Scott McCarron to Hold Clinic at RMCC

Three time PGA Tour Winner and RMCC Icon, Scott McCarron will be conducting a golf clinic at the Country Club Driving Range on April 22nd at 5PM. The event will also feature a fashion show, raffle and live entertainment afterwards on our Main Terrace. All RMCC Members, the entire community and the general public are welcome with no admission charge. Food & beverage will be available for purchase.

Scott McCarron returned to golf in 1991 after being inspired at Rancho Murieta Country Club during the Raley’s Senior Gold Rush. He turned that inspiration into many hours of play and practice on the fairways and greens of Rancho Murieta Country Club.

After nearly winning the US Mid Amateur in 1991, McCarron turned Professional and successfully passed through the pressure cooker known as Q-School to gain his PGA Tour Status. He has never looked back. Scotty has retained his Tour Card for 17 consecutive seasons in a sport that offers no guaranteed contracts.

Mr. McCarron has won three times on Tour and has competed successfully in several major championships and has played in six Masters. Further, Scott has won the Shark Shoot Out three times with partners Brad Faxon and Bruce Leitzke.

In August 1999, McCarron made a hole in one during the first round of the CVS Charity Classic immediately following an ace made by fellow competitor, Lee Jansen on the 17th hole at Rhode Island CC. The shots were caught on tape and delighted fans for years.

Scott took a year and a half off in 2009 due to “Tommy John” surgery to repair a ligament in his right elbow. His rehabilitation had been long and arduous and during that time he committed to a golf specific physical fitness regimen. He had never been so fit until he suffered a partial tear in his left elbow early this year. The new injury withstanding, McCarron has decided to play the tour in 2011 and not choose the medical leave exemption.

Prior to the Clinic, Scott will be working in the booth at the Masters with broadcast journalist, Grant Boone, providing commentary for the live coverage of several featured groups for DirectTV, Masters.com and CBSSports.com, Thursday through Sunday in Augusta Georgia.

So mark your calendars and don’t miss this exciting event.
