Pebble Beach, CA -- They’ve achieved success on the field and on the gridiron, but a group of current and former players and staff members for the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers competed for charity on Tuesday in the fourth annual Chevron Shoot-Out at Pebble Beach. The event helped kick off the festivities at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
The 12 players were competing for $100,000 in charity to be donated to the Giants Community Fund and the 49ers Foundation as well as other local charities.
The Giants were represented by Matt Cain, Ryan Vogelsong, Javier Lopez, J.T. Snow, Rob Nen and broadcaster Dave Flemming, while the 49ers representatives included Brent Jones, Dwight Clark, Harris Barton, Steve Bono, former quarterback Alex Smith, now of the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team’s designated “ringer” Matt Bettencourt.
“The first thing is, it's great because it's for charity and we get up to a hundred thousand dollars for various charities,” said former Giants’ first baseman J.T. Snow. “I had the pleasure last year to play with Ryan Vogelsong, and we ended up winning on a chip off on 18, because it's an all-tie carry over. We won $60,000 on the last hole for a women's shelter here in Monterey. So, it's fun. We're all going to hit some good shots, some bad shots and have some laughs. But, most importantly, it's all about raising money for the different charities”.
Former San Francisco 49ers tackle Harris Barton, who has been a regular at this event, echoed Snow’s sentiments. “Look at the great fan support we get out here on a Tuesday afternoon. You get members of the Giants to come down here in the off season and play in this. It’s great but the more important thing is it’s all for charity. Pro athletes sometimes get a bad name, but most of these guys are great guys and they're out here for charity.”
The Giants Community Fund won a total of $30,000, while the 49ers Foundation won a total of $20,000. The results are below.
Format: Alternate-shot, five holes. Each hole worth $10,000 for 49ers/Giants and $10,000 for twosome’s designated charity ($20,000 total)
