Joe Don Rooney of the group Rascal Flatts came the closest to a hole-in-one at the inaugural Million Dollar Hole-in-One for Charity event at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Feb. 11 in California. Rooney chose Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt as the beneficiary of his $50,000 prize. Among those presenting the check to Rooney include the event’s hosts, Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood (who is also the chair of the board of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation) and CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz.
