PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- The rain held off long enough for THE PLAYERS 5K with Donna to be completed on Saturday morning at TPC Sawgrass. This is the 7th year of this event in which the Stadium Course is the course that the runners compete on.
While Ponte Vedra resident Jim Furyk plays at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte this weekend, his family competed in this morning's race. Jim's wife Tabitha was joined on the course by their children Caleigh and Tanner.
Jeff Wight of Atlantic Beach turned in the fastest time of the day as he completed the 5K race in 16:30. The fastest woman was Kim Pawelek-Brantly of St. Augustine. Her time was 17:56.
All participants in Saturday morning's race have received tickets to return to TPC Sawgrass for the final round of THE PLAYERS on Sunday, May 11th. The annual "pink out" will take place on this day in honor of The Donna Foundation and Mother's Day. All fans are encouraged to wear pink while the flowers and flags at the Stadium Course will be pink as well.
