The first round of the 2012 CVS Caremark Charity Classic will get underway on Monday morning with a fine group of 20 professionals at the Rhode Island Country Club.
The event is set up in a unique fashion. The 20 golfers will be divided up into 10 teams of two. Whichever partner has the better score on a given hole will use that number on the team scorecard.
Each player is competing in the name of a charity, and will donate their winnings to that group. In addition to the 36-hole tournament, there is also a Skins Game and a Long Drive Competition. The purse for the Skins game is $50,000, split between Monday and Tuesday.
