A surprise guest on “American Idol”

Scotty on Idol

If you’ve been watching “American Idol” this week, you’ve probably already seen this clip of Scotty McCreery, winner of the 10th season of the show. (If not, click the photo above to WATCH!) 

We have to admit we were pretty thrilled to see the musician rocking a Pinehurst jacket featuring our Putter Boy logo, but we weren’t exactly surprised.

You see, Scotty is a big Pinehurst fan. He played Pinehurst No. 2 for the first time on U.S. Open Media Day back in 2014 and has been back several times. If you missed him singing the hook to “Carolina Moon,” you can catch it here. 

He even celebrated his 21st birthday here with a few of his best buds.

Thanks for everything, Scotty.
