CAMDEN'S WILL HICKS HEADS up the local contingent entered into next weekends Creed Junior Boys Invitational.
In the days and weeks following the passing of Jimmy Creed Jr. last October, Camden County Club head professional, Matt McCarley, racked his brain as to what would be the most fitting tribute to his close friend and one of the club’s most popular members.Then one day, while driving in his truck, the idea McCarley was looking for came to him. He quickly picked up his cell phone and called Jack Nance, executive director of the Carolinas Golf Association to pitch his idea. What McCarley envisioned was the Camden Country Club hosting a boys’ junior golf tournament to be played annually and, in Creed’s memory.Nance, whose wife hails from Camden, wasted little time in giving the idea the green light from the CGA. Next up for McCarley was to sell the idea of the two-day junior tournament to members of the Camden Country Club.
