MLive: Jeff Blashill to play in Ally Challenge

MLive’s Brendan Savage reports that Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill will take part in the Ally Challenge in Grand Blanc, MI:

Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill will be teeing it up alongside three Hall of Famers in the Ally Challenge Celebrity Shootout Aug. 28 at Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc Twp.

Blashill will join Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo in the Celebrity Shootout, which will raise money for six Southeastern Michigan charities.

The nine-hole event will feature a $30,000 purse and will have a new format this year. The players will switch partners every three holes and will play a match-play scramble.

Each team will be playing for a specific charity and each hole will be assigned a dollar value.

“I’m thrilled to join the lineup for the Celebrity Shootout and look forward to raising money for charitable organizations in my home state of Michigan,” Blashill said in a statement. “Having the opportunity to play alongside golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino is incredibly exciting and I hope along the way to pick up a few tips to improve my game.”
