Country singers Morgan Wallen and Vince Gill participated in a charity golf outing on Tuesday, May 3 in Tennessee.
The event, which took place at the Grove Golf Course in College Grove, raised money for the Snedeker Foundation, an organization founded by 2012 FedExCup champion and nine-time PGA Tour winner, Brandt Snedeker, and his wife Mandy, raises funds in support of a variety of social and athletic charities in Middle Tennessee.
One of the beneficiaries of the Snedeker Foundation is OurKids, which “provides expert medical evaluations and crisis counseling services in response to concerns of child sexual abuse while also working to increase community awareness, education and training about child maltreatment,” according to the foundation’s page on the Simmons Bank Open’s official website.
The Simmons Bank Open posted a photo of Wallen and Gill on the golf course to their Instagram account, writing, What would a golf tournament in Tennessee be without a little country music! Today we had a member of the @officialcmhof, @vincegillofficial, and the hottest country music star on the 🌎 in @morganwallen in the Sneds & Friends Pro-Am.”
A second photo posted by the Simmons Bank Open showed Wallen on the course mid-swing. The “Don’t Think Jesus” singer sported a teal golf shirt, gray shorts, white Nike sneakers, gloves, a Masters hat, and blue sunglasses. Wallen teamed up with Scott Stallings, a golf pro, who’s also from East Tennessee, Brent Clements, Brent Long, and Middle Tennessee Men’s Golf to win the foundation’s pro-am event, according to Instagram.
“No sand in his golf shoes,” Simmons Bank Open captioned the post, referencing Wallen’s chart-topping hit, “Sand In My Boots.”
Wallen and his team of winners were photographed for a plaque celebrating their victory. Wallen also autographed the plaque.
In a video shared by the Korn Ferry Tour, Wallen practiced a few swings prior to the event. In a second clip, he discussed golfing.
“How often would you say you golf?” someone asked Wallen off-camera.
“Far too much to be this bad,” the country singer responded.
The “Don’t Think Jesus” singer also shared his “touch” is what makes him incredible at golf.
In addition, Wallen shared that he knows professional golfer, John Augenstein and that they golf at the same course in Nashville. “I’m rooting for him,” Wallen said.
Gill also appeared in photos from the event, wearing a red shirt and dark navy blue shorts.
“A huge thank you to everyone who came out for the @simmonsbankopen Sneds & Friends Pro-Am to benefit the @snedsfoundation!,” Snedeker wrote on social media following the event. “I assure you that your support will make a difference in the lives of children in middle Tennessee!,” he later added.
Wallen is currently performing on his Dangerous tour in support of his record-breaking album of the same name. Additionally, he recently revealed that he will be releasing two new songs this month, including the fan-favorite previously teased tune “You Proof,” as well as “Thought You Should Know,” which serves a tribute to his mother Lesli.
Meanwhile, Gill is set to go on tour this summer and recently announced that he’d be performing a four-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium from August 4 to 7. Tickets for the four-night Ryman residency go on sale this Friday, May 6.
