(THE COLONY, Texas) – Old American Golf Club – a pure golf experience from award-winning architect Tripp Davis and PGA TOUR player Justin Leonard – will host the 2014 Rod Pampling Classic charity golf tournament, Sept. 29.

Benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the shotgun tournament has a 1 p.m. start with registration at 11:30 a.m. Fellow professional golfers John Senden, Steven Bowditch, Nathan Green, Greg Chalmers, Todd Hamilton, James Nitties, Tag Riding and Carlos Ortiz are scheduled to join Pampling in the field.

A pre-tournament cocktail reception and live auction including special guest entertainment will be held from 6 – 10 p.m. on Sept. 28 at the Glass Cactus at the Gaylord Texan. Tickets are $100 per person.

Last year, the event raised more than $135,000 bringing the overall total of funds generated to more than $1 million.

“We’re honored to join Rod in helping raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,” says Mike McCabe, general manager of Old American. “This is a noble cause and we challenge area golfers to sign up and help cure and control this devastating disease.”

PGA TOUR veteran Pampling is a Dallas area resident and sports the Old American logo on his bag. He holds the Old American course record of 66.
