Former ABAC golfer Boo Weekley will play in his third Masters this week, his first since 2009.
The fan favorite qualified for this year's tournament after winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational in 2013. Weekley says he's happy to be back at Augusta National and glad his usual supporting fans have followed.
"It just goes to show, you know, that you come out and you play golf, and people want to be like you, and talk like you, and its fun," Weekley said. " It's an honor the first thing, to be able to sit there and sign autographs. you know its something you never dreamed of as a kid."
Weekley's best finish is a tie for 20th in 2008.
