Local Golfers Head to Pebble Beach to Compete for National Title

Four local golfers will be representing the region at the legendary Pebble Beach Resorts this month for the National Finals of the National Kidney Foundation Cadillac Golf Classic.

Charlie Bertucio of Lafayette, Bruce Smith of San Francisco, Greg Trento of San Ramon and Tito Rael of Menlo Park qualified for the prestigious event via their top finish at the NKF’s Cadillac Golf Classic Tournament held at Stanford University last March. They will challenge more than 50 other teams from across the country in the 54-hole tournament to be contested January 17-19, 2014.

The foursome will play competitive rounds at the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay during the three-day event, with eyes set on securing the national title.

The National Kidney Foundation Cadillac Golf Classic, a nationwide series of over 35 golf tournaments held in major cities across the country, is the Premier Amateur Golf Event for Charity, raising more than $3.5 million annually for the NKF. The local tournament at Stanford University raised $64,000 to support awareness, prevention and treatment programs in the San Francisco Bay Area.


The NKF Cadillac Golf Classic is supported by its Title Sponsor, Cadillac; National Corporate Partners include PING, Golf Digest/Golf World, and One Car One Difference; and National Promotional Partners Bridgestone Golf, The Greg Norman Collection and Tiffany & Co. The Pebble Beach Finals are also supported by HM Insurance Group and Anheuser-Busch.
