DAP Championship benefits the LeBron James Family Foundation

DAP Championship golf tournament benefits LJFF

BEACHWOOD, OHIO - More than 100 golfers will swing at a chance to win their PGA tour card at the Canterbury Golf Club. But the real winner at the DAP Championship is the LeBron James Family Foundation.

Canterbury has a great tradition of hosting some of the top golf tournaments for quite some time, and this year is no different.

Each year, golfers from around the world put their game shoes on, in hopes of earning their PGA tour card. Pro golfer Bobby Wyatt has been on the green since he was two years old and says it take a lot of practice and patience to earn that card.

Wyatt said, "Every day is not going to go the way you want it, but you have to find a way to make those bad days ok and play well on your good days."

Each year Canterbury raises funds for a foundation through the DAP Championship game. This year's recipient it's the LeBron James Family Foundation, according to Ron Rice, president of RPM International.

Rice says they believe it’s a winning combination for the foundation and Canterbury to collaborate.

The tournament has already raised $40,000 for the LeBron James Family Foundation and these golfers have been practicing all week to get their swing just right for the first round on Thursday.
