This morning, sixth seed Rowan Sullivan of Charleston and twenty-ninth seed Gabe Schmitz of Okatie went head-to-head in the in the boys championship round of the Inaugural SCJGA Match Play.


Sullivan took a big lead early in the final round match and went on to defeat Schmitz 4 and 2 to claim the Inaugural SCJGA Match Play boys division title.


“I started off really well today,” Sullivan said. “I got up early and kind of just cruised and made pars. I think that’s the key to match play out here, you can par your guy to death and make them make birdie which is how I think I was able to win. I think this tournament has the makings of something really special, and I’m really thankful and excited to be the inaugural boys champion.”


Congaree Mission


Congaree Foundation has a mission to positively impact the lives of young people locally and around the globe by providing educational and vocational opportunities through the game of golf.


Sergeant Jasper Golf Club


Acquired by Congaree Foundation in 2021, the historic Sergeant Jasper Golf Club quickly captured headlines across the sport and has drawn support from PGA TOUR stars who want to help #RechargeTheSarge.


Sergeant Jasper will support access to the game of golf by providing a new home to area high school teams and a quality public course for local golfers. In the past, the lack of available facilities has been a roadblock for area schools looking to establish their own golf programs. With access to the club provided to these teams at no cost, competitive high school golf can expand and flourish in the Lowcountry.
