The Charity Carrousel 7th Annual Golf Tournament
We welcome Kris Tschetter to the Charity Carrousel Golf Family!
Join us on September 16th for a day of golf with Legends Tour Winner and LPGA Pro Champion Kris Tschetter. As honorary, Chairperson of the 7th Annual Charity Carrousel Golf Tournament, she will not only teach the 8:15 am Pro Golf Clinic, before the shotgun, but will interact with each team on the golf course and take photos. We are in for a smashing Good Time!
Kris Tschetter was raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She graduated from Texas Christian University in 1987 and joined the LPGA tour in 1988. Kris and Billy Andrade teamed up to win the JC Penney Mixed Team Classic in 1991 and Kris won the Northgate Computer Classic in 1992. She finished 2nd in two majors, the 1996 U.S. Open to Annika Sorenstam and the 1997 Nabisco Dinah Shore to Betsy King. Kris has earned nearly $3 million dollars in prize money in her career and her 8 under par, 29, still stands as a British open 9-hole record.
