2009 Predators Foundation Golf Tournament A Success
The Nashville Predators recently spent a day on the links at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin at the 12th Annual First Tennessee Dr. Mac Memorial Golf Tournament. The tournament - which was renamed in 2004 in honor of the late Dr. James McPherson, who served as the Predators' dentist from 1998-2004 - raised more than $50,000 for the Nashville Predators Foundation.
