Four teams of two (one current LPGA player, one LPGA Legends Tour player) competed at TwinEagles Golf Club in Naples, Fla., site of last week’s CME Group Titleholders.
For their efforts, Lewis and King received $50,000 to donate to two charities of their choice: the Scoliosis Research Foundation and Golf Fore Africa.
“I knew Betsy could still play,” Lewis said, according to an LPGA release. “I was surprised with how far she could still hit it and she hit it really well and putts with the magic putter. I knew we’d team up well together.”
