The Tom Fitzgerald Golf Classic returns this year to Northdale Country Club on Aug. 26. All proceeds from this event go to the University of Tampa men's soccer program, in the hopes of providing a scholarship to a student-athlete each year.
The cost is $85 per player. The event will start by shotgun at 12:30 p.m. For information, call UT soccer coach Adrian Bush at (813) 323-3933.
