'The Rivalry' to pair top NCAA, pro talent
By Ron Balicki, Golfweek
Uniting college golf past with college golf present. That’s what “The Rivalry” plans to do when it debuts Nov. 16-18, 2012, at a course to be named in Southern California.
The brainchild of Pacific University men’s coach Brandon Goethals, the event will bring together some of professional golf’s shining stars and current college players.
The tournament will be a two-man-team pro-am with a distinctive college flare. Each of the 24 participating pros will represent his alma mater and be paired with one of the top players on that school’s golf team.
