The Greenbrier Classic is set to tee off Thursday. Resort owner Jim Justice has been busy for months dotting the T's and crossing the I's to make sure everything runs smoothly this week. But he may just be more busy in the winter after the tournament is in the record books.
"I do love the game of basketball because it cycles so quickly," said Justice.
Justice has pulled double duty coaching the Greenbrier East girls basketball team. This year, he is taking on the task of also coaching the boys.
"We are going to do it, and we are going to do it great. It is going to be a lot of fun, and both the boys and girls are going to enjoy it. At that time of year, the Greenbrier will slow down, and we have got it really going in the right direction, and it will be a great experience for those kids," said Justice.
What's also a good opportunity for his girls and boys basketball players, is the chance to work on the course during a PGA Tour event. All of Justice's hard work seems well appreciated by his players.
"Basketball might not be his first love, but he definitely loves the sport of basketball if he is willing to coach two teams," said Nick Helmick.
And Coach Justice is also Owner Justice, who clearly has an affinity for sports, but more importantly, helping young athletes develop to their potential.
