10,000 professional purse and this year, showcased 21 pros from the Southwest Section of the PGA, along with 84 amateur golfers.
This was the 19th year that Jay Hoselton has organized the tournament, raising a grand total of $781,000 for Hospice of the Valley ($32,791 this year). The first-place amateur foursome was Risas Dental & Braces. The first-place pro was Marty Jertson, who beat RW Eaks in a sudden death playoff that went two holes. Both professionals managed to shoot a 4 under par 68.
