KidSwing, celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer, is a nine-hole, best-ball scramble for children ages 7 to 18 at all levels of golfing ability. TSRHC patient Colin Ashlock, age 13 of Sherman, will speak at the awards ceremony about his experience at the hospital. His inspirational words are meant to remind the participants of why they are raising funds for TSRHC. KidSwing is proud to be presented by Ambit Energy this year.

KidSwing, presented by Ambit Energy, 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 $1.3 million for TSRHC. Currently, three KidSwing tournaments are played in the Dallas-Fort Worth area each year.
