Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson and comedian George Lopez headline the stars who will play in the second annual Mike Weir Charity Classic to be played prior to the RBC Canadian Open on Monday, July 19, at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto.
They will be joined by NHL players such as new Toronto Maple Leaf captain Dion Phaneuf, Steven Stamkos, Rick Nash, Martin Brodeur and Jon Montgomery and Entourage star Kevin Dillon.
Tom Cochrane will also be a part of the field as will former CFL quarterback Damon Allen. They will be joined by PGA Tour players such as Stephen Ames, Anthony Kim, Fred Couples, Luke Donald, Camilo Villegas, Paul Casey, Sean O’Hair and Retief Goosen.
Net proceeds from the event will go to the Mike Weir Foundation.
“I’m thrilled so many friends have agreed to come out and support my charity again this year,” said Weir.
“I’m grateful for the time these players and celebrities have taken out of their busy lives to come and support my foundation. Thanks to RBC and Golf Canada for helping realize my vision to raise more awareness and support for the various children’s programs we fund.”
