On Saturday, May 12, the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour in partnership with the WSCGA Junior Golf Foundation plays the first South Carolina One-Day Series event of the 2018 season at The Members Club at Woodcreek in Elgin, SC.
The SC One-Day Series will include 8 One-Day tournaments in South Carolina, concluding with a two-day Series Finale at the end of the season. These events offer innovative yardage-based divisions to girls aged 9-17. The PKBGT Series Progression allows players to progress towards playing collegiate golf by playing yardage/skill appropriate tournaments as they develop their game.
One-day tournaments are designed for golfers of all skill levels, but are a great place for development golfers to “get in to the swing of things” playing tournament golf. The goal of One-Day Open Series events is to provide a fun and friendly tournament on a premium golf course. The first Middle Atlantic One-Day Series event at Augustine GC features a full field of 53 players from the PKB Girls’ Golf Tour, the nation’s largest “girls’ only” junior tour.
The Champion of the Prep Division is Cindy Song (Waxhaw, NC 2023) with a score of 4-over par 75. Finishing runner-up with a score of 79 is Jordan Guyton (Columbia, SC 2019).
