Congrats to a former Florentine.

This pic is of Carl Peterson receiving his winner's check after winning the 2008 Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC.

Why should you care? Well, the PGA's Tour Advisory Council picked the Wyndham as the tour's "Most Improved Event." Still wondering why you should care? Because a big reason they won the award was a former resident of Florence: Keith Wood. Wood was the superintendent of Florence Country Club until moving on to Sedgefield recently. Soon after taking over in Greensboro, Wood began the task of readying the course to host a PGA event. I know he put in a lot of hours and worked his tail off.

For those that played at FCC during his reign, you know Keith knew his sh*t and was a great guy.

Keith and his wife Leslie also happen to be friends. So congrats, guys. And yes, we definitely need to take a road trip up that way to see you guys soon.
