SMI News - PGA Tour Star and Richmond Native, John Rollins, directs significant contribution to local VCU Massey Cancer Center

VCU Massey Cancer Center

John Rollins, Richmond's own PGA TOUR star who played his college golf at Virginia Commonwealth University, recently took advantage of an opportunity to give back to a most worthwhile entity affiliated with VCU: The Massey Cancer Center. Through a marketing program of the PGA TOUR, The Crestor Challenge, players can designate beneficiaries for contributions based upon set criteria for performance.

In September at the 2005 Deutsche Bank Championship, John shot a sizzling 28 on the back nine for a final score of 63 in the third round to vault into 1st place going into the final round. Based upon that outstanding performance, John had the opportunity to control a $10,000.00 donation to the charity of his choice - he selected The Massey Cancer Center.

John noted: "It is truly rewarding to be able to help such a wonderful cause through playing the game I love. Thanks to the PGA TOUR and Crestor for creating and supporting such an innovative vehicle for the players to recognize charities important to them."
