- One of the first grouping caddies told Lydia Ko that she couldn’t put a dent in the green if she jumped up and down.

- Some young boys who participated in the morning’s Alll Kids Can Three Hole Challenge were very excited to see Keegan Bradley wearing some Jordan spikes.

Today was a perfect day to spend on a golf course in New England. More specifically, it was pristine conditions to watch the pros play some best ball at the Rhode Island Country Club.
Today marked the 21st annual CVS Health Charity Classic event. It was once again hosted by Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade. Each team consists of three players: one PGA tour, one Champion tour, and one LPGA tour. The team score comes from the two best scores for each hole, in other words a double best ball.
While this should make for some crazy low scores, the pin placements were giving players fits all afternoon. While they were consistently putting for birdie, they were also consistently two-putting.
In the end the final grouping of Keegan Bradley, Brooke Henderson and Billy Andrade held on to win their third tournament in a row. They colllectively finished the day at -15 while the runners up, Kevin Kusner, Lexi Thompson and Darren Clarke, finished at -14.
Besides some pictures to whet your appetite enough to attend next year’s tournament, here are some fun inside the ropes comments and activity to enjoy.
