The free breakfast, a Masters Week tradition sponsored by the Greater Augusta Fellowship of Christian Athletes, starts at 7 a.m. Tuesday at Warren Baptist Church.

Baddeley, 30, has competed in the Masters Tournament six times. His best finish came in 2009, when he tied for 17th.

This year’s event is expected to draw more than 1,000 golf fans for a free Southern-style breakfast buffet and hourlong program.

The Greater Augusta FCA is pleased to have Baddeley speak “not so much because of his ranking and the terrific year he’s had on the PGA Tour, but because of his being completely unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Greg Wilson, the area director of the organization.

“‘Badds’ has demonstrated his faith numerous times in television interviews while playing on the PGA Tour, and it’s always enjoyable to see the impact a guy with his tremendous character will have on a crowd like the one we get to enjoy each year at the breakfast,” Wilson said.
