Matt Ryan tees it up as he hosts fundraiser for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
DULUTH, Ga. -- Matt Ryan waits as his agent works on a new multi-year contract extension. On Monday he seemed more concerned for his playing partners enjoying their day at his fundraiser for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
"My focus has always been to prepare myself to play and let the other stuff take care of itself." Translation: his agent and Thomas Dimitroff talk business, updating Ryan only when necessary.
New teammate Osi Umenyiora was playing golf for the first time ever, just because Ryan asked him to come. Chipper Jones was ripping drives down the middle. The last time he hit a ball that far the guy behind him got a fastball under the chin.
Mike Kenn, Jessie Tuggle, Drew Barry, Buck Belue, Michael Haynes, Paul Assenmacher, Steve Bartkowski, Matt Bryant, Wes Durham, Brian Finneran were just some of the former Braves, Falcons and current media who were there to participate in a busy week of golf at TPC Sugarloaf.
The course will host the Greater Gwinnett Championship Friday through Sunday, with some more pro am activities leading up to Friday's first round in the Champions Tour event.
