Over the past 17 years, the Monday After the Masters has donated millions to the cause of supporting the educational needs of South Carolina children and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation. The Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am Golf Tournament attracts thousands of revelers to Myrtle Beach to enjoy the music of the Grammy-winners and the friendly competition between the band members and their celebrity and professional friends on the golf course.
Several notable current and former professional athletes have signed on for the 2013 edition of the Monday after the Masters, though a full lineup of athletes and celebrities won’t be announced until closer to the event.
NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end L.C. Greenwood, 2012 U.S. Ryder Cup Team Captain Davis Love III, and basketball legend Rick Barry are expected to make their first appearance in the 19th Hootie MAM on April 15 at the Barefoot Resort Dye Club in North Myrtle Beach.
