Sage Lakes pros tee it up for charity

Sage Lakes Golf Course apprentice professionals Tyson Bowen and Ryan McQuary don’t need extra motivation to tee it up.

Give them a good cause to support and they’ll play all day.

As part of a Rocky Mountain Section PGA program, Bowen and McQuary will play 100 holes of golf Monday at Sage Lakes Golf Course to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Anyone interested in donating should call Sage Lakes at 612-8535, stop by the pro shop or visit http://www ers/tyson-bowen-ryan-mc quary/.

Bowen said most folks are pledging 25 cents a hole, but any donation is acceptable. The duo has already raised $1,400.

“It’s going to be fun and it’s for a great cause,” he said.

Bowen said shooting a good score over 100 holes isn’t his top priority, but he hopes to break 414, which would win a bet with a friend.

“Having that in mind will hopefully help keep me focused,” he said. “It’s tough to stay focused for 100 holes.”

Money raised through the RMSPGA program will help grant a wish for Whitman, a 13-year-old boy who is battling Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type III. His wish is to go sailing on a yacht.
