People ask us all the time about what we enjoy the most from living in Rock Hill, SC.  Well, the list is long, but one of the benefits is living near a big city such as Charlotte, NC while still living in area with a small home town feel.  Today we actually enjoyed one of the perks of living near  big city and that was the Quail Hollow Championship Golf Tournament.  What a way to spend a Wednesday.  There were thirteen of the top fifteen golfers in the world participating in this tournament and today was the always incredible Pro/Am Tournament.  One of the big highlights was watching Tiger Woods play with Peyton Manning and Charlotte's own John Harris and following Phil Mickelson.  Other ameteurs playing today included Jimmy Johnson, Julius Erving (Dr. J), Chris Berman, Michael Waltrip ...
