Play for the Love of the Game
With Ed Sehl’s passing, the Carolinas PGA is reminded of his many contributions to the Section and the game of golf. One example is a DVD that was produced in 2007 to encourage our PGA Professionals to play golf because, after all, they love the game!

Armistead & Sumner Win 27th Charles Tilghman Junior Championship
Myrtle Beach, SC – Connor Armistead (Charlotte, NC) and Kathleen Sumner (Charleston, SC) are the Boys’ and Girls’ Overall Champions of the 27th Charles Tilghman Carolinas PGA Junior Championship held at the par-71 Grande Dunes Members Club in Myrtle Beach, SC.
After opening the tournament with a 3-under (68) and in a tie for first place, Armistead (17) closed out the victory in the Overall Boys’ division with a 1-under par (70) for a total of 138 (-4). Armistead played a smart round, doing what he needed to maintain his lead with two birdies and only one dropped shot in his final round. Stephen Carroll (17) of Concord, NC and Drew Weary (16) of Bluffton, SC finished tied in second with both players finishing at 139 (-3). Carroll had five birdies in his final round of 2-under (69) while Weary finished his final round with three birdies and an even par (71).
Sumner (17) of Charleston, SC took the Overall Girls’ championship after a two-hole playoff with overnight leader Gracyn Burgess (16) of Lexington, SC. They each finished the championship at 142 (E). After both players made par on the first hole (#10) of the playoff, Sumner and Burgess found the fairway on the 11th. On the approach, both competitors found themselves just off the green and looking to save par which Sumner was able to convert. Sumner had three birdies, one bogey, and one double bogey in her final round while Burgess had an up-and-down round with five birdies, two double bogeys, and two bogeys.
