2016 Carolinas PGA Pro Assistant Championship

2016 CPGA Pro Asst

Early morning sunshine peaked through the pine trees in Wallace, NC for the 2016 CPGA Pro-Assistant championship. This two-person best ball competition was well attended by 154 PGA professionals from the Carolinas Section. A special thank you to Larry George and his staff who were gracious hosts as always at the beautiful River Landing Country Club.

The Total Driving Challenge was set up on the 15th hole of the River Course. Water hazards and out of bounds guarded both sides on the fairway, forcing players to make an accurate tee shot to keep it in the field of play. Relentless waves of severe thunderstorms cancelled the second round, limiting our Total Distance Challenge to the field’s first day drives.

Thank you to all the competitors and congratulations to the winners of this year’s TDC.

1st Place- William Godwin
2nd Place- Brian Sherrill

2016 Philadelphia PGA Laurel Creek Classic

2016 Philly PGA Laurel Creek Classic

Morning clouds gave way to sunshine and upper 70s at the Laurel Creek Classic in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. This individual stroke play event consisted of 100 PGA professionals in the Philadelphia section. The Laurel Creek Classic was graciously hosted by John DiMarco and his staff at Laurel Creek Country Club. Evolve Golf conducted our Total Driving Challenge on the par 4, 12th hole. The slight dog-leg played 420 yards from the championship tees and 357 from the ladies tees for the section event. The forced carry over a natural area and large bunker guarding the left side of the hole challenged the competitors to hit both a long and accurate tee shot.

Greg Matthias of Tavistock CC came in first place with a drive of 288 and on the center line. Second place went to Andrew Turner of Whitford Country Club and third place for Rick McCall at Wild Quail Golf and CC. Mike Furey from Mahoning Valley Country Club took home first place in the section event after an outstanding (-5) 66.

Evolve Golf would like to thank the Philadelphia PGA section staff for allowing us to be a supporting sponsor of the event. We would also like to thank the PGA professionals attending the event and their support Evolve Golf’s line of essential golf accessories.

1st place: Greg Matthias
2nd place: Andrew Turner
3rd place: Rick McCall

2016 Carolinas PGA Head Professional Championship Total Driving Challenge Results

2016 Carolinas PGA Head Professional Championship

Over the past couple years the CPGA Head Professionals Championship has been known to test players with cold and wet conditions. This year’s Championship was a much warmer and drier affair. Players were treated to 2 beautifully warm and sunny days at the exceptional Wexford Golf Club. Evolve Golf set up for the first leg of the 2016 Total Distance Challenge Tour on the par 4, 10th Hole. A slight helping wind both days lead to some great drives on the tight driving hole. With a drive of 300 yards, and only 3 yards off center, Mr. Billy Anderson placed third. Second place goes to Luke Lovell with a drive of 292 yards, and just 1 yard off center. Our first winner of the 2016 season is Mr. Brian Joyce, with a drive of 298 yards, and 1 yard off center. As you can see from the results, this was one of the tightest finishes we have ever had. Congratulations to the tournament winner Mr. Kelly Mitchum, and to the winners of the Evolve Golf Total Distance Challenge.

2015 Carolinas PGA Pro-Pro Championship Total Driving Challenge Results

The play conditions varied greatly from day to day for he Carolina PGA Pro-Pro in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Evolve Golf was at Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst’s Magnolia Course for our Total Driving Challenge. The eighth hole is a long and winding par 5 that called for a very precise tee shot. Day one saw a chilly, foggy day, with limited visibility, and wet conditions. Day two was much warmer, but rain moved in during the last half of the round. The final day of play was by far the coldest, but a clear sky and bright sunshine made for a beautiful day. We had great drives each day, but a few stood out among the others. On day 1 Chase Adams hit a drive of 292 yards and 2 yards off center to take third place. Also on day one Clark Rose had a drive of 293 yards and only 2 yards off line. Our winner came from day 2 when Mr. Ryan Schmidt struck a drive of 298 in the dead center of the fairway.

2015 Carolinas PGA Head Professional Championship Total Driving Challenge Results

Cold and soggy conditions could not dampen the first day of the Carolina’s PGA Head Professional Championship at the beautiful and immaculate Berkeley Hall Golf Club. The 467 yard long 18th hole played brutal host for the Total Driving Challenge. Competitor’s drives were robbed of any roll.

Day two of the championship gave us a glimmer of spring and featured much drier conditions, but the fairways still would not yield much roll.  The second to last group of the day brought out the winning drive.  Brooks Blackburn struck a laser straight drive of 290 yards that landed a half yard off the mark. Mr. Blackburn went on to win the CPGA Head Professionals Championship.  Derek Easter claimed second place with a 286 yard drive that landed 3 yards from the target and Steve Isley finished in the money with a 280 yard drive 3 yards from center.  Congratulations to all;

1st Place      Brooks Blackburn 
2nd Place     Derek Easter
