PO’IPU – With Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson out of the pro-am on Monday, a group led by Michael Campbell took the top prize in the 23rd Grand Slam of Golf pro-am.
Campbell, along with Brent Krantz, Jack Kodesh, Jason Haruki, Paul Heathwood, Neal Gluckman, and Andrew Feldman shot a 120.6. Campbell’s 69 led the way.
But although Woods skipped the event due to a stomach virus, the individuals who were supposed to play with the world’s best golfer, received a signed PGA Grand Slam flag, as a nice gesture.
Kaua’i junior golfer Miki Ueoka came away with numerous prizes, which included a second-place trophy and a gift for the longest drive.
