Volunteers ready course for Monday after the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Seven hundred volunteers and thousands of spectators are ready for Monday after the Masters in North Myrtle Beach.

On Sunday, crews combed the course to prepare for the celebrity charity golf tournament. The golf capital of the world is in the national spotlight, with celebrities and touring pros golfing on the Grand Strand Sunday - a practice run for Monday's tournament while crews quickly set up for the thousands of people expected at the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort

"We're expecting hopefully beautiful weather, low scores, and for the golfing community that comes here to have a lot of fun," said Jeff Diehl with the PGA.

On a tour of the course with the head golf professional, there are celebrity spottings at almost every hole, including "Jim Furyk, Nancy Lopez is here, Tommy Gainey, ‘Two Gloves Tommy' is going to be here," Diehl said.

The roster includes NFL players, musicians, comedians - household names for many of us, and regulars at the tournament.

"They're regulars, they support Darius and the band," Diehl said.

The band they're supporting is Hootie and the Blowfish, who put on this celebrity charity golf tournament.

"It's the 20th anniversary of the event," Diehl said. For twenty years the foundation has raised money, most of it staying right here in South Carolina, and for over a decade the Dye Club has hosted the event. All proceeds from the event benefit the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation and the South Carolina Junior Golf Association.

"What I love about it is it puts Myrtle Beach on the map," Diehl said.

Organizers believe this is the most popular Monday after the Masters event yet, with tickets selling out in one day. They hope to see the charity tournament continue right here on the Grand Strand.
