Evolve Golf drove down the road and headed to Wallace, North Carolina for the 2019 Carolinas Pro-Assistant Championship. A multiple day event which included evening events and fun golfing events in addition to the two day rounds. A day in the mid 90’s left this double shot gun round with sunny skies for the morning shotgun and humid air for those playing in the afternoon round.
The 13th hole at River Landing was a long 556-yard par 5 which featured a narrow fairway, sand traps straight ahead and large areas of rough on both the left and right side of the fairway. Through out the morning there was no wind to be felt when standing on the tee box, however, by the second shotgun in the afternoon a steady downwind was present.
Third place finish in the TDC after ranking the distance and accuracy numbers went to Clark Rose of Walnut Creek Country Club with a 327-yard drive just 3 yards off center. Dylan Frank of Croasdaile Country Club hit a 318-yard drive just 2 yards off center as well to finish in second place. First place in the Total Driving Challenge went to Kyle Simpson of Bear Trail GC with a 328-yard bomb of the drive just 2 yards off of center of the fairway.
Evolve Golf would like to thank the Carolinas PGA and their stuff for putting on a great three-day experience. We would also like to thank PGA Professional, Larry George, and the staff at River Landing for hosting the Pro-Assistant Championship at their beautiful course and all their hard work into getting the course in such amazing shape.
Thank You to all the participants and congrats to the winners of the Total Driving Challenge.
