Canadian golf Olympian David Hearn will be making an appearance in Ottawa.
Hearn, currently 78th in the FedEx Cup Points race on the PGA TOUR, will be in the National Capital Region to support a charity close to his heart.
The former Web.com Tour winner who has won more than $7,000,000 on the PGA TOUR and will represent Canada at Rio de Janeiro, will be on hand at the Extendicare Assist Charity Golf Classic. It will be played at The Marshes Golf Club in Kanata on August 2. It is the fifth time the event has been played.
Hearn is the global ambassador for Extendicare; the logo of the company appears on his golf apparel.
Proceeds from this year’s Extendicare Assist Charity Golf Classic will benefit the Alzheimer Society of Canada – an organization with a goal of improving the quality the life and care given to those afflicted with Alzheimer’s.
Hearn’s own foundation, the David Hearn Foundation, benefits the same cause. His David Hearn Charity Golf Classic tournament, held July 25th (2016) at Brantford Golf & Country Club, raised some $140,000 that will go to local and national Alzheimer Society Chapters.
There is no word yet on whether there will be any public access to Hearn during the event at The Marshes. We will pass on that information if it becomes available.
