SASKATOON – A big announcement emerged this week, as American golf legend Fred Couples is slated to return to Saskatoon for the “Drive for Kids Campaign 2014” charity golf tournament.

This summer’s event will be an all-star lineup with Couples joining Jay Haas and David Feherty. There are six spots available to purchase nine holes alongside Couples and Haas.

Couples took part in the event two years ago and vowed to return to the Bridge City after he was unable to play due to an injury. In 2012, the local event raised $300,000 towards a crisis nursery makeover.

This year, the tournament will be raising funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

The goal is to raise $90,000 for two neonatal jet ventilator’s for critical neonatal and pediatric patients at the hospital once it is constructed.
