Carolinas PGA Section championship set for Daniel Island Club
The Carolinas PGA Section championship will be played Tuesday-Thursday at Daniel Island Club’s Beresford Creek course.
A cut to the low 60 and ties will be made for the final round of the 54-hole tournament, which is open to spectators.
The tournament previously has been played at Daniel Island Club in 2007 and 2008. In addition to a cash prize, the winner also automatically qualifies for one of the two 2013 PGA Tour events played in the Carolinas — the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island or the Wyndham Champion in Greensboro, N.C. — and one of 10 qualifying spots for the 2013 PGA Professional National Championship.
