Carolinas PGA Officers Attend 100th PGA Annual Meeting in NYC

 

Carolinas PGA President John Marino, Vice President Paige Cribb, Secretary Bob Byrnes and Executive Director Jeff Abbot represented the Section at the 100th PGA of America Annual Meeting in New York City last week.  It was an action packed centennial celebration featuring 50 year PGA member Jack Nicklaus as the keynote speaker.  District 10 Director Rick Murphy’s bid to become the next secretary came up short, as Jim Richerson, the General Manager of Whistling Straits, prevailed over Murphy and North Florida PGA’s Russ Libby.  Highlights included Paul Levy being sworn in as the 40th President, Cary Cozby (Southern Hills CC of Tulsa, OK) receiving the PGA’s Golf Professional of the Year, Carolinas PGA Past National Presidents Gary Schall, Will Mann and Roger Warren leading the Past Presidents Forum and Derek Sprague’s Outgoing Presidents Dinner.  CLICK HERE for more information on the annual meeting.
