ABOUT KIDSWING: KidSwing is a nine-hole, best-ball scramble for players ages 7 to 18 at all levels of golfing ability. The original KidSwing golf tournament was founded in 2003 by former Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) patient Ben Sater of Plano and his mother, Kim Sater. Ben founded KidSwing as a way to give back to TSRHC for the care he received. KidSwing is all about kids helping kids, and to date, KidSwing golf tournaments have raised more than $1.2 million for TSRHC. Currently, three KidSwing tournaments are played in the Dallas-Fort Worth area each year.
