Maggert Makes 150 Yd Trick Shot for Habitat for Humanity

Last year’s Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic champion is back on the Coast and is taking a few practice swings for charity, not on the golf course, but over Highway 90 instead.

Jeff Maggert took some time away from practicing to take aim at a target 150 yards away and across Beach Boulevard. If Maggert hits the 16 square foot target with at least one of his ten attempts, C Spire will donate $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity, and one lucky contestant will win a grand prize valued at over $15,000. Maggert says the experience may have helped him prepare for the tournament.

He says, “Hopefully it’s not quite this windy out there at Fallen Oak, it’s a little bit more protected, but certainly I’ve been hitting the ball well the past month or so and I’m looking forward to making a few putts this week and another run at the title.”

Maggert hit the target with his very first shot. Carl Hedberg won a new smartphone with a year of service and a Yamaha wave runner, but the real winner was Habitat for Humanity.
