The team led PGA Tour star Jim Furyk and Hootie & the Blowfish guitarist Mark Bryan won the 20th annual Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am title with an 18-under par score of 54 at Barefoot Resort’s Dye Course Monday.
For the ninth consecutive year a sellout out crowd of 6,000+ fans packed the Dye Course to watch their favorite athletes, musicians and celebrities compete in the Monday After the Masters.
Headlining the star-laden tournament were PGA TOUR stars Dustin Johnson and Furyk; LPGA legend Nancy Lopez; Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, and football hall of famers Richard Dent, Eric Dickerson Marcus Allen and Bruce Smith. Among the professional golfers who joined Johnson, Furyk and Lopez were Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, Charlie Rymer, Billy Horschel and Boo Weekley. Representing the music world were legendary saxophonist Branford Marsalis, country sensation Steve Azar, R&B singer Javier Colon; singer-songwriter Edwin McCain; Andrew Copeland of Sister Hazel and Dan Tyminski of Union Station.
The day began with ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike Show broadcasting live from the Dye Course’s first tee. It was the fourth consecutive year America’s most popular sports talk show originated from the event. Proceeds from the tournament, which has raised nearly $5 million for charity, go to the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, which supports the educational needs of children in South Carolina and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation.
