— Johnny Bench, Jeff Foxworthy and Dan Marino are some of the stars taking to the greens this weekend as part of the Duke Children's Classic.

There is a $252,000 purse at stake at the USGA sanctioned, 36-hole tournament, but there is more to the Classic than just golf. It raises money for the children at Duke's Children's Hospital.

The tournament continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the gate at Croasdaile Country Club in Durham. Kids 12 and younger get in free.
