Helping Hurricane Victims

Many of you have asked how you can offer your support following hurricanes Harvey and Irma. At this time, the best way to help is to donate to the PGA Disaster Relief fund. Those affected by these storms are suffering irreparable damage and devastation and will be for weeks. Please consider a donation to this fund as thousands work to get back on their feet. Every bit counts.    View More...

TOURNAMENT UPDATE

  Thankfully for our region, Hurricane Irma tracked to the west.  However, Hilton Head Island was still evacuated, and major storm surge came in.  Below is a picture of Harbour Town Golf Links’ par-3 #17.  The green was completely submerged. As a result, The Sea Pines Resort will not be able to host the Section Professional Championship this year.  The CPGA staff and Tournament Committee will be reviewing options for rescheduling on different dates at another location.  When a new site is found, we will immediately inform the field and the Section.   For those of you who set up accommodations with The Sea Pines Resort, you should be able to cancel your reservations without penalty starting tomorrow.  They are still working to get their staff and phone lines operational.   We thank the team at The Sea Pines Resort for their support and appreciate everyone’s patience during this process.   View More...

Josh Nichols Wins 93rd Carolinas Open

Amateur Josh Nichols of Kernersville, NC is champion of the 93rd Carolinas Open Presented by BB&T conducted at Bryan Park Golf & Conference Center located in Greensboro, NC. Nichols, a former member of the Appalachian State University golf team, entered the third and final round tied for third place at -4, four strokes back of amateur Grant Powell of Colfax, NC, a member of the Greensboro College golf team (-8).  However, that lead was lost when Powell played the front nine in 40 strokes (+4). Coming down the stretch, Nichols and amateur Garett Reband of York, SC, a member of the University Oklahoma golf team traded spots atop the leaderboard.  Nichols made an unfortunate but heroic bogey, draining a long putt to finish his round at 34-34=68 (-4) to total 208 (-8).  With the door wide open, Reband was unable to take advantage, giving up bogeys on both of his final two holes to post a 34-35=69 (-3) also totaling 208 (-8). The duo headed to the 18th hole, a straightaway par-4 with small segmented portions to its green surrounded by hills on all sides providing natural spectator viewing.  Both players striped drives to the center of the fairway.  Nichols tugged his approach to the back left corner of the green while the hole was back right.  Reband left his shot underneath the flag, but below a ridge.  Nichols was first to play, but his putt was extremely difficult.  It measured 51 feet up a ridge and then had about 20 feet of break left to right and down a hill.  After studying the putt from various angles, Nichols made his stroke and watched the ball roll for approximately five seconds before watching it fall in at perfect speed for birdie (CHECK OUT THE VIDEO!).  Reband gave his birdie attempt a good run, but was unable to match. With the victory, Nichols earned the champion's trophy, the amateur contest first prize of $750 in Bryan Park golf shop credit, and a lifetime exemption into the Carolinas Open. Congratulations, Josh! Photos from the event can be found here     View More...

PGA REACH Carolinas to Implement PGA Works Internship for Diversity Placement

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Aug. 2, 2017) PGA REACH, the 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation of the PGA of America—in conjunction with the Carolinas PGA Section—has selected Jessica Asbury, a 2017 Pfeiffer University graduate, for the PGA WORKS Internship program. PGA WORKS aspires to be the most valuable internship opportunity for individuals from diverse backgrounds to garner experience in all facets of the golf industry. Asbury will support programming of PGA REACH Carolinas, which serves as the philanthropic entity of the Section. The PGA of America recognizes that it will be defined by how its commitment to diversity and inclusion resonates throughout its programs and practices. This commitment is vital to the health and relevance of the Association’s business and the game overall. “All career paths start with awareness and opportunity, and providing individuals from diverse backgrounds entry into the golf industry is a priority for PGA REACH,” said Ryan Cannon, Senior Director, PGA REACH. “PGA WORKS is an important initiative, and we’re thrilled to have Jessica begin her career in golf with the PGA REACH Carolinas.” A native of Columbia, South Carolina, Asbury’s experience includes serving in various roles with the ACC Football Championship, Carolina Panthers, Kannapolis Intimidators and the Charlotte Knights for the 2016 Triple-A All-Star Festivities. Asbury recently earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management. “I’m interested in pursuing a career within the golf industry, as I enjoy the hospitality, guest relations and event management components of the PGA,” said Asbury. “I love that through golf you're able to meet a diverse network of people. Personally, I would help the PGA promote diversity and inclusion, and in five years, it’s my desire to be a part of the Carolinas PGA family—advancing the organization through increased participation, quality events and first-class customer service.” For more information on PGA REACH, visit www.pgareach.org.
