Career Corner - October

I am writing this month’s article from the CPGA Championship outside Charlotte, and it is always great to see the CPGA community get together for a few days of fun and fellowship. With that in mind, I hope that you have marked your calendars for the Pro –Pro Championship in Pinehurst  at the end of November and CPGA Big Week in February.

In last month’s Career Corner article I wrote about the tools available to you to help quantify and communicate your success stories to your current employer, owner, or Board of Directors. This month, I want to talk about using that information to impress your next employer, and you will do that by updating your resume to more accurately tell your story.

Frost Crowned Carolinas PGA Professional Champion

(Mooresville, NC) – Charles Frost, PGA Head Professional at Old Town Club in Winson Salem, NC has won the 2017 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship. The tournament, hosted by Trump National Golf Club of Charlotte, concluded this afternoon after 54 holes of play began on Tuesday. Frost emerged as the victor after posting rounds of 69, 74 and 70 for a 3-under par total of 213 on the 7,183-yard par 72 Trump National.

With Frost’s victory comes a $9,000 first-place check and two added perks. He earns a spot in the 50th PGA Professional Championship to be held June 17-20, 2018 at Bayonet Black Horse in Seaside, CA. That championship field includes 312 of the best PGA Professional players across the country who will be attempting to finish in the top 20 and earn a bid to the 100th PGA Championship in 2018 at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri. Additionally Frost, as CPGA Professional Champion, will get his choice of an exemption into the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo or Wyndham Championship. Interestingly, it is very likely that whichever of those he does not choose, he will get into anyway as the 2017 Bob Boyd CPGA Player of the Year, as he currently leads the points standings. The Player of the Year receives the other PGA Tour exemption, so if Frost wins that award, he would play in both the Wells Fargo & Wyndham Championship.


Along with Frost, eight other Carolinas PGA Professionals qualified for the 50th PGA Professional Championship, as the Carolinas Section received nine total qualifying spots into the field. The nine total professionals are:

·          Charles Frost, PGA

·          Matt Bova, PGA

·          Neal Lancaster, PGA

·          Matt Vick, PGA

·          Josh Webb, PGA

·          Scooter Buhrman, PGA

·          Chris Haarlow, PGA

·          Steve Isley, PGA

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.
