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.

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.”

Thank You and Farewell

It is bittersweet that I announced my departure from the Carolinas PGA as Media and Promotions Director. My time with the PGA has been wonderful and I've made many amazing connections that I know will last a lifetime. However, the time has come for me to embark on a new journey. 


It was truly a pleasure being able to help grow the Section in the capacity that I did since my arrival but, it's been even more of a pleasure being able to work alongside such a wonderful staff, membership, board of directors, and array of partners. 


Best of luck to you all! Keep golfing and taking advantage of all the amazing resources available to you through your Section - BIG WEEK IS COMING and, boy oh boy, are there some good surprises coming your way. 

It was an honor serving you!
 

- Liz

Carolinas PGA Intern Heads to South Florida PGA Section


It's bittersweet that we announce the departure of Carolinas PGA Tournament Intern, Michelle Goda. Goda, an aspiring PGA Professional with a Bachelors of Business Administration from the PGA Golf Management Program at Eastern Kentucky University, first joined the Section 9 months ago and has assisted the tournament team with an array of events and initiatives throughout the year. Additionally, Michelle always lent a hand to other staff members in need throughout the office whenever she could and with a  big ol' smile on her face. 

It has been a true pleasure having her as part of the team the past several months and she will be missed by all as she embarks on her new adventure to the South Florida PGA Section as Foundation Coordinator. Thursday, October 26, 2017 will be her final day here at CPGA HQ. If you wish to keep in touch, you can connect with Michelle on LinkedIn!

While it will be hard to see her go, we are wishing her the absolute best of luck in her new endeavors down south. Go get 'em, Goda!
