Hilliard Lyons Tour Players Charity Golf Scramble To Benefit Paxton Park and Junior Golf Featuring Kenny Perry
and Russ Cochran.  To be held Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

2017 Hilliard Lyons Charity Scramble Entry Form

The Hilliard Lyons Tour Players Charity Event To Benefit Paxton Park and Junior Golf was started in 2002 and features PGA and Champions Tour Professionals Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry. This event was started to provide funds to help make necessary capital improvements to Paxton Park and all proceeds go into a special account which is used for that purpose, and beginning in 2007, a portion of the net proceeds also benefit Junior Golf, including local high school golf teams. It is a fun, 4 person scramble event that takes on the atmosphere of a reunion more than a golf tournament. It is a chance for people to watch Kenny and Russ play some golf and have some fun mixing it up with friends and fans alike.

We are very appreciative of Russ Cochran, Kenny Perry, Freddie Sanders and Mark Page for their efforts each year on behalf of this event. They have busy schedules and the fact they continue to come back and help this facility each year is huge and we deeply appreciate their help. 

In 2016 this event was held on September 29.  The date for 2017 has not been determined.

Special thanks goes out to Hilliard Lyons and the Housman Financial Group for their title sponsorship of this event.  We would also like to thank the following additional sponsors of this event:  Banks Market and Cash Saver Grocery, BFW Engineering & Testing Inc., Paducah Bank, Paducah Blueprint, UBS Financial Services, A & K Construction,  Fairhurst Realty, Pizza Inn, Denton & Keuler, Home Floor & Kitchens, Paducah Service Company, Premier Fire Extinguisher, Hilliard Lyons, US Bank, and Crounse Corp.
