Pro Golf Fans Return to SC

South Carolina Business Review logo

If you are a sports enthusiast, you’ve probably noticed that fans have been attending professional golf tournaments again. And that trend will continue when the PGA Tour returns soon to South Carolina, bringing with it a much-needed economic impact.

Mike Switzer interviews Steve Wilmot, tournament director for the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing coming to Hilton Head Island, SC April 12-18.

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.
