The Washington Capitals are holding their annual charity golf tournament, the Caps Care Classic, today, at the Springfield Golf and Country Club in Springfield, Va. The event, which began at 1pm with a shotgun start, includes an online auction (already underway at WashingtonCaps.com) and a dinner after the golf tournament. It benefits the Children’s National Medical Center, Athletes Against Autism and Washington Capitals Charities. Click the pic for a larger view. image
update 4:46pm, from the Caps PR department,
Those of you who have seen the photo of Alex Ovechkin practicing his golf swing will probably be surprised to hear this, but Ovechkin just hit a hole in one during the Caps Care Classic at the Springfield Golf and Country Club in Springfield, Va. Ovechkin took a shot on the par-3, 160-yard fourth hole that landed short of the green and rolled in. In fairness, Ovechkin had been practicing at that hole for some time, meeting each group as it came through. But a hole in one is a hole in one.
