GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A day after winning his NASCAR-leading seventh race of the season, 2014 NASCAR champion Kevin Harvick was in the Triad to continue a special tradition.
Harvick hosted the annual Kevin Harvick Foundation Pro-Am at Sedgefield Country Club Monday.
Each year, the event, which features PGA Tour pros and local amateurs, opens Wyndham Championship week at Sedgefield.
And, while his golf game hasn't quite caught up to his racing abilities, Harvick says he enjoys his time on the course.
"I don't know much about golf," he said. "I know that our management group has a few golfers that we represent, and that's really the best part of my golf game is being able to watch those guys play golf. For me, it's just about having a good time, and being out on a golf course is really never a bad day for me."
This year's field included players like 2008 Wyndham Championship winner Carl Pettersson, Will Zalatoris, Arjun Atwal and other PGA Tour pros.
Also in the field were 12 future pros. Students affiliated with First Tee of the Triad had the opportunity to play in this year's Harvick Pro-Am. One was Dudley High School student Marsalis Davis.
"This is an exciting opportunity for me because this is my second year," Davis said. "I get to play with professionals of the PGA Tour and have a good experience, having to see what it's like in the real golf world."
As for Harvick, his attention now returns to the NASCAR season. With three races left before the start of the playoffs, Harvick is currently ranked second in points and is now tied for 17th on the all-time wins list. He says he's enjoying all his team's success this season.
"It's been a lot of fun," he said. "And, you know, I think as you look at this particular year and the success, you just have to sit back and enjoy it. And, as things go, you just want to keep the momentum rolling."
The 2018 Wyndham Championship begins tournament play Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club. The final round is set for Sunday.
