Country Club of North Carolina shines during U.S. Junior Am By DAVID DROSCHAK


t’s unclear when the next United States Golf Association championship will be staged at Country Club of North Carolina, but it’s likely to be sooner than later after the club’s nearly flawless showing during the U.S. Junior Amateur in late July. CCNC hosted more than 250 of the world’s best junior golfers and their families and was provided a glimpse of what the potential of future championships might mean for the private club in Pinehurst. “Our strategic plan is to constantly test the golf courses with national championships, and very specifically USGA national championships,” said Don Hunter, the club’s chief operating officer. “I do foresee us announcing something in the future. Right now, I don’t know what it would be, but we are happy to engage with the USGA moving forward.” It doesn’t hurt that the USGA will soon be moving offices to the Sandhills with CCNC less than a five- minute drive. Hunter is no stranger to national championships, having been associated with nine during his golf career at various locations. “For my staff and I it’s always a chance to up our game,” Hunter said. “Every time I’ve executed a national championship I’ve seen major growth in every aspect of the club’s staff, where a food and beverage program that is used to serving 500 people at a time all of the sudden is doing 3,000-4,000 meals in a week. Those kinds of things change their abilities going forward and it’s just a lasting, lingering positive effect.” CCNC is a natural fit for such a largescale championship, considering it has 36 holes of golf with the Dogwood and Cardinal courses. The Dogwood is ranked

ew golfers – outside of Tiger Woods – have had a more successful junior career than Jason Widener. The Greensboro native won more than 50 junior tournaments, including the U.S. Junior Amateur, was the No. 1 ranked junior player in the country for two years in the late 1980s and became one of just two three-time All-ACC golfers at Duke. Unlike Woods, Widener never hit the big time. He did play in more than 30 NIKE Tour events, won six mini-tour events and logged a season on the PGA European Tour in 1996. But unlike some of his junior rivals -- players such as Jim Furyk and David Duval -- a PGA Tour win was never in the cards, let alone a major championship. And after the dust settled, Widener was at peace with how his golf career went down, settling into college coaching at his alma mater and then UNC-Wilmington. He would follow his passion in the martial arts and launch a successful teaching profession – Widener Golf Instruction – where he tutors some of the state’s top players. “The client who usually finds me has gotten a little stuck, it’s usually a good player who has hit the wall and wants to get better,” Widener said. “That’s fun for me and where my skill set and background and the way I approach teaching works best. There are so many great instructors that teach people the game, but I sort of step in much later in the process, where my skill set functions best. I have junior golfers trying to play in college, some younger like 13-14 years old who are starting to realize they are serious about golf, and I also have a number of mini tour and Korn Ferry golfers. When they start to struggle and think ‘that’s as good as I’m going to get place’ I try to open more doors for them.” Despite his love for the teaching profession, it appears, after turning 50 this past spring, that Widener has yet to close to door on competitive professional golf. He said he would have gone to Champions Tour Q-School last year but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. Widener is again gearing up for an opportunity this fall to attempt to land a position on a tour that is arguably the most difficult to secure with only five spots available. Is it a longshot? Sure, but don’t be so quick to dismiss Widener’s chances. He qualified for the PGA Tour Wyndham Championship in 2017 in his hometown of Greensboro, and while he missed the cut Widener carded rounds of 73 and 68, and just this past month at the U.S. Junior Amateur site for media day, Widener shot Continued on page 7

Widener from page 6 67 and 69 on the Country Club of North Carolina Dogwood and Cardinal courses. “For me, coaching is the No. 1 priority, but the more I play I feel the better coach I become, so I’m trying to find that balance between competing and the work I do as a coach,” Widener said. “They go together nicely, but I’m definitely putting as much energy into my personal game as I can. “Some days, yes, it feels like I’m 50,” he added. “But I have always been involved in the game, always coaching or teaching, and I had put my personal game on the shelf. During that period, I was involved in martial arts and some other things that were important to me, but I had some moments of real clarity about technique, things that maybe have happened in my own, personal experience with golf that became really clear, so now that time has come to where I want to apply it to myself. I’ve found that it has been a fun process and I have a lot more joy. I’ve always enjoyed practicing, I enjoyed playing, so I guess I’ve always been a little bit more of an artist in the game, and that part is coming back. My game is showing flashes of being quite good.” Widener teaches out of Mill Creek in

Mebane and River Landing in Wallace. It was while coaching at UNCW that Widener became friends with River Landing director of golf and GM Larry George, a top player in his own right on the Carolinas PGA circuit. George plays a round of golf with Widener every two weeks and sees professional promise. “I love watching him hit balls and my golf game is better because of playing with him,” George says of Widener. “He is as fabulous as he has always been – just a great ball striker. “I don’t know what the weakness is if he has one,” added George. “Jason looks at the swing differently than most instructors do. He believes the center of the swing is as important as anything and whenever you maintain certain swing values you are always going to make a good swing. For him to hit a bad shot is just 20 feet offline. That sound of solid contact is always there. I truly believe he’s the best ball striker I’ve ever been around.” Widener calls the Champions Tour dream something that is “fun to look towards.” “I’ve always directed my competitiveness internally, so I’ve always tried to pursue some sort of excellence in golf, so for

me having something focus on brings that personal part back and I like that,” he said. “I’m not sure how to frame professional golf again. It was a re-introduction at the Wyndham a few years ago and I’m not sure where it’s all going to go. I am just engaged in the process and trying to get better and see how good I can get again. I am in a very different place in life now

and have done different things. I probably have a different perspective in relationship to professional golf right now and I am going to try to honor that and enjoy it.” Widener’s love for the martial arts and a stint as a wellness professor at UNCW have kept him fit. “It’s interesting to see which guys have been playing all these years, who took time off, and was that helpful or hurtful to their golf games,” Widener said. “I’ve had a couple of friends who have played the whole time that have pointed that out. I am just going to roll with it. The good news is the pursuit of my own game and seeing how good I can get again is fun to me, challenging to me.” George, for one, believes Widener has an opportunity to beats the odds. “For anybody it’s a longshot, but if I was in Las Vegas betting I would bet 100 percent on him,” George said. “He knows he’s good enough and is as good a ball striker as anybody out there on the PGA Tour or Champions Tour. I believe he believes in himself. God, he can play the game. Many times when we play he’s 6 under after six holes. When I play a good round and things click it’s still a fight … but it looks like he’s never fighting it at all. He’s that good.”

Expect longer rough to add new test to Wyndham Championship contenders By DAVID DROSCHAK


oing low has been the rule at the Wyndham Championship since moving to Sedgefield Country Club rather than the excep-

tion, with winning scores regularly at 20-under-par or better. The last five Greensboro winners have broken that barrier with Brandt Snedeker firing an opening round 59 in 2018 and last year’s champion Jim Herman carding a final 36-hole record with rounds of 61 and 63.

Low scores are fun for the fans, but it appears McConnell Golf founder John McConnell wants his Donald Ross classic to provide more teeth for the PGA Tour players coming to the Triad in mid August. “This year we’re managing our rough a little bit differently,” said Sedgefield head golf professional Rocky Brooks. “It is going to be a little tougher test than in years past. There is going to be thicker, deeper rough, especially in the driving areas and around the greens, so if a player does miss a shot off the tee or around the green expect a more difficult time. The scores are going to be higher than in years past.” Long Bermuda rough in the summer in North Carolina can provide some brutal penalties, and especially at Sedgefield with players facing the challenging Ross greens. “We don’t want anybody shooting 59 again,” Brooks said. “When somebody shoots 59 on your golf course sometimes

the golf course can lose credibility, but the players are so good these days they can shoot these low numbers on these old-school golf courses. We want the golf course to play like Mr. Ross envisioned it – tight fairways, long rough, fast and undulating greens – just bringing back some of Mr. Ross’ plans to get the golf course to play the way we want it to play.” Brooks said Sedgefield has the ability in the summer months to grow the rough as high as it sees fit but admitted there is a balancing act with the PGA Tour. “We have certain things we have asked for and they have certain things they ask – we want the greens a certain speed and they want the greens at a certain speed – and we all have to compromise. We have our priorities, and they have their priorities. We all have to get on the same page.” Continued on page 11

Wyndham from page 10 The same PGA tour agronomist has been on board with the Wyndham Championship since the event moved to Sedgefield in 2008. “I’m not going to sit here and say we have to talk (the PGA Tour) into things, but we have told them ‘This is how we would like the golf course to be and how we want to be represented’ but by the same token we don’t want the Tour players to look bad,” Brooks said. “You don’t want some guy standing over a 2-foot putt with a foot of break in it.” Growing the rough longer actually began last year when the tournament didn’t entertain any fans because of COVID-19, although you would have never known it with the great scores shot by winner Herman and others. Herman, who has three career PGA Tour wins, for the most part spent the majority of his time in the fairway last year, spurring on his low scoring tournament. “Yeah, obviously it starts off the tee, you have to hit the fairway, there’s no way around it if you want to get to some pins on these green complexes at Sedgefield, and if you don’t you just can’t get to some of these tucked flags, and

you’re just playing for par if you drive it in the rough,” Herman said. “Playing from the rough, without being able to put spin on the ball can result in you being above the hole here and that’s just a death wish. “And then you can get a bad Bermuda lie or just a regular rough lie if

you miss a green and it’s so hard gauging how the ball is going to come out,” he added. “You will have to hit it out and just pray it will stop on some of these difficult greens.” Fans will return after a pandemic year in which the event had an “eerie” feeling without the cheers.

Is It Moving Day For Your Portfolio? Investing, like golf, presents its challenges. There are hazards as well as opportunities. Making the right choices when you’re ahead of the game is just as important as a good start or a great comeback.

“You can’t have a Wyndham Championship without fans,” said longtime tournament director Mark Brazil. “It was a great event last year for the players and we got it in, but I never want to see another one of those again. The fans make this golf tournament – and always have since 1938.” Brazil will celebrate his 20th year as the tournament director, ushering this event into a new era of prosperity and relevance. “It would be great to have some more room, but like Tiger Woods said, ‘this place is like Wrigley Field’ so sometimes you want to leave things alone,” Brazil said. “And the thing about our event is there are probably more stories going on all week than any other PGA Tour event because guys are playing for their livelihoods, to stay in the top 125 to get into the playoffs, and some guys are here to get that top 10 bonus money. This is the place where careers have been started, or extended, and also where careers are done. Some guys miss a cut here and are not only done for their season but done for their career, they never make it back on Tour. There is always so much drama.”

You’re on the back nine with a commanding lead. The weather is perfect and you’re lying 2 on the last par 5 — 185 yards from a green heavily protected by bunkers. You can’t afford a double bogey this late in the game. What’s your strategy?

Three-Pate Reagan sophomore strings together a summer to remember with three CGA wins

Photos by David Droschak



acy Pate was seeking warmer weather and the ability to work on her golf game on a full-time basis when her family moved from the North Carolina mountains to Winston-Salem last August. The 15-year-old Pate, a fierce competitor, was also looking for players to push her and challenge a skill set that was still somewhat untapped, and she found that in best friends and Reagan High School teammates Morgan Ketchum and Anna Howerton. Add Maple Chase Golf and Country Club instructor Brad Luebchow to the mix and Pate’s development has reached overdrive, winning three Carolinas Golf Association tournaments in a span of five weeks 14


this summer. In the 2021 calendar year alone, Pate has won six times, including the individual title at the 4-A state championships in leading Reagan to a No. 1 national ranking. Pate won medalist honors in mid June at the North Carolina Junior Girls’ Championship before winning the event in match play to begin her hot streak. She followed up that victory one week later with a whopping 12-shot win at the Twin States Junior Girls before a seven-stroke victory in the Carolinas Junior Girls on July 22. Pate had a final-round 66 that included eight birdies to cap her three-peat. Pate, who won’t turn 16 until October, is now the player to beat each event she enters against mostly older and more seasoned competition. “It has been a lot of fun,” Pate said. “My game had been pretty good throughout the whole high school sea-

son and going to states -- and winning states has always been a big goal of mine – so with the whole team there supporting us and watching us it gave me the confidence that I could win, I could close it out. That made me feel really good going into these summer tournaments.” In addition to her six wins in 2021, she has also recorded seven secondplace finishes through late July. “My game plan has pretty much been the same, and that’s to play to my strength and my strength is pretty much 115 yards and in,” Pate said of her wedge game. “To know that I can win, and not only win but win on a big level, has pretty much changed everything for me. Before the mindset was ‘I want to win but at the worst I want to get top 5,’ but now I’m going into these tournaments knowing I can win and knowing I can shoot low scores.”

Pate is a worker bee, often spending eight or more hours on either the Maple Chase range, on the course, or a combo of both daily. Luebchow laughs now when looking back on taking on Pate as a client. The two met officially this winter when Pate asked Luebchow for some additional help. After one lesson, Pate won a tournament. “I was like ‘OK, here we go,”’ Luebchow said. “I am a pretty goofy, outgoing guy, and to see her practicing and playing at the club with Morgan I had already kind of become buddies with her. I certainly didn’t think we would have had the success we’ve had this soon this fast, but I appreciate the fact that she trusts me so much. But she’s the one hitting the shots, so all the success goes to her.” Continued on page 15

Three-Pate from page 14 Luebchow does deserve some credit for improving Pate’s putting stroke, her short game and swing speed, as does former Wake Forest coach Diane Dailey, who is in Pate’s camp now more as a mental coach. “Before Macy came to Winston-Salem I don’t think she knew how good she could be,” said Dailey, who met Pate while spending the summer giving golf lessons in Blowing Rock. “Since she has been here she has realized she can be pretty good, and she has a future in golf. Before, it was kind of an unknown. What is wonderful about her now and what I tell her and all of my students is to take advantage of all the resources you have -- if you have a nice place to play, if you have friends that will push you, if you have a chance to work out, if you can find the best teacher in the area – do all of that. Instead of letting that all come to you all the time sometimes you need to go and take advantage of it.” Pate is looking at getting into Reagan High School and meeting new friends this fall since COVID-19 restrictions kept her away from campus for all but a few days at her new school. And with the summer golf season starting to wind down, she wants to spend a few more days on some local ponds fishing with her father.

The quiet times with dad on the water include -- what else – discussions of her golf game. “We talk about what I’m thinking about on the course, what I’m working on with my swing,” she said. Pate’s dream is to qualify for the 2022 U.S. Women’s Open, which will be held at Pine Needles in Southern Pines. Dailey believes it’s a realistic goal for the talented teenager. “Her progress has been very rapid,” Dailey said. “I think about her this time last year and we were playing at Blowing Rock, and she and I were hitting it almost the same distance, and now she’s outhitting me by 30 yards. Her game was very inconsistent and now it is much, much tighter, much stronger. She is a different person – she really improved dramatically. If she continues to do this she is going to be the next superstar from this area.” “Winning is a habit, winning is a thing you learn to do, and once you start doing it you want to do it more. It doesn’t get old,” added Luebchow. “For some kids when they starting having some success it goes to their head and they start slacking off and they can’t handle the stage, but she seems that she is always so focused on just hitting the next shot. She is one of the most competitive junior golfers I know.”

First ace for rookie and veteran By STEVE WILLIAMS


he first hole-in-one is reason to celebrate no matter how long you’ve been playing golf. On July 15, two Triad area players at opposite ends of the age scale achieved golf’s most-cherished feat. Drew Bryson, a 12-year-old middle schooler from Advance who took up the game just 18 months ago, found the cup on the 70-yard 12th hole at Tanglewood’s Par-3 course. Bryson, who was playing with Mark Cartner, used a 6-iron for a shot he’ll never forget. Meanwhile, 74-year old Moe Moriarty of High Point, ended his 61-year wait with a perfectly struck 138-yard 8-iron at The Cardinal’s famous 12th, the hole Pete Dye labeled the toughest par-3 he ever designed. Ed Schettino, Jack Ellis and Bob Arnold were in the foursome. There were a number of other players who reported aces since our July issue. The list follows:

Par-4 Aces Cambridge Gann of Mayodan, July 16, Dan Valley GC. No. 11, 251 yards, 3-wood. Playing partner: Dylan Mabe. His first ace. Jamie Bowen of Winston-Salem, May 18, Wilshire GC. No. 4, 284 yards, driver. Playing partners: Tyler Morgan, Steve Blakely, Eli Atwell.
