PGA salutes the Habs

NHL.com @NHL
MONTREAL -- The PGA came to town and tipped its cap to the Canadiens' glorious history.

The Fontainebleau Golf Club, the site of a PGA event this weekend, hosted a one-of-a-kind happening on Thursday that saw its lush fairways and greens graced by as many golf stars as hockey ones.

Thanks to an idea originated from 1992 Masters winner Fred Couples and former Canadiens President Ronald Corey and as a special request from the PGA itself, tournament organizers honored the NHL's most celebrated franchise (VIEW PHOTOS).

To a man, every caddy ditched their usual golf attire in favor of a Habs jersey bearing the names of Canadiens legends. From Howie Morenz and the Richard brothers to Yvan Cournoyer and Patrick Roy, 17 jerseys in all represented the men who have had their numbers retired by the Habs.
