On October 30, we held an MSR and Pro Pro event at Brier Creek. Chris Finn from Par 4 Success gave a very enlightening and informative presentation on golf fitness. Following the presentation, 20 teams participated in the Skechers Pro Pro Tournament. David Nastalski and Daniel Spurling shot a very impressive round of 62. They also earned the right to represent the Triangle Area in the Global Golf Sales Par 3 Challenge to be held in Pinehurst at the end of November.

The rest of the results can be seen below:

A special thanks to Clay Garland of Skechers for his sponsorship of the event and to Matt Rink and Brent Deems at Brier Creek Country Club for running a fun and educational event.

HOPE Training Session - Nov 5

On November 5, Judy Alvarez joined numerous Carolinas Section Professionals at the Duke University Golf Club.  The day was spent learning about various challenges associated with giving golf lessons to those that have served and protected the country.  It was a tremendous learning experience and all of those that attended came away with a new appreciation for what our sport can do to help so many people.

The SAS Championship was held at Prestonwood Country Club on October 8-14. Events associated with the tournament included a 5K Road Race, a Family Day and Golf Clinic and free 5-minute lessons given by PGA Professionals to all interested spectators at the SAS Championship. The lessons were a tremendous success so a big thanks goes out to all those who participated and to Larry Conner at Prestonwood for setting up the event.
