Mike and Mike in the Morning to Broadcast Live March 31 from Shell Houston Open

Mike and Mike in the Morning is coming to the Shell Houston Open againFor a second straight year the Mike and Mike in the Morning national sports talk show will be broadcasting live from the Shell Houston Open PGA Tour event.

Hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic will be doing their show live from the Champions Pavilion, adjacent to the 18th hole at the Redstone Golf Club –Tournament Course. Simulcast on ESPN2 television, the syndicated ESPN Radio show is carried locally by ESPN 97.5 The Ticket (KFNC-FM). The show will air from 5-9 a.m. CST.

Once again there will be a charitable component to the appearance. In keeping with the Shell Houston Open’s commitment to community support, funds raised by the Houston Golf Association in a special auction set for March 3 in the final hour of the Mike and Mike in the Morning show will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Upon concluding their show Greenberg and Golic are scheduled to play in the Shell Houston Open Wednesday Grand Pro-Am on the Redstone Golf Club – Tournament Course. They will be joined by the top bidder and his/her invited guest, who claimed the playing spots in the group in this national charity auction.

In 2009 the event generated $47,500 for The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Frank Thomas of Tennessee was the top bidder. He elected to have his sons Stephen and Allen play in the group that included PGA Tour professional Ben Curtis, a former British Open champion.

The Shell Houston Open was recognized by the PGA Tour at its annual meeting with tournament organizers for the best new promotional event for 2009.

The Shell Houston Open and Houston Golf Association are providing roundtrip airfare to Houston for two, hotel accommodations for Tuesday and Wednesday, plus the Pro-Am spots and VIP tickets to the tournament for Thursday. This special Shell Houston Open package will be promoted on upcoming Mike and Mike in the Morning programs leading up to the March 3 one-hour (between 8 and 9 a.m. CST, 9-10 a.m. EST) open bidding via a toll free telephone number.
