Gary McCord entertains the HHBC

In May Hood Hargett Breakfast Club welcomed storyteller extraordinaire, not to mention professional golfer, CBS Sports commentator and author, Gary McCord to our flagship event at Carmel Country Club. Gary kicked off his comments by noting that PGA players love coming to Charlotte because it is a sports town, and its citizens love golf so much. A nice compliment that got quick a round of applause! Gary regaled Club members and their guests with many stories, including his start in broadcasting and his participation in the movie Tin Cup. His most entertaining tale was in response to an audience question about the most amazing shot he’d ever seen. Surprisingly, it was one of his own, and it was a story that included gin, a glass door and a pelican. Gary ended his presentation when asked about his favorite up and coming players. He named several, including Sam Burrows, and noted that domination in golf today is pure distance. The Club thoroughly enjoyed Gary’s visit, and many members enjoyed the Wachovia Championship after the program.
