Davis Love III calls St. Simons Island, Ga., home.

Living on the coast, he's no stranger to hurricanes. But, it's not often that a storm as powerful as Hurricane Irma batters through like it did. Conditions are so poor in that area, that evacuees weren't allowed to start going back until today.

Love, a PGA Champion, two-time Ryder Cup USA Captain and 21-time PGA Tour winner, is doing his part to help where he can.

On Wednesday, the famous St. Simons BBQ joint Southern Soul BBQ, posted a photo of Love manning one of the smokers, preparing food for first responders:

Just a couple of weeks back, Love also sent boxes filled with clothes down to Houston for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
