At 7:30 pm members and guests were treated to a surprise performance from The Bryan Brothers (http://bryanbrosgolf.com), an internationally renowned duo of golf trick shot specialists that have performed at golf and charity events all over the world.

Wesley Bryan

Wesley is the big hitter of the Bryan Bros, due to what might possibly be the greatest hand eye coordination on the planet. He, like his brother, played collegiate golf at the University of South Carolina where he was a 2 time All-SEC athlete and won 2 tournaments in his collegiate career. He graduated in 2012 with a degree in retail, and currently lives with his beautiful wife Elizabeth in Augusta, Georgia where he continues to pursue his dreams of competing on the PGA Tour. He currently finds his success on the E-Golf, NGA, and Hopkins tours.

George Bryan IV

George is the eldest Bryan brother and the set up man of Bryan Bros Golf. He played collegiate golf at the University of South Carolina where he was a 3 time All-American and 3 time All-SEC. He currently holds the lowest scoring average in the history of the University’s golf team. During his tenure at South Carolina he won the EZ-GO Schenkel Collegiate Tournament, and graduated with a degree in sport management in 2010. Since leaving school, George has secured two victories as a professional golfer, and competed on both the E-Golf and Web.com tours.
