Because of Hurricane
Harvey, PGA Touring Professional Chris Stroud was unable to fly home to Spring, Texas, which is about 20 miles north of downtown Houston, after missing the cut at The Northern Trust.
He is about the only person who hasn't been in that house the last few days.
“We had 20 people come to my house, including kids. They have been there since last Friday. They made a ton of food. I have a generator,” Stroud said on Wednesday at the Dell Technologies Championship. “We were set up for this type of thing, and not thinking we would ever use it like this, but obviously it came in handy.”
Stroud said his family and home have escaped any damage from the storm and his house has become an impromptu shelter; even Stroud's truck, which he describes as a “show truck” that's about 4 feet off the ground, has been useful in the flooding.
Stroud said his neighbourhood received about 40 inches of rain and a tornado caused damage to nearby houses.
Stroud plans to donate $10,000 and 10 percent of his winnings from TPC Boston to the relief effort.
The PGA Tour and Dell Technologies also announced on Wednesday a donation of $250,000 to help those impacted by the storm.
