PGA Jr League Section Qualifier

August 6, 2018 - Prestonwood Country Club

PGA Jr. League Section Qualifier - Prestonwood Country Club

                Today kicked off the first PGA Jr. League Section Qualifier at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC. The weather was perfect and the players made sure to take advantage of the great playing conditions. There were a total of 12 teams competing today with hopes of advancing to the Section Championship.  Team Fayetteville (Captain: Micah Vugrinec, PGA) and Team Raleigh 4 League (Captain: Brian Burgwyn, PGA) would tie for 2nd place with a total score of 98. The score of 98 would hold as the club house leader until Team Raleigh 3 League (Captain: Andy Gregory, PGA) would fire a 94 team total. One of the pairings within the Raleigh 3 League would shoot a -8 under 28! (Players: Daniel McBrien and Nicolas Goellner). Goellner and McBrien high-fived each other as they looked at their score being posted on the scoreboard, realizing they had secured the title.

                Captain Gregory stated “I am so proud of these guys. They worked really hard and it’s good to see it finally pay off." Gregory and his team will advance to the PGA Section Championship at Mid Pines Inn and Golf Club on August 22, 2018. Good luck to Captain Gregory and his team as they take on the other top teams in the Section at the Section Championship.  We thank Prestonwood Country Club and their staff for hosting such a great event!
