New York Jets back-up Quarterback, Tim Tebow hosted his second annual “Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic” on April 14th on the world-famous TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra, Florida.
It’s amazing to see what you can do when people come together and how many people help and what you can achieve. And I feel through this weekend we’ll be able to affect thousands of kids lives and that’s so exciting and so motivating. Hopefully a lot of people come out and support it and at the same time inspire a lot of people. – Tim Tebow
Its not uncommon for Quarterbacks in the National Football League to wear two gloves during practice or a game but it’s not typical to see someone wearing two gloves while playing golf. Tim Tebow is not your typical golfer. Not only does Tebow swing a golf club with two gloves, he also signs autographs with two gloves.
A wide variety of celebrity partipants attended including Seattle Seahawk running back and Florida State Alum, Leon Washington, former Jacksonville Jaguar running back and Universitiy of Florida Alum, Fred Taylor, Minnesota Vikings Quarterback and Florida State Alum, Christian Ponder and University of Flordia head coach, Will Muschamp to name a few.
Tim Tebow is a great human being. He’s able to be a lot of successful people together. For one reason, to help some people who are in the dark right now. Help bring some love, some hope and some light. I love children. I am a big supporter of anything we can to minimalize any suffering for children in the world. That’s why I’m here. – Fred Durst, Limp Bizkit
He’s a great kid, a great athlete, a bright future. So when he called and wanted me to be involved, yeah, man, yeah, because he stands for what’s right in this country. – Deon Sanders, 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee
During the Tim Tebow Foundation Gala there was an unexpected and emotional moment shared between Tebow and the 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson. Watson gave Tebow a special gift from Augusta National. VIDEO
At Augusta they give you a player badge and I left it unopened to give to him because it happened to be player badge number 15. – Bubba Watson
