First Annual Seaside Rotary Golf Classic

On October 26, 2013, Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside will host their first annual Charity Golf Tournament, The Rotary Seaside Golf Classic, at the Grand Coral Golf Course.Grand Coral Fairway Shot 2

All event proceeds will support Seaside Rotary projects that benefit disadvantaged youth and families in Playa del Carmen. Rotary sponsored initiatives such as The KKIS Project have helped hundreds of at risk children by providing much needed and expensive school supplies and providing ongoing English language support in the classrooms.

The tournament will begin at 8:00am, followed by a Gala Prize ceremony, luncheon and raffle. Proceeds from the event will benefit Seaside Rotary Chapter ongoing programs and initiatives including KKiS – Keeping Kids in School. The tournament organizing committee has been hard at work collecting prize donations for the winning foursomes and we are pretty excited about what we will be able to offer, especially considering this is our first event. The next task is providing prizes for the winners of the longest putt, longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin contests as well as raffle prizes. We are hoping that no golfer goes home empty handed!

Deutsche Bank Championship Final Day

sergioSERGIO Garcia swooped for an eagle at the final hole on Saturday to seize the second-round lead at the US PGA Tour’s $8 million Deutsche Bank Championship. Tee times for the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship were moved up to between 8 and 10 a.m. ET to account for bad weather in the forecast. It’s just as well for Garcia, who won’t have enough time to think about trying to hold onto his two-stroke lead and hold off Henrik Stenson,henrick or anyone else within a handful of shots. Garcia also does better with 6 hours of sleep rather than all day. “I kind of feel a little bit — not more tired, but you get the yawns going for some reason,” he said. Playing for the fifth straight week, it’s a wonder Garcia isn’t already worn out. He has skipped this event in the past because he has needed a break in his schedule. This time he almost couldn’t afford one. At 55th in the FedExCup standings coming into the week, Garcia thought it wasn’t unrealistic that 16 guys could pass him and he would be left watching the rest of the Playoffs from his couch (in reality, his position for the next event was likely secure). Sometimes it’s better when the decision is made for you. Garcia shot a 6-under 65 Sunday and is 19 under through 54 holes at TPC Boston, where he made seven birdies and just one bogey in the third round. “Sometimes my best is quite good,” Garcia said Sunday night. “Sometimes it’s not that good.” Sometimes it’s great. It needed to be here after overnight and morning rains softened TPC Boston even further. Officials put lift, clean and place into play for the third round and the course played nearly three strokes under par. Garcia, meanwhile, is trying to get over an ill-advised joke that went wrong at a European Tour dinner earlier this year. He hasn’t finished in the top 20 since and the moment has weighed on him heavily, despite having profusely apologized for it. Finally it appears he’s ready to let his golf do the talking. “The summer has been tough,” Garcia admitted. “But I’m trying hard to keep going, to keep doing the right things. “It’s been a good learning experience. I think that you always have to try to take the positives out of all those things and learn from your mistakes. And hopefully make you a better player, a better person.” Not many have played better than Garcia’s closest pursuer, Stenson. The Swede has finished in the top 3 three times in his last four starts, which includes runner-up finishes at The Open Championship and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. What hasn’t he done? Win. He put himself into position to change that (again) with a 66 Sunday. But that wasn’t even close to the best score of the day and it likely won’t get it done on Monday. “You have to keep making birdies if you want to have anything to do with this tournament,” Stenson said. Like Garcia, Stenson has battled his own demons, though his were strictly inside the ropes. “Getting back into playing good golf again has been more a long-term process,” he said. “Working on things long-term rather than going for quick fix. “I’m not a hundred percent where I want to be, but it’s definitely good enough to play some really good golf.” Which is what it will take for Stenson, Garcia or anyone else on the leaderboard. It has  been a sea of red so far.
