The storms stopped and the sun finally came out at Treesdale Golf & Country Club for the 2015 Ben Roethlisberger Foundation Invitational on Monday!


Before heading out to the course…

Golfers stopped by the BRF Invitational Pro Shop filled with Oakley merchandise compliments of Apollo Jets.

“Boy!! Uncle Brett SURE has a lot of hair on his face! I can’t even find his chin in there!” — Baylee

The morning started with some pre-tournament games sponsored by Apollo Jets, Sprint, Kyocera Mobile, the King Street Grille and PNC Bank!

Rob Priebal looks hopeful that he can master the Kyocera Mobile “Hazard” pre-tournament game.

Andrew Allen DID master the Sprint “Cut your bill in half” pre-tournament game!

And our King Street Grille “Marksman” for the day was none other than Benjamin, Jr!! Check out that form!

First, you throw the football in an attempt to beat #7’s speed of 60 mph. Second, you go over and get a shoulder massage from Melinda Stevenson, courtesy of Sewickley Chiropractic Center.

The Shotgun Start was heard promptly at 1:00 PM…

Let the tournament begin! Gentlemen, start your engines!

“Look out everybody!! I’ve got the wheel and we’re headin’ for the course!! Dad and I are gonna win this thing!” — Benjamin, Jr.

Da Beard on Da Course with Da Iron!

Merril Hoge (red shirt) came out again this year to support Ben and his foundation!

And so did KDKA TV Sports Director Bob Pompeani, with a BIG high five for Big Ben!

Always a family affair! Ken Roethlisberger looking mighty spiffy in his neutral golfing togs!

It’s obvious where Benjamin Jr. gets his golf form!

91 golfers (including Mr. Art Rooney), gorgeous day, great sponsors & a very good cause.

STOP BY Ben’s photo gallery to check out all the great photos!
