The Blade Junior Golf Classic
A little more than a decade after inception, The Blade has become the SCJGA’s premiere junior event.
Rob Reeves, joined by more than 500 volunteers, have created a special tournament. To date, some 1750 kids have played The Blade and the tournament results read like a who’s who in junior golf; 120 of them going on to complete at the college level. Players like Bill and Jay Haas Jr., Brian and Ben Duncan, Brent Delahoussaye, Kevin Kisner, Ben Martin and on.
On behalf of The Blade Junior Golf Classic Board of Directors, Thornblade Club, and the SC Junior Golf Association, we would like to welcome you to our 21st annual tournament. Over the past 20 years, The Blade has been able to make significant contributions to the SC Junior Golf Foundation to help promote junior golf in our state. This year, we are very excited about supporting our charity, The Kellie Rynn Academy. Our specific goal is to help fund their after school and summer camp programs. We hope that through the generous donations of our sponsors and the help of all our volunteers we will be able to give back to this worthy cause.
