Prepping for the Return of the PGA Championship to Kiawah

South Carolina Business Review logo

Eight years ago, one of golf’s four major tournaments was finally held in the Palmetto State when the PGA Championship came to Kiawah Island.  That was 2012.  Reverse those last two digits and the event will happen again in 2021, “God willing and the pandemic don’t rise again”, bringing a much needed boost to our state's economy.

Mike Switzer interviews Scott Reid, director of the 2021 PGA Championship to be held at Kiawah Island, SC, May 17-21.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
