Meet the Hulkas

PONTE VEDRA -

It takes a special type of person to drive more than 50,000 miles every year. But that's not the hardest part for Steve and Mary Hulka.

Together this power couple makes up Hulka Overland Players Express. In short, they are the unofficial luggage handlers of the PGA Tour. Each week, they haul their 30-foot trailer from tournament to tournament, filled with personal belongings from the golfers and they families.

The Hulkas launched the business in 2003 with just five golfers. Now, twelve years later, they have more than 50 clients.

"I love the road," said Mary Hulka. "I love our family out here on tour. We are like a traveling circus. Different venue, all the same people."
