There are always perks to playing in big-time golf events, but nothing matches what you can get if you're good enough to tee off at the Providence Open. Taking place this Thursday and Friday, the 36-hole strokes play tournament will be hosted by Triggs Memorial Golf Course. The Rhode Island public course also just happens to be less than a 10-minute drive from the Foxy Lady, and that strip club is taking full advantage of the local mini-tour outing.

Not only are they sponsoring a hole, but players competing will get in free this Friday for a time-honored tradition at the Foxy Lady called “Legs and Eggs.” Breakfast and a show. The positive reviews (of the eggs) are already pouring in.

Mini-tour pros are hustling to make a living playing golf, so a free meal is a free meal. That’s just good New England hospitality.

It also seems that the Foxy Lady has a bit of lore in the sports world as Red Sox legend Mo Vaughn was known to be a frequent visitor of the adult entertainment club. The following is an incredible anecdote about Vaughn's exploits from Colin Moore at Clutter.

“I sat down on the couch the next afternoon to watch the Red Sox play the California Angels and was particularly interested to see how the big guy would perform. He must still have been at the Foxy Lady around 3:00 a.m. at least, and that was only eight hours earlier, so he clearly hadn't gotten a full night's sleep.

“I was not expecting much out of the guy. If memory serves me correctly after all these years, Vaughn went something like 4 for 5 with multiple RBI and made at least two diving plays at first. I feel like he also stole a base, but BaseballReference.com says otherwise. All in all, it was a remarkable performance, and I can only assume that the "Legs and Eggs Breakfast" did him a world of good.”

If the “Legs and Eggs” spread worked for the former American League MVP, there’s no reason to think that it won’t be beneficial for the men competing at the Providence Open. Even they don't get much sleep, at least they won't be teeing off with an empty stomach.
