It's a special week here in Greensboro, N.C., at the Wyndham Championship for Titleist Brand Ambassador Drew Weaver, the local favorite who played high school golf just 15 minutes down the road from Sedgefield Country Club.
"It's a nice commute this week," said Weaver, smiling.
Weaver, 23, graduated from High Point (N.C.) Central in 2005, then went to play golf at Virginia Tech. Two years later, he won the British Amateur and earned an invitation to the Masters.
Weaver said he's played Sedgefield "about 30-40 times" and feels very comfortable on the golf course.
He also has the support of perhaps the tournament's biggest gallery, which includes his mother, Cathy, who has been fighting breast cancer since November. On Friday, Weaver will be wearing a pink golf shirt and leading a "pink-out" to raise awareness of the disease. (You can read more about Weaver's efforts on The Roanoke Times' Web site.)
Weaver guided Team Titleist through his bag Wednesday on the range. Get the scoop on all of Weaver's Titleist equipment in the video below:
