3 time champ Joe Murray and John "Hootie" Placek

In 2003 three aspiring golfers: John Placek, Wayne Reisner and Joe Murray accompanied a traveling golf club on their annual trip to Myrtle Beach.

Tensions amongst the club elevated when players were concerned about someone not playing by the rules. This resulted in a surprise meeting in a condo at Brunswick Plantation. This is the moment when John "Hootie" Placek suggested we begin our own trip.

John joined another group on a trip to Ocean City. That group played a game called "Magic 36" to win a green jacket. This sparked the beginning of the Hack Master Golf Tournament.

John found the perfect green jacket and Joe designed a breast pocket patch in the likeness of The Masters logo. John booked our first trip to Brunswick Plantation and the Hooties Hackers Golf Club and Hack Masters Golf Tournament was born.

Hooties Hackers Golf Club is a group of friends sharing a relaxing week long vacation. The club origionally stayed at Brunswick Plantation in North Carolina every June. The trip is usually relaxing and friendly until the tournament begins. The tournament is "The Hack Masters Golf Tournament". The Hack Masters Golf Tournament consists of six days of tournament play for the opportunity to claim "The Green Jacket" for one year. The winner gets their name embroidered on the jacket, a trophy, their name on "Hooties" plaque, and most importantly bragging rights for one year.
