President George HW Bush To Receive Award


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Former President George H.W. Bush arrived at TPC Sawgrass earlier this afternoon – with his herd of Secret Service – and will receive the PGA Tour’s Lifetime Achievement Award at 5 p.m. on the 18th green.
President Bush, saddled with a bad back, chatted with numerous players, including U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin, then went out to the infamous 17th hole to watch a few groups pass through. After taking photos with several players, Bush, with the help of a standing ovation, was driven away back to the clubhouse to prepare for the afternoon festivities.
