Congratulations to our 2 - 2023 National Champions from Charlotte!
Joe Jaspers - Champ Flight
In the Championship Flight, Joe Jaspers won an unprecedented seventh National Championship in a sudden-death playoff over Lance Lacombe. Jaspers opened the tournament on Friday at Robert Trent Jones with a three-under-par round of 69 and a two-shot lead over Chad Frank. The Robert Trent Jones course belonged to Elliott Johnson on Saturday when he fired a four-under-par round of 68 and took a one-shot lead over Jaspers heading into the final round. The stage was set for a shoot-out on Sunday and the flight leaders did not disappoint! Lance Lacombe started the day four shots back but made-up ground on the back nine with an eagle on 15 and birdie on 16 resulting in the low round of the weekend (a five-under-par score of 67). Jaspers hung tight and birdied the fifteenth to tie Lacombe at three-under-par. On seventeen (par 3), Jaspers hit the ball to ten feet and power-lipped it out for the lead. At the end of the day, Jaspers and Lacombe both finished the 54-hole tournament at three-under-par and landed in a sudden death playoff on hole 18. Jaspers hit a perfect shot to about 6 feet and then followed it by sinking the birdie putt to become the 2023 National Champion. It was the second year in a row that Lance Lacombe finished solo second.
Eric Whitworth - A Flight
In the A Flight, we had a back nine battle all day between Eric Whitworth and Wayne Fisher at Golden Bear GC in Indigo Run. The two dueled it out until Whitworth finally won by only one shot on the final hole. Whitworth fired a 75 while Fisher posted an even par (72) and lost by just one stroke. Whitworth now has the pleasure of being the 2023 A Flight National Champion.

- For those that are new to the tour, let me outline a few of the nuances to the Charlotte events.
- Most Charlotte events are SHOTGUN starts, meaning everyone will leave the clubhouse at the same time and head out to their starting holes where play will begin.
Your Tour Membership package will be emailed to you before your first local tournament you play in you will be able to choose from items in the online store ($50 credit).
We utilize Live Scoring in all events. Not only can you track your progress against the field during the event, but so can your family and friends, no matter where they are.
Side Cash Games. These are all optional.
- Each flight will have a seperate pot.
- If there are less than 10 players playing at an event in the division, 2 divisions may be combined.
- All Flights combined ($10 entry)
- Polies: (All Flights combined) ($5 entry) Example 100 entries at $5 a piece = $500 in prize fund. 5 people hit within the flagpole (appx 7') they split the total purse, $100 each.
Playing - Other Tour Events.
The ability to play on any AGT tour event across the country is a great benefit. If you play an outside event, points will automatically be added to your total for up to 4 events. Please refer to pages 17-18 of the Tour Manual for complete details on playing outside events.
