Columbus Commons To Host Presidents Cup Events

The musical group Rascal Flatts will perform at Columbus Commons downtown on October 2nd as part of a day of events leading up to the Presidents Cup golf tournament. Other events include an international food and entertainment festival, an opening ceremony for the tournament, and a fireworks display. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Children's Hospital. The Presidents Cup takes place at Muirfield Village in Dublin with the top 12 U.S. golfers competing against the best 12 players from around the world - excluding Europe. The U.S. team has won seven of the last nine competitions. Each player allocates an equal portion of the funds raised at the tournament to the charity of their choice.
