The CVS Caremark Charity Classic is now underway at Rhode Island Country Club.
Co-hosted by Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade, the two-day tournament is Rhode Island’s largest charitable sporting event and hosts some of the best PGA and LPGA professional golfers in the world.
During the last 13 years, the CVS Caremark Charity Classic has raised $14 million for charities around the region, providing vital funding for a variety of critical programs serving children, families and people in transition throughout Southeastern New England.
Rickie Fowler was originally supposed to participate but withdrew due to a minor knee injury he suffered at the U.S. Open. David Toms, who recently won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, has taken Fowler’s place and will partner with Camilo Villegas. It’s Toms’ eighth appearance in this event; in 2009, he and partner Nick Price won the tournament.
“We’re sorry Rickie won’t be able to join us at this year’s CVS Caremark Charity Classic,” said co-hosts Faxon and Andrade. “We’re thrilled that 2009 co-champion David Toms was able to join us and are confident he will bring lots of enthusiasm and excitement to the event.”
