They’re Teeing It Up at Charity Golf Classic

Posted by Randy Lange on June 1, 2009 – 4:30 pm

It’s that time of year again, when the Jets trade in their hard hats for puffy pants and play golf for good causes.

The sixth annual New York Jets Charity Golf Classic presented by National Communications Group (NCG) will be played Tuesday, and for the first time the event will be held in New Jersey, at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.

More than 20 current Jets players will mix with a group of Jets front office members, a handful of Jets alumni and foursomes of fans/golfers in the best-ball scramble tournament.

Among the players expected to attend are, alphabetically: Kellen Clemens, Jerricho Cotchery, James Dearth, Marques Douglas, Shaun Ellis, Jay Feely, Vernon Gholston, James Ihedigbo, Anthony Harris, Kris Jenkins, Dustin Keller, Jim Leonhard, Nick Mangold, Brandon Moore, Darrelle Revis, Eric Smith, Donald Strickland, Chansi Stuckey, Jason Trusnik, Eric Wilbur, Danny Woodhead and Wallace Wright

Head coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum also plan to be on hand.

Among the alumni, Greg Buttle, Wayne Chrebet, Joe Klecko and Marty Lyons are expected to swing into action. Jets radio voice Bob Wischusen will emcee before the tourney kicks off in the morning and at the dinner to close the day, and Jets Flight Crew cheerleaders will set up around Trump National to sell raffle tickets.

The field has to be concerned about Dearth, who, despite allegedly golfing only about once a year, has been the Jets anchor for the winning fivesomes for the past two tournaments.

Last year there was a three-way tie for second place, broken by a match of cards. The Brad Kassel team placed second, the Wischusen/Buttle quintet took third and the team piloted by Tannenbaum and senior personnel executive Terry Bradway came in fourth.

All proceeds will benefit the New York Jets Foundation, which over the past nine years has raised or contributed more than $9 million to promote youth health, fitness and education, particularly in disadvantaged communities, and about $1 million through the golf tournament alone since 2004.

This event is closed to the public, but newyorkjets.com will bring all you golf geeks and football freaks stories from the event via Twitter and with stories, blogs and photos on our Website.

This is the first event of two weeks of activities in Jets Week, the feature events being the five full-squad minicamp practices on June 9-11 at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center that will be open to the public. Check out our calendar to see the lineup of events.

    Sometimes a picture tells a million words. The Daily News has a picture of Leon’s 47 yd TD run right before the 1st half of the Bills game.It was his only carry of the game but he made the most of it. This year with the handcuffs off of Schotty we will see more of Leon and many more runs like this. GO LEON and JETS!!!! All enjoy the golf.

    carl, many of the players on the roster will be leaving practice to participate in the Shirts Off Their Backs promotion in Morristown, Florham Park and Madison. I’m interested to see how it works out, too.

    I love T-rich but he wont be around forever. Why did we let go of Southerland he was prob. my favorite un-drafted FA . Why does this team not understand the importance of a good FB, T-rich should have 3-4 touches a game, and we need someone to spell/replace him when he retires(witch will be in the next 2 seasons).

    all this QB battle going end when we see the numbers to Mark contract when he get like 70 million, we can not keep that much money on the bench, plus im rooting for clemons too with his family and all, but we will have a problem if he does really good, what we gone to then, cant trade me cause we dont know what marks all about, can keep em both and how he going tell Mark go, it not really a gud

    Ira Taking the handcuffs off of Shotty are you talking about how he had to “dumb down” the offense for Brett or how Mangini limited his ingenuity? Either way it should be a fun year with a coach not afraid to take chances and a cerebral QB at the helm.

    Hogan,
    caulcril i believe will win that b/u FB job this year. And MikeMc probably a little of both. But atleast Rex is giving Schotty the full show and i think he will do great either with Sanchez or Kellen.

    I think Schotty’s refusal to go to the run was exactly why we didn’t make the playoffs last year. The handcuffs were more then off, we were in 5 wr sets without a RB. What more could he do? I’m super worried when it comes to pass blocking the DE’s, and finding someone to get down the field. Schotty should win or be fired, he’s had more then enough of a chance. Ready for the Sanchez hold-out!

    Ablity, Haveing 2 good QB is a problem we want. Tradeing either one is always an option. also THE MONEY IS SPENT NO MATTER WHO PLAYS. For the last time, both players will be paid. It does not matter witch one plays and witch one sits. Numbers wise it is all the same. Row, when did you get so negitive,relax I was not happy about the Sanchez move but let him prove it to us.
