Bob Tway and Willie Wood will help out beside volunteers from University of Connecticut on a rehab project at 931 Cleveland Ave. Gulfport, MS on Thursday, March 20th.

The home is owned by Willempje Engle. Engle lives alone in her Gulfport home. Her late husband, Air Force veteran, worked on the home and was unable to finish the project.

Habitat volunteers from University of Connecticut will also be assisting on the repair work at the home as part of Collegiate Challenge, a Habitat alternative spring break program.

The scope of the project includes completing a back addition by adding windows, siding, painting and some finishing work as this space will be used for storage. Additionally, Habitat will perform weatherization efforts including caulking, weather stripping and insulation. The project is funded through a grant from the Home Depot Foundation.

Robert “Bob” Raymond Tway IV is an American professional golfer who has won numerous tournaments including eight P.G.A. Tour victories. He spent 25 weeks in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking in 1986–87. Tway was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and is a graduate of Oklahoma State University.

Willie West Wood is an American professional golfer who has 23 top-10 finishes on the P.G.A. Tour and 12 top-10 finishes on the Nationwide Tour. He won the Dick's Sporting Goods Open at En-Joie Golf Club in Endicott, New York on August 19, 2012, by defeating Michael Allen on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff for his first victory on the Champions Tour. Wood was born in Kingsville, Texas and is also a graduate of Oklahoma State University where he played alongside Bob Tway.

Both Tway and Wood are playing in the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic Presented by C Spire this weekend.
