Golf News: Larry Fitzgerald and Bill Murray Partner During AT&T Every Shot Counts Charity Challenge

Wednesday afternoon, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will partner with actor Bill Murray to show off their golf skills. The two men will face off with two other teams in a charity challenge. They will try to raise money during the AT&T Every Shot Counts Charity Challenge, which will air live on the Golf Channel.

According to the AT&T, Every Shot Counts Charity Challenge site, these six celebrities will participate in the five-hole charity challenge in order to raise money for basic necessities in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties. Alfonso Ribeiro and rapper Macklemore will raise money to combat food insecurity while Kathryn Newton and Kira K. Dixon will target health inequities. Murray and Fitzgerald will focus on educational inequities caused by COVID-19.

AT&T will provide a $1 million purse for the Charity Challenge while sponsors will provide another $600,000 through three hole-specific challenges. Chevron will sponsor a long-drive contest on the 2nd hole while 3M will sponsor a closest-to-the-green contest on the 3rd hole. Cisco will round out the group and sponsor a closest-to-the-pin contest on the 17th hole. Each challenge will be worth $200,000.

In addition to the high-profile competitors — who will all take coronavirus tests and carry their own bags — the Charity Challenge will feature other guests. Broadcaster Jim Nantz will serve as the host while Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young will be the official scorekeeper.
