Justin Leonard Visits Kids at St. Jude

Defending St. Jude Classic Champion Justin Leonard Returns to Memphis to swing his clubs..

But, he's not taking aiming for Birdies at the Tournament Players Club at Southwind..

No, Today, Leonard is Downtown at St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital..

He's playing Putt-Putt with several of the youthful patients.

A short minature Golf range is set up in front of the Hospital to give the Kids a chance to see how a Real Pro like Leonard gets it done.

Leonard says coming back to Memphis as Defending Champion gives him more impetus to win it again.

  Leonard says now that he has kids of his own, just seeing the children at St. Jude makes him realize what a precious gift we all are, and how the Tournament, and the City of Memphis should be proud to have such a place that serves the whole country.

The 52nd Annual St. Jude Classic is set for June 8th through the 14th at the TPC at Southwind.
