Day during the Toshiba Classic. Upholding a proud tradition where current stars of the Champions Tour share their knowledge of golf with fans of all generations, this fun-filled day will feature family discounts and activities topped off with the Sixth Annual Wells Fargo Junior Golf Clinic. The Toshiba Classic offers a special discount ticket package for families on Wells Fargo Family Day, which falls on the second round of the 54-hole competition. On March 7, families of four will receive 20 percent off the adult ticket price at the gate, and children 12 and under are admitted to the tournament for free. The $1.7 million Toshiba Classic will be televised on Golf Channel (tape delay) on Friday, March 6 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. PST and Saturday and Sunday, March 7-8 from 3:30-6 p.m. PST. The winner earns $255,000. Wells Fargo Family Day's popularity is in large part due to fan interaction with the Toshiba Classic golfers, who are renowned for their friendliness and accessibility to fans for autographs and photographs. The final event of the day is the Wells Fargo Junior Clinic, which gives children (ages 6-12) a chance to learn the fundamentals of golf and receive complimentary lessons from some of the Champions Tour's greatest players. Toshiba Classic pros like Fuzzy Zoeller and Andy Bean will be on hand to provide instruction at the Newport Beach Country Club driving range at 4:30 p.m. immediately following the second round of play. Among the special guests participating in this year's Wells Fargo Junior Clinic are a select number of children from the Special Olympics of Southern California. "Wells Fargo takes great pride in providing this unique opportunity for Orange County children," said Duane Allen, Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo Wealth Management Group. "The Junior Clinic provides a great place for kids to learn a little about the game of golf who might not otherwise have this opportunity. We are also delighted to be a part of such a wonderful event that supports charity."
