To raise support for Shriners Hospitals for Children, five PGA TOUR pros put their putting skills to the test and took the Long Putt Challenge at the CenturyLink Prism Playground. James Driscoll, Ryuji Imada, David Mathis, Rod Pampling and Kevin Stadler stepped up to the putting green and for each putt made, CenturyLink donated $500 to Shriners Hospitals. Following a few practice swings, Stadler, the Reno, NV, native found the sweet spot and sank a putt. The interactive fan experience with CenturyLink has raised more than $5,500 for the hospitals today and attendees can continue to swing for charity at the Prism Playground throughout the week.
