The Blade has become the SCJGA's premiere junior event.
The Blade Junior Golf Classic has surpassed $1.3 million in charitable donations!
This year we are celebrating our 20th anniversary and we would like to thank you for your generous support of The Blade and the local charities we have supported over the past 20 years. As a result of your support, The Blade has been able to donate over $1,300,000 to local charities that support our mission of “KIDS HELPING KIDS”. This year will be supporting the Kellie Rynn Academy. The Kellie Rynn Academy provides support/scholarships to hard working families who are struggling to pay for quality childcare here in the upstate.
Over the past 20 years, The Blade has had the support of Jay and Jan Haas, numerous volunteers, the SCJGA, Thornblade Club, and the best junior golfers in the state to become the premier junior tournament in the state. Past participants of The Blade have included PGA tour winners Ben Martin, Bill Haas and Scott Brown, LPGA 2 time runner-up Kristy McPherson, Web.com Tour winners Mark Anderson and Kevin Kisner, USGA Public Links Champion Corbin Mills, USGA Women's Amateur runner-up Brandi Jackson, and LPGA Tour golfer Austin Ernst.
