Geno Auriemma to Face CCMC Patients in Putt-Off

UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma is challenging patients at Connecticut Children's Medical Center to a “putt-off” this Wednesday to promote his annual charity golf tournament.

According to a statement released by the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, the event comes ahead of this year’s 12th annual “Fore the Kids” charity golf tournament in June. The tournament will benefit the hospital’s Orthopedics Technology Fund.

The putting challenge will take place in the One World Cafe on the first floor of the hospital at 11 a.m. Wednesday. Patients will compete against Auriemma to see who can sink a putt in the fewest strokes.
