Take A Swing Against a Pro and Help UNM Children's Hospital

Beat the Pro is a summerlong golf tournament sponsored by KRQE News 13. Amateur golfers compete each week in a "closest to the pin" competition. A donation of $3 which goes to benefit UNM Children's Hospital will give the golfer a chance to beat the shot of the pro or celebrity of the week.

Each week, KRQE News 13 will visit an area golf course to videotape golfers as they tee-off on a Par-3 hole. The ten weekly winners will be invited to the championship round which will be held on Friday, August 31.
