From Dustin Johnson to Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, there are many golfers from South Carolina making a name for themselves on the PGA tour.  After a successful career as Tour Manager for Hootie and the Blowfish, our next guest was introduced to professional golf when he took over the reins as the Tournament Director for the band’s Monday after the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am golf tournament.  Now he represents professional golfers, negotiating everything from television contracts to endorsement agreements.
