TPC Myrtle Beach wrapped up another highly-successful World Junior Golf Championship this past weekend, with Akshay Bhatia and defending girls’ champion Alexa Pano putting on dominant performances to claim victory in their respective divisions.
Bhatia’s 10-under score of 206 matched the TPC Myrtle Beach tournament record for 54-hole play, while Pano became the event’s first competitor to take home the trophy for a second straight year. The event steadily continues to grow in competitive stature, with dozens of the nation’s top junior players joining the 2019 field – including Bhatia, the world’s No. 1-ranked boy and Pano, the nation’s third-ranked girl.
During the tournament, Charlie Rymer spent some time with Clay Dubose, regional superintendent with Founders Group International, who oversees course conditions at TPC Myrtle Beach as well as several other Waccamaw Golf Trail courses. Clay talked about some of the steps TPC Myrtle Beach took not only in preparing the course for the premium conditions offered for this year’s competition, but how those preparations are also part of their broader effort to offer a premium experience for all its visiting golfers.
The golf course is in fantastic shape – be sure to include it in your spring Waccamaw Golf Trail getaway!
