Limited Team Spots Left For Shaq/Jones Golf

BATON ROUGE – A very limited number of team spots on both the morning and afternoon waves are still available as the Shaquille O’Neal/Coach Johnny Jones golf tournament heads toward a sell-out for the event scheduled for Sept. 16 at Carter Plantation.

All proceeds for the event will be donated to the area flood relief efforts.

The event, presented by Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital has an entry fee of $1,000 per team or entries can still be taken at $250 per golfer. Also there are a few spots remaining for hole sponsorships at $500.

This is the first year O’Neal and Jones have teamed up to host the event together. Both have held golf tournaments to benefit local projects in the past with this tournament taking the date for O’Neal’s previous golf event that has annually been scheduled the day before the first Southeastern Conference LSU home game.

There will be two tee times with the morning group going off at 8:00 a.m., followed by the afternoon flight at 1:30 p.m.
