Stars Came Out for Monday After the Masters
04.16.11 01:27 AM

The 17th Annual Hootie & The Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am finished with an incredible ending on Monday afternoon. The tournament went into a sudden death chip-off with PGA player Kyle Thompson and former major league pitcher Jared Wright breaking a three way tie to claim the victory at The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort & Golf.

The winning team had an amazing finish and rounded out at 19-under par; their round included three eagles on one of the most challenging SC Myrtle Beach Golf Courses.
