TEMECULA, Calif. (Oct. 25, 2022) – Nearly 30 Chargers Legends who once wore the blue and yellow lightning bolt jersey met up on a different kind of turf when they gathered to put their golf game to the test for the 2nd Annual Chargers Legends Golf Tournament at Journey at Pechanga at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, Calif.
Chargers’ legends such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Hank Bauer, Antonio Cromartie, Kris Dielman, Charlie Joiner, Drayton Florence and more came to the Temecula resort during Chargers Legends Weekend for the chance to show off their swings, and to share stories from the field.
“This is the best weekend because not only do you get a chance to see the guys you played with, but also guys that played before me and after me. And so, just being able to bring the generations together, talk about old stories, different teams the Chargers have had, how excited we are about the current Chargers and the passion they play with, it’s really a great time,” said Pro Football Hall Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson.
“This is my first time being here. It is amazing, the golf course is amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing how my golf game goes. It may go to the left. It may go to the right. I may get some down the middle and go from there,” said former All-Pro cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
Additionally, the former Bolts along with 40 Pechanga VIP guests were able to enjoy the newly overseeded and pristine golf course conditions.
A.G. Spanos, president of business operations of the Los Angeles Chargers, said the event presented the chance for alumni to remember the good old days, as well as the opportunity for the Chargers to say thank you to the Legends.
