Shelton Quarles Celebrity Pro-Am kicks off Transitions Championship at Innisbrook

PALM HARBOR – In a few days, Innisbrook will be full of golf fans as the Transitions Championship gets underway. But on Monday, things were relatively quiet.

About 30 pros were on the putting green or driving range, and most of them were playing in the Shelton Quarles Celebrity Pro-Am. Some familiar names include Lee Janzen, Rocco Mediate and Palm Harbor's John Huston.

There were also several local sports figures playing, including Rays pitchers James Shields and Jeff Niemann, Bucs head coach Raheem Morris and Bucs GM Mark Dominik, and former Bucs Derrick Brooks, Mike Alstott and Anthony McFarland.

Admission is free today, and the tournament should last until about 5:30 p.m.

Crowd favorite John Daly was scheduled to play in the pro-am but had to withdraw because he was playing in the final round of the rain delayed Puerto Rico Open. It was the first cut Daly has made this season.
