With the Players Championship to be played this week in nearby Ponte Vedra Beach, several members of the Jaguars will get in on the action Tuesday at "The King and The Bear" at the World Golf Village in an event to benefit The St. Johns County Council on Aging.
The event begins at two p.m. and is in shootout format, with one player eliminated after each hole. Jaguars players scheduled to participate include Rashean Mathis, Josh Scobee, Drayton Florence, Adam Podlesh, Cleo Lemon, Derek Landri, Joe Zelenka and Brad Meester. Former Jaguars punter Bryan Barker and former Gator and NFL quarterback Shane Matthews will also participate.
The public is invited to attend and fans should park at the Laterra Links (100 Laterra Links Circle) and take a trolley to the course.
