The 2016 Season came to a close on Sunday the 13th of November with the conclusion of the Golf Week Amateur Golf Tour National Championship in Hilton Head, SC.  The Charlotte tour was represented by over 50 local members and did they make our tour proud with strong performances across the board in every flight.  With that type of play, the Charlotte tour took home the TEAM trophy for the 3rd straight year.  Charlotte’s team total of 2492 was 43 better than Arkansas who finished in 2nd. Here are the Highlights.

1st Place:             Jay Barnes

2nd Place:             Joe Jaspers

2016 National Team Cup:

In the team competition, the Charlotte, NC Tour won for the third straight year by posting a 2,492 total. That was good enough to hold off the Arkansas Tour by 43 shots at 2535.

Orlando, FL placed third at 2,541 while the Central Carolina Tour was just behind at 2,541.  The Michigan East Tour rounded out the top five with a 2,555 total.

SKINS:

Along with the individual Competition the National Championship also runs an optional skins game for each flight and again the Charlotte team did well.

The following people won skins worth $700 or more.  John Page (Friday and Saturday), Chuck Young, Ken Young, Jim Aughtry and Al Iverson.  Joe Jaspers and Charles Devenney each won $350 and James Burrell won a cool $240.  Even if you don’t play well individually there always a chance to cash in with one good swing-putt.

As many know, the National Championship took a little longer to be held due to the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.  Being on the island during this competition opened my eyes to the damage caused by the storm.  The News reports and national accounts do not allow you to see the damage that was experienced all over the island.  The cleanup continues and Hilton Head will be back to what it was is over the coming months. 

A great deal of thanks should be conveyed to Jennifer and Dennis McCormac and their team for pulling this together amongst all the chaos.  I’d like to mention a few others that many never hear about.

Tim Newman (DC Metro) who without his efforts, the intern program would not be in existence.  The interns we’re involved with a number of tasks to make the tournament run as smooth as possible.  From checking in players to entering all 600+ scores (hole by hole) into the scoring systems. 

Susan Geller (Hilton Head, Savannah) who put in countless hours with Jennifer before during and after to ensure that all money collected was accounted and dispersed correctly for all flights.  Seeing them work on Friday night to make sure everything balanced was pretty significant task.

Lastly a big thanks need to be shared with Jamy Gillan (Michigan, East and West) for his scoring system being used behind the scenes.  As many know, Jamy is behind the Live Scoring system that we used at the Southern Regional in Kiawah and at Piper Glen earlier this year.  Jamy was also instrumental in helping Dennis in securing the courses for the National Championship when the Hurricane made changes necessary.
