Augusta golfer enjoys playing in US Junior Am

Jake Forgay used the word “awesome” on several occasions to describe his experience playing in the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship this past week.

The Augusta Prep rising senior posted rounds of 78-77 at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn. He missed advancing to match play by four shots.

“It played like a mini-U.S. Open for juniors,” he said. “If you hit a bad shot, you were punished.”

Forgay said the tournament was like a PGA Tour event.

His caddy sported Forgay’s name on the back of his bib. Forgay also had his name listed on the driving range.

And the course played like a PGA Tour course as well.

The greens, he said, were running about 14 on the Stimpmeter in practice rounds.

After some rain in the area, the greens slowed a bit to 12. Still, they weren’t easy, especially if you missed above the hole.

“You had to play 30-foot putts like they were eight feet,” he said.

Forgay said he was a “nervous wreck” when he teed off No. 1 in the first round.

He three-putted from 60 feet for bogey, but he settled down and was just 2-over through 11. Then, he carded bogeys on four of his next five holes.

“The first day, I hit the ball great,” he said. “I just left myself in some bad positions and couldn’t get up and down.”

In the second round, he started on No. 10 and got to even par for his round after rolling in a six-foot birdie putt at No. 1. At the time, he was inside the cut line for making match play. Then, his round fell apart.

Forgay pulled his drive left at the par-5 second hole, punched out of the trees and made bogey. At the par-3 third, he missed the green and then lipped out his 10-foot par putt. He went on to bogey Nos. 4, 5 and 8.

Despite missing the cut, he tied for 99th place, beating out 57 players in the field.

He took encouragement from the finish.

“I now realize I can compete with the top juniors in the country,” he said. “This gives me a boatload of confidence.”

Forgay, 17, said he has to sharpen up his iron play if he’s going to break through. As for the mental aspect, he said he’s confident in his game, especially with a Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event this month at Forest Hills Golf Club and an American Junior Golf Association tournament next month in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Also, he’s received an invitation to play in the prestigious Bobby Chapman Junior Invitational in August.

“If I believe in my ability,” he said, “the sky is the limit.”

3 players from Aquinas transfer to Grovetown

With football season about to begin, Grovetown has added three standout players transferring from Aquinas.

Rising senior Verenzo Holmes Jr., a defensive back, and rising junior running back D’Angelo Durham are becoming Warriors again. They will join former Aquinas receiver Justin Gibbs at Grovetown.

Both Holmes, who tweeted in June he picked up offer No. 13 from Cincinnati, and Durham had previously been with Grovetown before transferring to Aquinas. Due to family reasons, the two are back at the Columbia County school.

“We’ve never had this type of situation before, with so many kids coming in this close to the season,” said Warriors coach Damien Postell, who was an assistant when Durham and Holmes were previously at Grovetown.

“Those guys know each other and our guys know them. That kind of helps.”

Durham rushed for nearly 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns as a sophomore with the Fighting Irish to grab First Team All-Area honors.

Holmes’ biggest highlight in 2015 came when he returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in the GHSA Class A state title
game.

The 6-foot-2, 196-pound Gibbs, who battled injuries but still earned a third team All-Area selection, had 646 receiving yards and seven touchdowns as a junior.

He also turned heads as a sophomore when he caught four passes for 103 yards and three touchdowns
in a 49-21 win against Tattnall Square.

Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, Indiana, Mississippi State and Wake Forest are among the schools to extend an offer to the star receiver.

Aquinas coach James Leonard said he supports the players 100 percent as they continue their high school careers and hope to play at the next level.

Author Doster to give talk on Elijah Clarke

Elijah Clarke is known locally as the “Hero of the Hornets Nest” and he fought bravely throughout the Southern campaign of the American Revolution. Clarke was wounded four times during the war.

After the war, he become a large landowner. He later served in the State Legislature and his son John Clark (who dropped the “e” from his name) became governor of Georgia. Clarke County is named for Elijah Clarke.

This story is well known and is about what one would expect for a Revolutionary War hero. There is a chapter that is not told often, however, about how Elijah Clarke attempted to create his own small country within Georgia after the war, complete with defensive forts and its own constitution.

The governor of Georgia, under pressure from the federal government, had to get involved to put down the insurrection.

Gary Doster will cover this unusual chapter of Georgia’s history 7 p.m. Thursday Aug. 4 in the May House at the Lincoln County Historical Park when he speaks on “General Elijah Clarke’s So-Called Trans-Oconee Republic.”

“This talk is ... about something that is unheard of today and perhaps doesn’t exactly match our notion of the actions of a Revolutionary War hero. However, it did happen and students of history want to know what really occurred, not just what we want to remember,” said Lincoln County Historical Society president Gary Edwards. “It’s also useful to put his actions in their historical context and avoid judging people from Revolutionary War times by today’s standards. Gary Doster has the background and perspective to do just that.”

Doster was born in Athens, Ga., and except for a brief time when he was a child, has lived in the Athens area all his life.

Doster is a certified wildlife biologist and is retired from the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, headquartered at the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Doster has a lifelong interest in U.S. history, especially Georgia and Athens history.

He has collected historical memorabilia and artifacts since childhood. His collecting interests include Georgia obsolete currency from the colonial period through the Civil War, pre-1920 Georgia picture postcards, Confederate documents, early Georgia letters, Confederate soldiers’ letters, early Georgia photographs, slavery documents, Indian relics, antique guns, and almost any other collectibles involving Georgia history.

The History in the Park lectures are held at the Lincoln County Historical Park, 147 Lumber St., Lincolnton, Ga. on the first Thursday of the month. Desserts, water, coffee and tea will be served after the presentation, allowing plenty of time to speak individually with the speaker.

There is no admission fee, however donations to the Historical Society will be accepted. The Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

For questions, contact Edwards at (757) 831-9556.

Foundation gets a home

A new community service foundation that serves middle school children and the community dedicated its new home last week.

Ms. Myrt’s House, at 110 Hardy Drive in Grovetown, will provide food and a free place for middle school children to go to get help with homework and learning job skills, and will also offer students opportunities to participate in hobbies including photography, web design and consumer sciences such as cooking, with help from volunteers.

According to Young­blood, the foundation has seen success with contributions and was able to donate 100 turkeys at Thanksgiving and help provide a Christmas to remember for 10 local families last year.

The foundation is planning a bookbag giveaway and back-to-school bash for Sunday, Aug. 7 at 4 p.m. at Ms. Myrt’s House.

Road work should help ease congestion, officials say

Road work at the newly constructed River Watch Parkway extension and Blue Ridge Drive is not expected to impact school traffic at three Columbia County schools, but is instead expected to ease congestion in the area, according to Georgia Department of Transportation officials.

Drivers to and from Lakeside high and middle schools and Blue Ridge Elementary on Blue Ridge Drive can expect no more traffic than normal when students return to school Aug. 8, according to Penny Jackson, the assistant superintendent.

Jackson said that while construction initially caused buses to be rerouted for transporting summer school students, working around construction is something the district has grown accustomed to.

“We just had to follow the detour, it’s very similar to what we are having to do on Robinson Avenue and several other places around the county,” Jackson said. “We are going to have to realize that there could possibly be delays if we don’t leave a little earlier, but we have been dealing with those for quite a few years at various places within the county.”

Crews closed off access to Blue Ridge Drive at the intersection of Old Evans Road last week and reopened it Friday, tying the new $35 million River Watch Parkway extension into Old Petersburg Road.

The detour connected drivers to Blue Ride Drive via Columbia Industrial Boulevard and Evans to Locks Road.

According to a news release from GDOT, the reopening of Blue Ridge Drive will be followed by the closure of Old Evans Road to thru-traffic from south of Blue Ridge Drive. Old Evans Road is expected to reopen July 25.

“When they close (Old Evans Road) off they have to lift that road up and reconstruct that whole area realigning it with Old Petersburg,” said Kyle Collins, a district communications officer for the department.

According to the release, the detour around the Old Evans Road closure includes McCormick Road over to Old Petersburg Road/River Watch Parkway. During the closure, nearby neighborhoods and businesses will still be accessible.

Collins said that before projects are started, the department works to minimize the impact on highly trafficked areas.

“Contract work restrictions on lane closures don’t allow interruptions from 7 to 8:30 a.m. and from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday,” Collins said, adding that once the Blue Ridge intersection opens back up, the new extension tie-in will ease traffic congestion.

Jackson said that good communication between GDOT officials and school administrators has made dealing with the construction easier to work around.

“They give us good notice,” Jackson said of the department of transportation. “Like in this particular case we knew well before school was out that towards the end of our summer school run we were going to have some issues so we were able to prepare for it ahead of time and it does help having that good relationship with our county.”

And while the road work might serve as an obstacle for now, Jackson said it is a positive sign of progress.

“We remain optimistic because we know that the hardships we are experiencing right now, the grand plan will be to make it that much better for all of us because we are just so congested right now,” Jackson said.

And while construction is not expected to impact back-to-schoolers, Jackson said the first week of school brings its own traffic challenges for Lakeside high and middle schools and Blue Ridge Elementary.

“That first week is always a mess because we are trying to iron out bus routes, number of kids on the buses, as well as the parents driving as opposed to putting their kids on the bus,” Jackson said. “So we tend to have delays anyway that first week, but we just iron them out.”

Jackson added that Lakeside High and middle and Blue Ridge Elementary personnel will be keeping an eye out for any improvements that can be made to ease the flow of traffic.

Evans Barberitos to open in August

Evans’ first Barberitos restaurant is scheduled to open next week, and it is encouraging customers to visit by donating some of its opening week proceeds to local charities.

Ten percent of sales Aug. 2-6 will benefit Golden Harvest Food Bank of Augusta and Augusta Warrior Project.

At 4272 Washington Road, the Evans Barberitos is owned and operated by Brett McCullough, Lanier Scruggs and Cissy Hutchinson. Scruggs is an Augusta native and West­side High School graduate.

The Evans location will be the first of three stores the group plans to open in the area this year.

“We are thrilled to be opening our doors here in Augusta, and we look forward to partnering with the community by providing delicious food and giveback initiatives like our grand opening,” McCullough said.

Barberitos serves made-to-order burritos, tacos, quesadillas, nachos and salads and offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

Continuing the chain’s expansion throughout the Southeast, the Evans location is the 28th in Georgia and 46th nationwide.

“Our expansion through the state and the Southeast is a testament to our customers and we are excited to expand in Augusta,” said Downing Barber, the founder of Athens, Ga.,-based Barberitos.
