What a weekend at Calloway's Bar and Grillin West Columbia, SC! After a long weekend of competition, Andy Haas took home his fourthconsecutive win, heading into our next and final stop in National Golden Tee Tour, the Dallas Holiday Classic!
It was a hard fought battle in the finals with Andy Haas entering undefeated on Sunday as the King of the Hill. He'd square off against none other than Paul Luna, who took the first round against Andy, forcing a second match to determine the 2022 Carolina Clash champion. Paul Luna ultimately lost against one of his biggest PEGT Tour rivals, by a score of 29 to 26 on Hollywood Hills. Chris Brewer, who finished 1st in qualifying overall on Saturday, took 3rd, and Paul Tayloe took 4th.

Matt VanHoosier faced Chris Longino in the Purple bracket final, with Matt coming out on top by a single stroke to earn himself the championship AND a spot in the 2023 Golden Tee World Championship! Chris Longino, Chad Gainer, and Derek Montgomery finished 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively. We'll see you at Worlds, Matt!
