“Don’t make a bogey. Worked for me!”

This was the advice given by CGA alum and 2019 Wyndham Championship winner, J.T. Poston, to the players taking on Sedgefield Country Club in Monday’s Carolinas Club Championship.

Poston played bogey-free for all 72 holes of his first PGA TOUR win last fall at Sedgefield. The same could not be said for this year’s Carolinas Club Champions.

The team representing Boone Golf Club, Tommy Miller of Blowing Rock, N.C. and John Cornett of Boone, N.C., began their round on Sedgefield’s 10th hole and by their fifth hole of play, they were already two-over-par after making bogeys on Nos. 11 and 14.

“I was telling Tommy, this is the kick in the pants we need,” said Cornett about the rough start. “With the greens as fast as they were and these tough pin positions, we knew it was going to be an uphill battle. I wasn’t thinking about winning at that point but it was kind of evident that maybe a 63 wasn’t going to happen out here, so I just said we need to make birdies and that’s what we did”

The duo birdied the next four holes to go from 2-over-par after only five holes, to 2-under-par at the turn. From there, they played exactly how you need to if you’re going to win a four-ball event. When one player was out, the other was making an important par or a birdie.

When Cornett made a birdie on the par-3, third hole, Miller answered with a birdie on the par-4, fourth. Miller saved par on the par-5, fifth hole and Cornett returned the favor on the par-4, sixth. They went back-and-forth like this until their final hole where Miller made a birdie on the par-4, ninth hole to finish the Championship at 6-under-par, 65.

“This is a CGA Championship,” said Miller. “To win something like this, it means our name will be in the record books forever.”

Two teams narrowly missed forcing a playoff including the side of Joseph Cansler of Clemmons, N.C. and Marcy Newton of Winston-Salem, N.C. and the side of Chris Cassetta  of High Point, N.C. and Thomas Bonney of Greensboro, N.C. Both teams finished the Championship one shot back after firing rounds of 5-under-par, 66. Cansler and Newton represented Jamestown Golf Association and Cassetta and Bonney represented the host club, Sedgefield Country Club.

The CGA would like to extend a thank you to the members and staff of Sedgefield Country Club for their hospitality in hosting the 43rd Carolinas Club Championship, especially Director of Golf Rocky Brooks, Director of Sales & Catering Travis Huddleston and McConnell Golf. We would also like to thank the players and spectators for their understanding and adherence to our COVID-19 tournament protocols.
