In Loving Memory of Nate Clark, PGA

Evolve Golf Mourns the Loss of Nate Clark, PGA.
The Evolve Golf family lost a deeply valued and loved member of our team December 7, 2021 in a tragic multivehicle car accident returning home from the from the Georgia PGA Pro-Pro tournament in Sea Island.
Nate had been a Carolinas PGA Member since graduating Clemson University in 2016. In a matter of just three years, Nate skyrocketed up the ranks at Evolve Golf, beginning as a Level 3 Apprentice and culminating in his promotion to Director of Sales in 2019. Nate was instrumental in the growth of Evolve Golf as both a company and section partner over the past six years. Beyond his professional achievements, Nate was a mentor to all that knew him. During his spare time, Nate would spend his afternoons volunteering at The First Tee Program, teaching the game he so dearly loved to the next generation. Nate’s passion for the game and business of golf was unparalleled and he will be dearly missed by all. Please join the Carolinas PGA and Evolve Golf in keeping the Clark family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
