Adam Sperling, executive director for the Presidents Cup, moved his family to Charlotte and spent more than three years promoting and selling the biennial competition being played in the Queen City. He got to know as well as anyone just how important hosting a world-class event that would be shown around the world meant to the good people at Quail Hollow Golf Club. That starts with Johnny Harris, the club’s president, who sets the tone with his big personality. “There is a quote,” Sperling says, “Everything’s impossible until it’s done, and there is nothing that these two men (Johnny and son Johno Harris) and the members of Quail Hollow and this community sees as impossible.”
Harris and son Johno, general chairman of the 2022 Presidents Cup, took time out of a busy day at the Presidents Cup on Saturday to participate in a Rolex roundtable discussion with several writers, including Golfweek. Here are excerpts from the Q&A.
