“The only thing a golfer needs is more daylight,” said the late Ben Hogan.
I’ll second that!
The more time we have to spend soaking up the magnificent atmosphere surrounding the beautiful Colonial Country Club this time of year, the better.
I’m no Jordan Spieth, but I understand the transformative nature of this annual PGA tournament, and what its special brand of philanthropy has meant to deserving charities in Fort Worth, Tarrant County and the North Texas community since the event began in the 1940s.
Over the past week or so, we have highlighted stories from a special section published in 360 West – a nostalgic look at some of the unforgettable people, several unsung but certainly not unnoticed, who’ve made unique, sometimes historic contributions along the way.
It’s our company’s privilege to add our names to the generations of dedicated Texans who’ve supported the Colonial tournament, now known as the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, to make it the world-class event it is today.
This week, while you’re enjoying some of the best golf competition in the world (that just so happens to be right here in Fort Worth), join me with a hearty tip of the cap to the dedicated staff and 1,300 volunteers, as well as thousands of fans and supporters.
They all serve as the inspirational heartbeat of this extraordinary community event.
