DREW WEAVER “PINK OUT” AT WYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP

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, the High Point, N.C. golfer 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.
