Heath Slocum Personal Notes
Contracted ulcerative colitis in November 1997 and dropped from 150 to 122 pounds. Missed the next year and one-half of golf.
In late September 2009, the Atlanta resident donated $40,000 to three charities associated with the TOUR Championship: the East Lake Foundation ($20,000), Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and the Crohn's Disease and Colitis Foundation ($10,000 each).
Played on the same high school golf team at Milton (Fla.) High School as TOUR player Boo Weekley. Bubba Watson attended the same school a couple years later.
