October 1, 2018

(Charlotte, NC) October 1, 2018 – It was a beautiful day at Charlotte Country Club for the Inaugural Harvick4Heroes PGA REACH Charity Pro-Am! The venue was perfect for the 18 teams and there was nothing but smiles and fun had by all.

The Kevin Harvick Foundation and PGA REACH Carolinas have partnered for this inaugural event and are excited to establish this long standing relationship for years to come for this great cause. All proceeds benefited the Kevin Harvick Foundation and the PGA REACH Carolinas Foundation.

Congratulations to our winning team with PGA Professional, Josh Wagaman and Ralph Borrello, Brent Martin, Jason Howard & Len Lopez who had a team score of 120 in this Shamble format. Coming in second place with a score of 121 was PGA Professional, Dan O’Boyle, and his team of Colby Lewis, Zazck Forster, Brenton Bersin & Jonathon Wylie. Rounding out the top three teams with a score of 122, keeping those top three scores very close, was PGA Professional, Hugh Matthis and his Forest Creek GC team of Ed Kinney, Link Melley, Andy Burnette & Bob MacWhinnie. Great playing and comradery by all players and teams!

Following play, all participants had the chance to mingle among a silent auction and bid on two top-notch live auction items. Thanks to Kevin Harvick and his team, there was a decked out, E-Z-GO RXV up for grabs. The PGA REACH Carolinas team offered an Ultimate PGA Championship Experience for the 2019 PGA Championship taking place at Bethpage Black Course in New York City, NY.

There were many sponsors who were scattered around the course, providing food and drinks for players for even more excitement along the way. A huge thank you to Hunt Brother’s Pizza, Outback Steakhouse, Jack Daniels, Scotty Cameron Putters, and Mobipaid for setting up on the course and providing wonderful amenities for the players during their round!

The two foundations are excited to share nearly $100,000 raised from the event to support both wonderful causes! The Carolinas PGA gives a tremendous thank you to all who played in the event to show their support, as well as the numerous, generous sponsors who provided support and great perks throughout the day. We also thank Head PGA Professional, Andrew Shuck, and his entire staff at Charlotte Country Club for the wonderful generosity and hospitality for hosting this inaugural event!
