Frost Crowned Carolinas PGA Professional Champion

(Mooresville, NC) – Charles Frost, PGA Head Professional at Old Town Club in Winson Salem, NC has won the 2017 Carolinas PGA Professional Championship. The tournament, hosted by Trump National Golf Club of Charlotte, concluded this afternoon after 54 holes of play began on Tuesday. Frost emerged as the victor after posting rounds of 69, 74 and 70 for a 3-under par total of 213 on the 7,183-yard par 72 Trump National.

With Frost’s victory comes a $9,000 first-place check and two added perks. He earns a spot in the 50th PGA Professional Championship to be held June 17-20, 2018 at Bayonet Black Horse in Seaside, CA. That championship field includes 312 of the best PGA Professional players across the country who will be attempting to finish in the top 20 and earn a bid to the 100th PGA Championship in 2018 at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri. Additionally Frost, as CPGA Professional Champion, will get his choice of an exemption into the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo or Wyndham Championship. Interestingly, it is very likely that whichever of those he does not choose, he will get into anyway as the 2017 Bob Boyd CPGA Player of the Year, as he currently leads the points standings. The Player of the Year receives the other PGA Tour exemption, so if Frost wins that award, he would play in both the Wells Fargo & Wyndham Championship.


Along with Frost, eight other Carolinas PGA Professionals qualified for the 50th PGA Professional Championship, as the Carolinas Section received nine total qualifying spots into the field. The nine total professionals are:

·          Charles Frost, PGA

·          Matt Bova, PGA

·          Neal Lancaster, PGA

·          Matt Vick, PGA

·          Josh Webb, PGA

·          Scooter Buhrman, PGA

·          Chris Haarlow, PGA

·          Steve Isley, PGA

·          Andrew Bateman, PGA

Nevada gun shows tied to firearm violence in California: study

Nevada gun shows tied to firearm violence in California: studyBy Dan Whitcomb LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Firearms-related deaths and injuries increased 70 percent in parts of California in the weeks after gun shows in neighboring Nevada, which has fewer regulations on such events, a University of California, Berkeley study released on Monday found. The research could help prevent gun deaths by charting a pattern between where weapons are purchased at gun shows and where shootings take place, according to the authors. The study, which was partly funded by the National Institutes of Health, examined firearm injury rates before and after California and Nevada gun shows between 2005 and 2013 in areas of California near the shows.
