2016 PGA Scholarship Winners

Nine from Carolinas Section Granted Monies

The PGA of America recently selected its 2016 National PGA Scholarship Section winners and we are thrilled to announce that nine CPGA member-affiliated students were selected to receive scholarships. The PGA Financial Assistance Fund Scholarship Program was established in 1986 to provide college scholarships for graduating high school seniors and college students who are the children or grandchildren of a PGA member. It is an academic based scholarship program that takes into account the following criteria depending on the class level of the student:
 

High School Graduating Senior:
- High School cumulative grade point average (GPA) must be at least 3.4 on a 4.0 scale
- ACT and/or SAT test scores
- Extracurricular activities

 

Current College Student (has not reached senior year)
- College cumulative GPA must be at least a 3.4 on a 4.0 scale
- Most recently completed college semester or quarter GPA
- Extracurricular activities

 

Four winners from the high school category and five from the college category, with Carolinas PGA Section affiliations, were granted scholarship funding. Among these individuals, two candidates were awarded the John Cox Scholarship - $5,000 and seven were awarded the National Scholarship - $2,000.

Carolinas PGA Global Golf Sales Area Challenge Finals

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Carolinas PGA Global Golf Sales Area Challenge Finals presented by Bionic, Maui Jim and Sterling Cut Glass.  Given the effects of Hurricane Matthew, we truly appreciate everyone’s effort to join us for this special event.  Congratulations to the Area VII winning team of Derek Watson, Bob Byrnes and Jason Toryk who fired an impressive 50 point total in this modified stableford scoring event with 12 birdies and an eagle!  

 

 

Some Helpful Info for Hurricane Matthew

Carolinas PGA Professionals:

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Matthew as this storm moves in this weekend.

For those bracing for Matthew, we’ve made some
helpful information available regarding golf course preparedness – a plan produced by Ron Hickman, PGA, post Hurricane Katrina. We share this now in hopes that it may help those PGA Professionals in the path of Hurricane Matthew as it makes landfall.

Additionally, PGA Members who are impacted and may suffer personal loss, for which they will have un-reimbursed out of pocket expenses, the PGA Disaster Relief Fund may be able to provide assistance. Please contact the PGA Headquarters Membership Department at 800-474-2776 if you need more information.

Best of luck to all during this sensitive time,

Carolinas PGA Section HQ

 

Thank You Patriot Golf Day Supporters!

 

Nazareth Captures CPGA Professional Championship


(Wilmington, NC) - Savio Nazareth emerged as the winner of the 2016 Carolinas PGA Section Professional Championship held at Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, NC.

Early during the morning of the third and final round, play was suspended due to dangerous weather.  Unfortunately, the tournament was unable to resume play despite a valiant effort by CC of Landfall's maintenance staff.  The remnants of Tropical Storm Julia threw multiple cells of rain and lightning at the coastal town of Wilmington throughout the day.  Teeing grounds, fairways, bunkers, and putting greens were under mass amounts of water.  It was eventually determined that if it did stop raining, the course would require too much maintenance to allow for even a reduced nine-hole stipulated round.  As a result, the final round was canceled, and the championship was based on 36 holes.  However, the Committee held a number of competitors behind to hopefully conduct a few playoffs later.

After two rounds, Nazareth, a PGA Assistant Professional at Starmount Forest CC in Greensboro, NC, and PGA Teaching Professional James Stewart of Old North State Club in New London, NC, shared the lead at 141 (-3).  A window in the weather system was found, and some course preparation allowed the championship to be finished using the 432-yard 13th hole.  Stewart got in trouble off the tee, finding a large area of casual water.  After taking relief, he hit his approach short right of the green guarded by a tall oak tree on the left.  Nazareth, who was positioned on the right side of the fairway, then threw his shot to approximately 18 feet past the flag.  Stewart's pitch came up 20 feet short.  Still being away, he narrowly missed his par putt, leaving the door open for Nazareth, who calmly two-putted for the victory.

The importance of this win was obvious when Nazareth immediately broke into tears as Stewart congratulated his fellow competitor.  Not only did Nazareth earn the title of "Carolinas PGA Professional Champion," the first place prize of $10,000, a beautiful crystal, and a framed championship flag, he also earned an exemption into either the PGA Tour's 2017 Wells Fargo Championship or Wyndham Championship.
