The breakfast is an annual tradition and draws about 1,000 people each year.

It will be held at 7 a.m. April 8 at Warren Baptist, 3203 Washington Road.

While this will not be the first year two or more golfers have spoken at the event, it will be the first time these two have shared the podium, said Greg Wilson, area director of the Greater Augusta FCA.

“They’re also going to hang around and sign copies of a book they co-authored,” he said. “We rarely have speakers who are planning to hang around afterward. Normally they are out the back door and to the range.”

Cink spoke at the breakfast in 2002 and again in 2008. He is originally from Alabama and now lives in Duluth, Ga. The 41-year-old qualified for the Masters Tournament through his win at the 2009 British Open.

Johnson shared his faith in 2002, and was interviewed by his wife, Kim, Wilson said.

“They had a different way of doing it,” he said.

Past speakers have included Michael Thompson, 1987 Masters winner and Augusta native Larry Mize, Ben Crane and broadcaster Pat Summerall.

The breakfast is free. For more information, visit greateraugustafca.org.
