The day is highlighted by a celebrity golf tournament followed by a free golf clinic. The tournament will have a shotgun start at 8 am. PGA tourning pros Peter Jacobsen and DA Webring will conduct a free clinic starting at 1:30 pm. The clinic is open to the public, including people who do not participate in the celebrity golf tournament.

The tournament is currently sold out. For those who are pre-registered, check-in and breakfast will begin at 7 am. Teams will consist of four players plus a celebrity player. Among the celebrities expected to participate are Country Music superstar Vince Gill, former Tennessee Titans tight end Frank Wychek, former Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton, and several current Predators players.

Parkinson's is a devastating disease that strikes more people than Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Lou Gehrig's Disease combined. There is no cure for Parkinson's disease... but there is hope. Your support at this golf tournament will go a long way to helping us "Ease the Bruden and Find the Cure." If you are interested in making a donation to the cause, please call the American Parkinson Diseason Association at (615) 269-5312.

The Brent Peterson Celebrity Golf Classic is seperate from the Nashville Predators Foundation Annual Golf Tournament, which will be held the following week (Thu., Sept. 18) at Hermitage Golf Course. Foursomes are still available for the Predators Foundation Annual Golf Tournament (click here for more information or call 615-770-2315).
