The tournament officially starts Thursday, but tonight was the official kick off party for Victoria National United Leasing Championship. Tropicana Evansville hosted the dinner party.

This is also the pairing party where the pros find out which amateur players will play with this week.

The event always brings a big guest. Last year it was Vince Gill. This year, Marty Roe from the group Diamond Rio was in town.

"We're going to have fun tonight and enjoy playing some golf tomorrow," said Roe. "I am sure it is all going to a really good cause. Then, getting the chance the watch these kids, who are fixing the break onto the big tour. There are some great players out there. It is fun to watch."

The Pro-Am starts tomorrow with the main tournament on tap for Thursday. Stay tuned all week for exclusive United Leasing coverage.
