Emergency Support for Willie Mack

Just days after having his engine replaced by a factory recall on his 2012 Kia Optima, the life of PGA Tour LatinoAmerica member Willie Mack, III was put in danger. After his engine shut off, while driving, Willie pulled off into the emergency lane on a central Florida Highway. He stayed in the driver’s seat trying to call for help, and unbeknownst to him the car caught on fire. Thankfully, a good samaritan stoped and told Willie there were flames underneath the car. In a hurry, Willie did what any tour golfer would do - he removed his clubs from the trunk and secured them. Unfortunately, before he could retrieve his luggage and other valuables, the car exploded engulfing his belongings in flames. Thank God Willie is ok and unharmed, but he is without. As traveling tour pros can attest, your car is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s also a closet, kitchen table, and sometimes a bedroom. Back up clubs, clothes, hats, golf balls, shoes, were all lost to the negligence of Kia Motors, USA. Please help me raise $5,000 for Willie in an effort to help him restore his belongings and get him back on top form for the winter season.THANK YOU ALL!Doug
