CPGA Jackpot Winner, David Von Canon, Takes Home $5K!
In case you missed it, David Von Canon, PGA, Head Professional at Sanford Golf Club, was the winner of the $5,000 jackpot prize at our 24th Annual Merchandise Show this year! This was the first year the Section hosted a jackpot drawing of this caliber at the annual event. In addition to this grand prize, Carolinas PGA Professionals had a chance to win several other smaller door prizes throughout the week. It’s safe to say, a lot of lucky members went home with fresh swag and smiles on their faces. A special thank you to all participants and our presenting partners Source 4, Page & Tuttle, Carolinas Golf Salesman Association, and the Greensboro Visitors Bureau, as well as all other partners who donated products to make this exciting opportunity possible.

Play for the Love of the Game
With Ed Sehl’s passing, the Carolinas PGA is reminded of his many contributions to the Section and the game of golf. One example is a DVD that was produced in 2007 to encourage our PGA Professionals to play golf because, after all, they love the game!
