What a Wednesday it was at this year's RBC Heritage presented by Boeing, with the pro-am and the Carolina Challenge featuring Dustin Johnson and Harold Varner III highlighting the schedule.
Woke up to the 5:30 alarm this morning to get down and reserve my favorite players for standard bearing. The group I was standard bearing for was led by Corey Conners on the front 9 and followed up with Peter Malnati on the back. Standard bearing is one of the most fun things you get to do as a volunteer, in my opinion. The experience of being inside the ropes with your favorite player is a dream come true for most of the kids out there.
Whenever my group got done I rushed over to the Heritage Lawn to watch the Carolina Challenge, which was hosted by RBC. The competitors this year were Dustin Johnson from Columbia and Harold Varner III from the Charlotte area. The challenge consisted of a flop contest, a friendly game of Carolina trivia, and a more competitive game of cornhole. After the cornhole, it wound up as a tie so they went over to the RBC Global Asset Management long putt contest, where HVIII came out on top to win the competition.
After the Carolina Challenge, I hung out around the clubhouse and putting green for a little bit, then I got a text from WSAV sports director Andrew Goldstein wanting to do a story on me and my goals in sports journalism. I said of course and that interview went by smoothly. So look out for me on WSAV on Thursday or Friday.
After the interview, it was time to head home for the night and reset that 5:30 alarm for the morning, See y’all out there Thursday for the first round and look for me as a standard bearer.
