Golf fans flock to Shoal Creek for Celebrity Pro-Am

Celebrity Pro Am

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Gus Malzhan, Bo Jackson, Condoleezza Rice and Nick Saban may not be pros, but they drew quite the crowd at Shoal Creek Golf Club as fans watched them tee off for the Regions Tradition Celebrity Pro-Am.

All of the amateurs were playing along side pros like Tom Lehman and Fred Couples.

Many fans hit the green in hopes of getting autographs on everything from footballs to baseballs and fans. If they were lucky, the players stopped to sign everything from Regions Tradition fans, to football helmets and baseballs.

Crimson Tide Head Football Coach Nick Saban was scheduled to tee off at 2 p.m. but several rain delays ultimately resulted in a cancellation of hte Pro-Am.
