BRISTOL, Va. (AP) — Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player individually remain big draws. Together they’re a mesmerizing trio on a golf course.
And still setting records, this time by harnessing their star power Tuesday to raise just over $15.1 million for charity. The fundraiser was called the “Big 3 for Mountain Mission Kids” and was the first public event at an exclusive Virginia club.
It’s the biggest single day in fundraising in PGA history. The money goes to the Mountain Mission School, an 89-year-old school for needy children.
Nicklaus says being able to set an all-time record is “very, very special.”
