Career Corner - December

With my final newsletter article of 2017, I thought it would be a good idea to look back at the year (from my eyes), and more importantly, look forward to the coming year. It is difficult for me to believe that I have been in this position as your Career Consultant for almost six months, and I can honestly say that I think that I have the best job in the Carolinas.   In those six months, I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with many of you both at CPGA events and your facilities. Meeting PGA Members and Apprentices has been the highlight of my year, and the relationships I have formed with many of you are what make me most proud as I reflect on 2017. It is my opinion that the Carolinas PGA is the best Section in the country, and that is due to the quality of our Members and Apprentices and the guidance provided by Section leadership and the staff at CPGA Headquarters.   Looking forward to 2018, I have several goals that are focused on creating relationships with PGA Members and Apprentices and providing all of you with a range of services that you perceive as valuable.  View More...

PGA Jr. League National Championship Recap

The 6th PGA Jr. League Championship presented by National Car Rental showcased some amazing golf, as Georgia (Duluth) took an early 3 ½ to ½ lead through the first three holes and then held on tight, as New Jersey (Hillsborough) rallied back into serious contention.   This is the second title for a Georgia-based team (Atlanta in 2013).   With the final group watching from the tee on the ninth and final hole played (par 5, 465-yard Hole No. 18), the Georgia team of William Love, 14; Harris Barth, 13; and Strug’s nephew Lucas Jinglov, 13, earned a conceded birdie to seal a half-point, and clinch the match. Moments later, their Georgia teammates rushed the green, realizing they had secured a hard-fought national title.   “It was really fun,” said Jinglov. “The way we’ve been treated and everything that’s been done for us... It’s been a great experience overall.”   The Georgia team was on the green in two, before Barth and Love both missed their eagle putt, leaving a short putt for the Championship. Showing tremendous sportsmanship, the New Jersey team of Katie Li, 12; Megan Meng, 11; and Adrian Jordan, 11, conceded the match.   “It means a lot to the team,” said Team Georgia Captain Patrick McCrary, a PGA Professional at TPC Sugarloaf near Atlanta. “They worked hard to get here, and it’s been a long road. We couldn’t be more happy for these kids.”   View More...
