Skaneateles native Tom Scherrer to play in Upstate Medical University’s charity Skins Game June 20

Skaneateles native Tom Scherrer has been added to round out the foursome in the charity Skins Game sponsored by the Upstate Medical University Foundation. Scherrer will join Chi Chi Rodriguez, Gary Player and Horseheads native Joey Sindelar for the tournament at Green Lakes State Park June 20.

“We’re delighted that Tom could join this celebrated foursome,” said Eileen Pezzi, vice president for development and executive director of the Upstate Medical University Foundation. “His presence provides fans with another opportunity to see one of our local golf greats.”

Scherrer replaces Jay Haas, who was unable to commit due to a last minute scheduling conflict. All others have signed contracts to participate in the event.

Scherrer joined the PGA Tour in 1996, earning $136,323 in his rookie season. His best finish on the PGA Tour came that same season when he placed third at the Phoenix Open. His best outing last year was tied for fifth at the Michelob Championship.

Individual tickets for the Skins Game can be purchased at all area P&C Food Stores for a reduced advanced sale price of $25. Tickets will also be available at the Central New York Golfing Center, 310 E. First Street, East Syracuse (next to Rico’s Restaurant), and can be charged by phone (VISA or Mastercard) by calling the Upstate Medical University Foundation at (315)464-4416. Tickets purchased the day of the event will be $35.

Proceeds from the event will go to support many fundraising activities of the Upstate Medical University Foundation, which supports patient care, education and research activities of the Upstate Medical University and University Hospital.
