A field of 144 budding golf stars of the Web.com Tour takes to the rolling fairways of TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm for the 2012 Neediest Kids Championship, which rewards top finishers with a total prize purse of $600,000. In addition, a good showing in the tournament propels golfers up the Web.com rankings, taking them closer to a coveted spot on the PGA Tour, the prize bestowed on the circuit's top 25 finishers at year's end. As golfers attempt to steer their drives away from thickets of tall fescue grasses and towards bentgrass greens, spectators can roam the sides of the course freely, watching the field as they pass through one particular hole or walking alongside their favorite player or the caddy with the brightest socks from the first tee box to the 18th green. The VIP ticket package grants guests an opportunity to watch the drama unfold from above the 18th green, where they enjoy the shelter of a tent, a lunch buffet, and afternoon hors d'oeuvres. In addition, VIPs can imitate the whooshing swings, practiced putts, and no-look bunker shots of their favorite players with an 18-hole round at one of nine Montgomery County courses.
Founded in 1972, Neediest Kids strives to provide low-income youths in area school districts with basic needs—such as clothing, school supplies, and food—as well as educational opportunities. Hosted by former University of Maryland men's basketball coach Gary Williams and honorary chairman Fred Funk—a long-time PGA Tour and Champions League stalwart—the Neediest Kids Championship gives its proceeds to benefit the charity of the same name.
