Hurricane Florence Impact Assistance

First and foremost, we hope you, your family and loved ones are safe from the effects of Hurricane Florence.   Team members from our staff and the PGA of America, made over 200 phone calls yesterday to members and associates in affected areas to check on their well-being and safety, and to assist with any necessary relief support.  Thankfully we did not hear of any personal injuries or loss of life.  Many are still evacuated and hope to return to their homes later this week when the roads clear.  Most that were contacted did not have major personal loss, however, a few suffered massive flooding at their homes.  We fear those that evacuated will return to the heaviest hit areas.

Brad Luebchow claims 2018 Nat'l Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship

(Greensboro, NC) – The 2018 National Car Rental Carolinas Assistant PGA Professional Championship is complete. We lucked out with a sunny day at Starmount Forest CC and many good rounds. All players were vying for one of the six qualifying spots for the 42nd National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship, to be held November 15-18 at PGA Golf Club’s Wannamaker Course in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Dominating the course today and winning this year’s championship was Brad Luebchow, Assistant Professional at Maple Chase G&CC.

Steve Scott Wins the 2018 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship

(Hilton Head Island, SC) – The 2018 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship is complete, here at Sea Pines Resort. Players competed for the title on a gorgeous day at Harbour Town Golf Links and there was plenty of nail-biting competition among everyone.

Coming out victorious in this prestigious event is Steve Scott who finished his 54-holes at 2-under par. Scott, from The Outpost Club, was not far from the top of the leaderboard after the first and second rounds of play. He fought hard through the tough conditions yesterday and proceeded to hold steady in today’s final round, shooting +1 to hold him above the rest of the field. “I tried to bogey myself to death in the last few holes but I made enough birdies to offset it and it worked out,” said Scott, when reflecting on his round. “The shot that really put me over the edge was on the 17th hole. I hit an 8-iron from 172 to about 6 inches; that really helped.”

Jerry Haas Holds Lead to Win 94th Carolinas Open

Greensboro, NC – The final round of the 94th Carolinas Open at Starmount Forest Country Club is complete. It was a beautiful day for the 60 players who made the cut to compete for the title at this prestigious event.

PGA Professional, Jerry Haas, the head golf coach of Wake Forest, has come out on top and won our longest running CPGA major event. Haas held the lead all three days and had a great jumpstart to the event, shooting 8-under-par in the first round of play. While he shot even-par in the second round, it still kept him ahead of the field with the trophy in sight. Today, the mindset to “get off with a great start,” proved successful for him as he did just that and kept it up for the entirety of the round to finish at 11-under-par for the 54-hole event. When reflecting on his final round, Haas said “I was trying not to get ahead of myself and I did a pretty good job with that.” With some special mojo on the field from his uncle, Bob Goalby’s, win in the 1958 Greensboro Open on this course, Haas stretched ahead of the field and never turned back. “It was my week.”
