2012 Charity Classic Co-Champions Return to Defend Title

 

WOONSOCKET, Rhode Island (May 8, 2013)
– Coming off an incredible win, 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans champion Billy Horschel has committed to play in the 15th anniversary of the CVS Caremark Charity Classic.  Set for June 23-25, at Rhode Island Country Club, the popular tournament
will also feature 2012 Charity Classic co-champions Morgan Pressel and Jay Haas as well as LPGA standout Annika Sorenstam.

 

The
first co-ed team to take home the CVS Caremark Charity Classic trophy,
Pressel and Haas return to defend their 2012 title.  Haas, a nine-time
PGA TOUR and 16-time Champions
Tour victor, also won the event in 2004 when he partnered with his son
Bill Haas. This will be Haas' seventh appearance in the Charity Classic
and the fifth for Pressel who holds two LPGA titles. 

 

Returning
for her second consecutive appearance is Sorenstam, a World Golf Hall
of Fame member and an eight-time Rolex Player of the Year. Sorenstam's
impressive career includes
89 total wins, including 72 LPGA victories, 10 of which are major
championships.  Horschel, who will be making his first appearance at the
CVS Caremark Charity Classic, has had an incredible year thus far,
posting five top-10 finishes including a tie for second
at the Shell Houston Open and a tie for third at the Valero Texas
open.  He is sure to be a crowd favorite.

 

The
CVS Caremark Charity Classic uniquely offers sports enthusiasts the
chance to enjoy world-class golf in a relaxed atmosphere while helping
to support hundreds of New England-area
charities. Tournament week begins with the Pepsi Pro-Am on Sunday, June
23, followed by the two-day tournament on Monday, June 24 –Tuesday,
June 25, at the Rhode Island Country Club.
