This is going to be fun...you can be sure of that.
Sixteen stars, four each from four major sports, will fight to the finish over two days at gorgeous Eagle Falls Golf Course, in Palm Springs, CA at the Team Challenge Charity Golf Competition.
The exciting event will take place on June 7, and June 8, 2008, and the teams are baseball, football, basketball and hockey.
The stars, as you can see from the partial list here, are some of the most exciting. And believe me, none of these guys is going to let his sport's team lose without a fight. And if you have a particular favorite among these sports, you don't want to see your team lose either, right?
Well, the great thing about the Team Challenge is that you don't have to sit back helplessly and watch. Through the use of new technology and social media innovations, fans (or ProCoaches and they're known) will be able to play a substantial part in team strategy and coaching decisions. On-line, and with your mobile devices you'll be able to help call the shots, literally. And there are some awesome prizes to be won!
I'll be telling you a lot more about the Team Challenge in the coming days along with the other golf bloggers providing special coverage for the event. I'm sure you know them as they're some of the best; Kristen Williams, Tony Korologos and Jay Flemma.
In the meantime, head on over to the Team Challenge site and register so you can be a ProCoach and get in on the action.
Oh, BTW, I have a feeling there'll be some exciting golf fashions out in Palm Springs too, as the stylish Charles Barkley is commissioner of the Challenge. I'll definitely keep you posted on all the haut couture hits... and the inevitable misses.
So stay tuned...we all have something to look forward to.
