Professional Golf

This is a huge week for golf, simply because of the US Open. It’s probably my second favorite tourney of the year. Everything about it is great.

Something else happened this week in the world of golf that is even more special, to me anyway, than the US Open. A young man from middle Georgia won his first professional golf event when he shot a collective -10 at Carolina Lakes Golf Club as part of the Carolina Summer Series on the Hooter’s Tour.

Joe Young, a recently turned pro, won in his 3rd event since turning pro. Joe played four years at GC&SU, winning several honors there including All American. A native of Cochran, GA, Joe currently calls Cuscowilla his home course,  though Uchee Trail is where he learned the game.

If you enjoy golf I’d encourage you to follow the Hooter’s tour. There are some exceptional golfers out there grinding it out every week, and Joe is one of these. Here’s to wishing Mighty Joe all the best the rest of the year and beyond.

    Hey y’all should come to Hawkinsville the first week in August for the ComSouth Classic. Maybe Joe will be able to get another Hooters’ Tour victory at Southern Hills. I will keep an eye out for him since I typically volunteer a few days and play in the Pro-Am as my company is the title sponsor.

    I will definitely be there watching and pulling for him. Neat that you get to help out…I’ve always enjoyed getting over to SH and watch that event; y’all really do a great job of putting that tourney together.
