Huge thank you to Sam Kouvaris, WJXT Sports Director, for representing Junior Achievement!

Fifteen local charitable organizations were invited by THE PLAYERS to participate. Community individuals including former Jacksonville Jaguar Tony Boselli, former PGA TOUR member Bob Duval and current Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles took a shot at the 17th green, with the ball landing closest to the pin in Round 1 winning $10,000 for the organization they represented. Winning organization of Round 2 receives $5,000.

Jacksonville Jaguars mascot, Jaxon de Ville, made a special appearance – and almost shot a hole in one!
