As they gear up for the BMW Championship at Cog Hill, a few of the PGA Golfers had a chance to take to the track at Autobahn Countryclub. And having been there, we can officially say that quite of few of these guys aren ‘t half-bad on the track. But they all paled in comparison as Joey Hand took the wheel.
The other highlight? Getting a guided tour of Bobby Rahal ‘s personal Autobahn Garage/track house and car collection. But we ‘ll have more on that later.
Official Release: A group of PGA TOUR players including Rickie Fowler, Cameron Tringale, Sergio Garcia, Keegan Bradley, George McNeil and Mark Leishman, practiced a different type of driving as they competed against one another to raise money to benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation—one of the nation’s largest privately funded scholarship foundations. Led by Joey Hand, BMW American Le Mans Series race car driver, players had the opportunity to open up a cadre of BMW vehicles on the track, including the BMW M3 Coupe and Sedan, BMW X5 M, BMW X6 M, BMW 1 Series M and BMW 650i Convertible.
All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which provides full university tuition and housing grants to deserving young caddies.
Since 2007, the BMW Championship has raised more than $9 million for the Evans Scholars Foundation, one of the nation’s largest privately funded scholarship foundations.
