Johnson, Furyk, Lopez join list of celebs for the Hootie

dustinjohnson-british3PGA Tour stars Dustin Johnson and Jim Furyk, pro football legend Marcus Allen and World Golf Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez are among the big names that have committed to play in the 20th annual Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am.

Johnson, who hasn’t finished worse than sixth in his last five stroke play events, is one of the hottest players in the world. He has moved up to eighth in the official world golf rankings and will enter The Masters as one of the pre-tournament favorites.

Allen, one of only four players to win both the Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl MVP awards, was one of the greatest running backs in National Football League history.

PGA Tour star and former U.S. Open winner Jim Furyk will be making his fourth consecutive appearance at the event, and LPGA legend Nancy Lopez will be playing for the second year in a row.

The Monday After the Masters will be played at the Dye Course at Barefoot Resort on April 14. This will mark the 12th consecutive year the event is played at the Dye Course and festivities will begin with the Celebrity Long Drive contest at 10 a.m. The tournament will tee off at 11 a.m.

Other stars committed to play are ESPN Radio host Mike Golic, Basketball Hall of Famer Rick Barry, Golf Channel personality Charlie Rymer, PGA Tour players John Daly and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, Grammy winning musician Branford Marsalis, and former South Carolina Gamecock stars Marcus Lattimore and Connor Shaw.

While tournament festivities begin with the Celebrity Long Drive contest, the day will start with ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike Show broadcasting live from the first tee at the Dye Course beginning at 6 a.m. It will mark the fourth consecutive year that America’s most popular sports talk show broadcasts from the Monday After the Masters.

All ticket proceeds benefit the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, which supports the educational needs of children in South Carolina and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation.
??Monday After the Masters has hosted celebrity actors, sports figures, musicians and more. Guests have included PGA Tour stars Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Jim Furyk, Davis Love III, Tom Watson, John Daly and Arnold Palmer, along with LPGA Tour stars Annika Sorenstam, Nancy Lopez and Kristy McPherson from Conway. Sports and entertainment stars Bill Murray, Samuel L. Jackson, John Elway, Johnny Damon, Dan Marino and Joey Fatone among many others, have also participated in the event.
