Monday after the Masters: Celebrities hit the links in North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — It’s been a long-running tradition here along the Grand Strand, and after a two-year hiatus, Monday after the Masters is back in North Myrtle Beach.

Darius Rucker, wrestler Ric Flair, NSYNC’s Joey Fatone, and golf legend John Daly were among the celebrities, musicians and professional athletes who set out to conquer the Dye Course at Barefoot Resort and Golf in North Myrtle Beach at the Hootie & the Blowfish Monday after the Masters.

“The Pete Dye layout is a challenging golf course, which they all look forward to playing,” said Dave Genevro, GM Barefoot Resort & Golf. “Then when you get to see the celebrities that come in and mingle with everyone, it’s a really good experience.”

At this Celebrity Pro-Am, it’s not all about the swing and it’s not all about the score. It’s all about the kids.

The tournament raises money for children’s educational programs in South Carolina through the band’s charity, the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation.

“They’ve always wanted to give back to the community. It’s always been part of their lives,” Tournament Director Paul Graham said. “As they got older and had children, they started thinking about ways they could help kids.”

The big event is also a fundraiser for the South Carolina Junior Golf Association.

“It’s more than just golf,” said Biff Lathrop with South Carolina Junior Golf Association. “It’s a life-changing experience for these kids. Teaching them how to grow up and how to act when they get a little bit older and help them through their life and be successful.”

Successful, with the help of successful fundraisers, like this one.

Since its inception, the Hootie and the Blowfish Foundation has given millions of dollars to charities that benefit children.

Joey Fatone says parenting is ‘a little different’ after divorce

When Joey Fatone’s first daughter, Briahna, was born in 2001, the singer was still touring with boy band NSYNC.

“I was younger and was trying to feed my kid,” Fatone tells Yahoo Life. “The first steps and things like that, I didn’t get to witness.”

The second time around, when his daughter Kloey was born in 2010, Fatone says he was able to be more present.

“I wasn’t working as much as far as travel,” says the 45-year-old. “I really got more hands-on with it.”

Fatone says his parenting style changed again in 2019, when he got divorced from actress Kelly Baldwin after 15 years of marriage.

“It’s a little different once you get divorced,” he shares. “Now you’re on your own, per se. My advice for single parents, especially, is patience. That and, ‘Don’t do it!'”

“I’m kidding,” he says, “but people really don’t understand the negatives. People don’t understand that you have to take your kid here and there and you can’t just go out and party. They don’t understand that parents have a responsibility and they can’t just throw it away, especially when they’re on their own with their kids.”

When it comes to parenting two girls, Fatone says he and Baldwin started building an open line of communication with their daughters early on.

“I never had a live-in nanny,” says Fatone. “Normally a person of my stature would have a live-in nanny. We had babysitters, but we never had live-in nannies because guess what happens? When somebody gets hurt, who do they go to? Not Mommy. Not Daddy. The nanny.”

Fatone believes that strategy worked: His daughters, now 20 and 11, still come to him to talk about everything from homesickness while traveling to more intimate concerns.

“I could write a freakin’ book,” he jokes. “I was there the first time my little one had her ‘womanly shower,’ we will say, and that was a surprise to me and the comedy that evolved was having two iPads with my wife and my other daughter FaceTiming with my little one because it was me by myself.

“I didn’t know how to put the pad on the panties and fold it under with the sticky part,” he explains. “Picture that one: She calls me in the bathroom and I walk in and there’s blood — I didn’t know what to do.

“Mostly women are the ones who talk to their daughters about this,” he adds. “I have two daughters and when I have them, Mommy’s not around, so how do I deal with that?”

The singer and TV host, who spoke with Yahoo Life as part of his work promoting his Fatone Calzone sandwich with Schlotzsky’s, says whatever the topic, he’s learned to be as truthful with his girls as possible.

“My older one asked me once about the birds and the bees, so I kind of gave her the explanation,” he recalls. “Of course my ex was like, ‘Did you tell her she could die? She could get diseases? She could get AIDS?’ I was like, ‘No, first let’s tell her about the better things about it and then we can tell her why you’ve got to be careful.'”

Welcome to So Mini Ways, Yahoo Life’s parenting series on the joys and challenges of child rearing.

When Joey Fatone’s first daughter, Briahna, was born in 2001, the singer was still touring with boy band NSYNC.

“I was younger and was trying to feed my kid,” Fatone tells Yahoo Life. “The first steps and things like that, I didn’t get to witness.”

The second time around, when his daughter Kloey was born in 2010, Fatone says he was able to be more present.

“I wasn’t working as much as far as travel,” says the 45-year-old. “I really got more hands-on with it.”

Fatone says his parenting style changed again in 2019, when he got divorced from actress Kelly Baldwin after 15 years of marriage.

“It’s a little different once you get divorced,” he shares. “Now you’re on your own, per se. My advice for single parents, especially, is patience. That and, ‘Don’t do it!'”

When it comes to parenting two girls, Fatone says he and Baldwin started building an open line of communication with their daughters early on.

“I never had a live-in nanny,” says Fatone. “Normally a person of my stature would have a live-in nanny. We had babysitters, but we never had live-in nannies because guess what happens? When somebody gets hurt, who do they go to? Not Mommy. Not Daddy. The nanny.”

Still, Fatone says parenting girls is not for the faint of heart.

“It sucks because they’ve got your heart,” he says. “It’s bad news. That whole ‘daddy’s girl’ thing rings true.”

Fatone has a long love of cooking, having made an appearance on Food Network’s Chopped All-Stars and hosted My Family Recipe Rocks on the Live Well Network. Food is an important part of his parenting style, too.

“Italian cooking and our love of food went on from generation to generation,” Fatone says, crediting his dad for teaching him how to make family recipes like meatballs, marinara sauce and arancini — fried rice balls.

“I love to cook. because it’s exciting,” he says. “I try to come out of my comfort zone and make different things, especially when I’m with my kids. It forces you to go, ‘OK what do I have in my kitchen now? What can I make?’ And it helps them figure out what they like.”

So what advice does Fatone, who says he’ll change his name on social media to Joey Calzone for the month of February to celebrate his role of Italian ambassador to Schlotzsky’s, have for other dads?

“I’d tell any dad out there to really enjoy it,” he says. “Embrace the fun things, the silly things, the heartfelt things. Embrace it all because that’s how you navigate through life. And then as you get older, when these things come around a second time, you’ll know how to handle them.”
