While much of the country is still cold and snowy, the weather in South Carolklklina was prime this past weekend for the Nextgengolf Spring Break Open. Over 70 players including 12 teams competed at the Legends Golf Resort in Myrtle Beach.
The end of round one left much unanswered, as Georgia Tech, SUNY Cortland, Delaware, and Kennesaw were all within eight shots of the lead. In the end, it was the team of Regional Coordinators that were able to finish the job, posting a team score of -4 to edge out Georgia Tech by eight.
It was a battle between teammates for best pair, with Weis and Caines edging out Martin and Stull by two shots.
Luke Stull, the Club President at University of Michigan, played on the team of Regional Coordinators. His weekend rounds really show how topsy turvy the play was.
"On Sunday I started birdie birdie, with two more birdies and an eagle later in the round. I still shot 80". While the tournament was competitive, it was also fun and relaxing for the players, who were able to bond and network with golfers from all over the country.
"The best part was hanging out with kids from other universities," said Stull. "I got to meet the group from Kennesaw State, and they were really fun to hang out with."
A special thanks to Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday who continue to support the growth of millennial golf. MBGH sponsored our Nextgengolf leaders to participate in the event through the Leaders Matter Program-- providing great opportunities for our players.
Stay tuned for week 2 of the Spring Break Open happening this Saturday and Sunday.
