GREENSBORO, N.C. – Drew Weaver is working to “Pink Out” the Wyndham Championship for Friday’s second round of the Wyndham Championship, it was announced today. The 71st annual Wyndham Championship runs today through Sunday at Sedgefield Country Club.
Last December, Weaver’s mother, Cathy, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had two surgeries and has now completed her treatments. To raise awareness of breast cancer, Weaver is encouraging PGA TOUR golfers and fans alike to wear a pink shirt to tomorrow’s second round of the Wyndham Championship.
“Thankfully, my mother has come through her treatments, and she’s doing well,” Weaver said. “But I still want to raise awareness, and I hope a lot of people will wear pink shirts to the tournament tomorrow.”
“I was just really honored that Drew wanted to do this,” Cathy Weaver said. “Drew’s kind of quiet about stuff like this, but this was his idea. For him to do something like this is just wonderful, and he’s been extremely supportive.”
To assist Weaver in his “Pink Out” plan, the Wyndham Championship will provide pink ribbons for tournament volunteers, staff, players and anyone else who would like to wear one.
