Lexington’s own Josh Teater recently moved his family back to the Bluegrass from St. Simons Island, Georgia, and later this week he will play on his home turf at the PGA TOUR’s Barbasol Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club. Teater’s third Barbasol Championship appearance but his first since coming home, he hopes to improve upon his sixth-place finish in 2019, and will undoubtedly be one of the most popular players in the field.
Excited to be back in the community, Teater announced he will also give back to the community through a Barbasol Birdie Drive. The Henry Clay graduate pledged $250 per birdie and $500 per eagle to Caddie127, the charitable organization attached to the tournament whose charities include All God’s Children, Kentucky Children’s Hospital, the Kentucky Region of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Refuge for Women, Sunrise Children’s Services, and the Woodhill Community Center.
Teater told KSR, “Now that Ashley and I are settled back in Lexington with our boys, we are excited to reconnect and re-engage within our community and home state. What better way to begin than supporting our home PGA Tour event, The Barbasol Championship and its charitable endeavors with a Birdie Drive! Join us July 15-18 at Champions at Keene Trace as we pledge $250 for each birdie and $500 for every eagle that I make during the tournament to be donated to Caddie127!”

The tournament begins Thursday and tickets are still available for anyone wanting to follow Teater and see a PGA TOUR event in Kentucky.
