Both sons have golf in their blood and Scottsdale resident Tom Lehman couldn’t have found a better opportunity to play with his son and raise money for his favorite charity at the same time.
All players are supporting Elevate Phoenix, a local non-profit providing 24/7 mentoring for at-risk youth.
“It is with great honor and excitement that my son Thomas and I get to team up together in the 2nd Annual Father’s Day Match for a Cause,” said Tom Lehman. “This year at The Westin Kierland Golf Club we will go toe-to-toe with long-time friend Mark O’Meara and his son Shaun. I’m also thrilled the Elevate Phoenix organization will serve as the sole benefactor of this special fundraiser. My heart has been a part of their mission for more than 11 years and the success of their students is a win for us all. We couldn’t have done this event without the support of Troon, Match Play TV and Versatile Golf; it’s a true team effort.”

The “2nd Annual Father’s Day Match for a Cause” is a two-person father/son 18-hole competition. Each competitor will play their own ball and the lowest score of the twosome is the team score. All Par 3s have designated sponsors hosting a closest to the pin competition for major bragging rights.
“Elevate Phoenix is extremely grateful to be selected as the designated charity of choice for this year’s Father’s Day Match for a Cause,” said Elevate Phoenix President Ed Beasley. “It’s because of supporters like Tom Lehman, Mark O’Meara, Great Clips, Bally Sports & host Ray Adams’ generosity that we can continue to advance our mission of delivering long-term, life-changing relationships with our urban youth. Especially when our Teacher/Mentors were asked to provide above and beyond support during this past Covid school year, their investment helps us continue developing successful leaders of our future.
” The ability to host an event on Father’s Day for an organization that provides mentorship opportunities holds special meaning for Mark O’Meara. “My son Shaun and I are looking forward to playing with Tom and Thomas in the Father/Son Match for a Cause,” said O’Meara. “We hope everyone can tune in because it’s going to be special when a father and son get to play in a dual like this for a great cause.”
