Mill Valley's Huey Lewis Shines at AT&T Pro-Am

Veteran rock 'n' roll singer hits a 40-foot chip to win 3M Celebrity Challenge and earn $20,000 for charity.

Not long after Huey Lewis and the News started churning out a ridiculous string of hit singles, each propelled by a goofy music video, the Mill Valley native started playing the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament, and he's been going ever since.

Lewis, who was born in New York and arrived in Mill Valley at age four, is at it again this week. He hit a 40-foot chip shot on the 18th green on Wednesday to win a 12-man "chip-off" and earn $20,000 for charity, according to the Monterey Herald.

Lewis attended Tam Valley Elementary for a year and then Strawberry Point Elementary before moving on to Edna Maguire, which was a junior high school at the time.

Huey Lewis and the News kick off a string of live dates in May.
