Charlottesville, Va. - This weekend the Virginia men's golf team heads to Awendaw, S.C. for its annual appearance at the Hootie @ Bulls Bay tournament that runs Sunday, March 24 through Tuesday, March 26. The 54-hole tournament is held at the par-72, 7,282-yard Bulls Bay Golf Club. The event is named for country music entertainer Darius Rucker, the former front man for the popular band Hootie and the Blowfish.
