Players compete and raise money on Brazilian beach

Defending champion Catriona Matthew, Brazilians Angela Park and Mariana de Biase, and Duramed FUTURES Tour member Maria Laura Elvira were joined by Brazilian soap opera star Rodrigo Lombardi for a golf competition with local youth at Barra Beach near Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday. The players and Passione, a member at Itanhanga Golf Club, competed with children in a closest to the pin competition. The event also served as an opportunity for the tournament to donate money to Campea Desafio Golfe na Praia, a local organization that teaches golf to young Brazilians. The second-annual HSBC LPGA Brasil Cup 2010 tees off on Saturday at Itanhanga Golf Club.
