— BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn University graduate who became famous as the girlfriend of the University of Alabama's quarterback is making an appearance at the Regions Tradition golf tournament near Birmingham.

Model Katherine Webb will be on hand to greet fans at the PGA Champions Tour event at Shoal Creek.

Organizers say Webb will pose for photos with fans to raise money for Children's of Alabama, a hospital in Birmingham. She'll also be in a putting contest.

Webb gained fame during the BCS title game as she watched boyfriend AJ McCarron lead the Crimson Tide over Notre Dame.

Webb's Twitter following took off after cameras focused on her and announcer Brent Musburger began talking about her.

Webb has subsequently made appearances on TV including the ABC reality show "Splash."
