The Pro-Am pairings dinner for the Dick's Sporting Goods Open was held at the Events Center on Tuesday.

Hundreds of people were in attendance to enjoy great food, bid on silent auction items and find out with whom they are paired.

The legendary "Voice of the Senior Tour" Jim Kelly was on hand to speak and help with the draw. Kelly is in the area all week as a guest of Dick's Sporting Goods.

He said one thing separates the Champions Tour from all others -- relationships.

"These guys get it. They give back not only to the community, and charity, but by getting to know their pro-am partners. It's less business than the one day pro-am on the PGA Tour. This is a two day party," said Kelly.

Notable names taking part in Wednesday's Pro-Am include Fuzzy Zoeller, Craig Stadler, Peter Jacobsen and hometown favorite Joey Sindelar.
