The Tug McGraw Foundation Announces 3rd Annual Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am

Tug McGraw

The Tug McGraw Foundation will hold its 3rd Annual “Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am” on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the Nashville Gun Club in Nashville, Tennessee. Sponsored by Tarver Land Development, the event will benefit the Tug McGraw Foundation and its efforts to improve the lives of military service members who have been affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

The Tug McGraw Foundation “Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am” will feature an exciting lineup of celebrities from both the music and professional sporting clay communities, all vying for a chance to be crowned champions. Several of country music’s hottest stars have signed on including Brantley Gilbert, Andy Griggs, The Warren Brothers, Chris Janson, Craig Campbell, Deano Brown, Heidi Newfield, Ira Dean, Keith Anderson, Lance Miller, Kristy Lee Cook, Rhett Atkins, Colt Ford, Troy Gentry, Daryle Singletary, Matt Bailie, and the LoCash Cowboys. In addition, ESPN analyst John Kruk, Mike Fisher of the NHL Nashville Predators, and Headline Country host Storme Warren have also signed up to participate.

Heading up the professional contingent for the event are 2011 National Sporting Clays Champion Bill McGuire, Maximum Archery’s Andy Ross, Aaron and Steve Gould of the Gould Brothers Exhibition Shooting, along with Josh Richmond and Mark Weeks from the United States Army Exhibition Team.

The event will be a sporting clay competition between 20 teams consisting of four amateurs, one professional, and a music celebrity. Unlike trap or skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, sporting clay competitions simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry, offering a greater variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.

The teams will make their way through the award-winning 20-station sporting clay course at the Nashville Gun Club. Following the competition there will be a lunch featuring Mickey Roos Texas BBQ and silent auction with items including wine, dining, travel and sports & music memorabilia.
