Career Corner - September

The calendar tells me that we have hit Fall, which means football season and shorter days. Here in the Carolinas, it also means the beginning of the end of the season for the majority of the facilities in the section. I hope everyone had a successful season, and I want to use this article to discuss the importance of communicating your success stories to your manager, owner, or Board of Directors. Regardless of your role at your facility, there is a need for regular communication of financial information, successes for you and your staff, and upcoming challenges.
 

The PGA offers tools to help you quantify and communicate your successes by using the Revenue Scorecard and the Golf Operations Executive Summary.  Both are simple to use an easily accessible on PGA.org, or simply click the links above (and login with your PGA.org password).

Skirpstas Takes Win at National Car Rental CPGA Assistant Championship

PGA Apprentice Peter Skirpstas of Jacksonville Country Club is the champion of the National Car Rental Carolinas Assistant PGA Professional Championship presented by Srixon/Cleveland/XXIO conducted at Prestonwood Country Club located in Cary, NC.

Skirpstas, the low professional at the Carolinas PGA’s 2017 North and South Carolina Opens began his second round two strokes behind the leader, Ray Franz of Daniel Island Club (-4). Both players began their rounds on the hardest starting hole of the PGA Champions Tour, the Highlands Course’s number one hole. The weather conditions did not make it any easier. However, up to 10 mph winds and constant drizzle did not stop Skirpstas from firing 33-34= 67 (-5) and winning the event with a cumulative score of 137 (-7). Franz finished with a day two score of 35-35=70 (-2) and a total 138 (-6).

Skirpstas and four other Carolinas PGA Professionals qualified for the 41st National Car Rental  Assistant PGA Professional Championship to take place November 9-12 at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, FL. Those advancing along with the champion include: Ray Franz of Daniel Island Club (-6), Aaron Black of Edgewater Golf Club (-2), Savio Nazareth of Starmount Forest Country Club (-1), and Tommy Gibson of Old Town Club (E).

In addition to the five players with secured positions, four alternates for the national competition were determined.

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!

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.”
