Wednesday, September 9, 2009 - 48 Legends Tour Professionals teed it up this week at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA. One in particular walked away with $20,000: Laurie Rinker. The only pro under par on a windy day near the Cape, Rinker fired a 68 on the Nicklaus Course to beat her nearest competitors by 4 shots. Rinker's amateur team of Sue Wright, Michael McCall and Mike Myers from Dawn Foods also helped her to a 1st place low net finish for the team prize.

On the Jones Course, three Legends shot 73 on their way to a three-way tie for first place. Colleen Walker, Nancy Scranton and Cindy Rarick had to settle for a share of the $10,000 prize money. Jan Stephenson's team of Bob Eddy, Andy Schopps and Rick Pickering from Nestle Waters claimed 1st place low net, winning her the $10,000 team pro prize.

The event raised nearly $1.6 million for the BJ's Charitable Foundation - over $6 million since the event started 9 years ago.
