Wednesday (8/22), Pro-Am Day at The Northern Trust, was also a special day for multiple Special Olympics golfers. The whole afternoon was set aside to allow the athletes to experience the Ridgewood Country Club clubhouse, practice on the range and tee off to play a few holes. Of course, the obligatory 1st Tee photo was taken and later on, during the evening reception handed to the players and their families. The tournament's Player Transportation committee helped, as usual, with shuttling the golfers and families between the hotel and the clubhouse.
