Georgia, Georgia Tech coaches to announce players


ATLANTA – In a nod to the solid season University of Georgia and Georgia Tech alumni have had on the PGA Tour this season, officials at the Tour Championship will have Bulldog golf coach Chris Haack and Yellow Jackets coach Bruce Heppler announce players on the 18th green for Round 1.

“I just hope I don’t mess up anyone’s name,” Haack smiled early Thursday.

Haack – whose former players Chris Kirk, Brendon Todd, Russell Henley and Bubba Watson are all playing this week’s finale in Atlanta – said this is the first time he’s attended the Tour Championship because the event coincides with the start of the college golf season.
