Minnesota PGA golf pros will be teaming up with Special Olympics Minnesota

event has a shot-gun start at 9 a.m.; a luncheon at noon; and new this

year, a private golf clinic offered by the pros to all participating

golfers at 1:30 p.m.

    "This is a great opportunity for Special Olympics Minnesota athletes to

show just how talented they truly are and what the game of golf means to

them," said Jay Meyerhoff, PGA member and Medina assistant golf

professional. "This is another example of how the Minnesota PGA is involved

in the community. It is about helping the athletes and Special Olympics

Minnesota. This is a great partnership that's going to last a long time."

Dave Dorn, Special Olympics Minnesota president. "It is very validating for

our athletes to be involved with professionals in this way, and we look
