Tarheel Junior Golf Tour Member Disqualified in 2A Mid-East Regional

Raleigh, NC, May 10, 2011 --( Jonathan Price, a sophomore at Granville Central High School and a member of the Tarheel Junior Golf Tour, did something most people at his age would never think to do. With a six-inch tap-in putt for par, Price intentionally forfeited his opportunity to participate in the North Carolina High School State Championship. High school junior golfers dream of winning the State Championship, but Price had a different plan. A plan so amazing, that it included Michael Pope, a senior at Granville Central High School.

Price and Pope were forced to enter a playoff for the last possible individual qualifier for the State Championship. After Pope three-putted the playoff hole, Price was left with an easy six-inch tap-in putt for par to win the playoff. However, Price never made the putt. He picked up his ball and disqualified himself so Pope, his friend and teammate, could attend the State Championship as a senior. This act of sportsmanship showed tremendous character and heart. Congratulations, Jonathan Price for being a true winner. Eric Murray, tour director for the Tarheel Junior Golf Tour, said that this level of sportsmanship is rare but not surprising. Murray went on to say, “the members of the Tarheel Junior Golf Tour amaze me every day. The junior golfers that I’m around are amazing golfers, but they also have life skills that are way beyond their years. Jonathan’s act of unselfishness and sportsmanship exemplifies that.”
