By By Adam Robinson
PGA golfer Boo Weekley was right at home last weekend.
Weekley, a resident of Jay, Fla. and a member of the Country Club of Brewton, was in Brewton this last weekend for his fifth annual Boo Weekly Camp Compass Scramble that was held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the County Club of Brewton.
Weekley’s manager Toggy Pace said the scramble went well.
Pace said Weekley’s tournament is held at the CCB because Boo considers the course his home course and is where he often plays and practices.
Weekley is playing well on the PGA tour this year, despite some struggles, Pace said.
With the 95 teams of two golfers each, 190 total golfers took place in the event.
On Friday night before the tournament was to begin on Saturday, a live and silent auction was held to help raise money for Camp Compass.
