Freeze will play in the Pro-Am for the third time since becoming the Rebels’ coach.

Mullen looks forward to playing in the event.

“It’s great to play alongside some of the world’s best golfers,” Mullen said. “The Mississippi Gulf Coast is an important part of our state and I’m looking forward to participating in an event that has such a significant economic impact on the region.”
