Once again members of the Champions Tour paid their visit to a Seattle Seahawks' preseason practice session to compete in a closest-to-the-pin contest. In what has now become an annual affair, Bobby Clampett and Steve Jones took in the practice session and later participated in a friendly competition on a different type of green.

Clampett and Jones were joined by three members of the Seahawks -- wide receiver Golden Tate, quarterback Matt Flynn and kicker Steve Hauschka. Each Seahawks player was given three shots at a flag 80 yards away, while Clampett and Jones had just one chance. When the competition was over, Flynn was an impressive winner, chipping to just 1 foot, 7 inches from the flag. Clampett finished second at 6 feet, 2 inches, followed by Tate (8 feet, 8 inches), Hauschka (21 feet) and Jones (21 feet, 8 inches).
