2012 PGA Tournament is a Classroom for College of Charleston Students

Charleston, SC – College of Charleston hospitality and tourism management majors are turning Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course into a classroom during the 2012 PGA Championship. Nearly 30 students in associate professor Wayne Smith’s Managing Corporate Events course are working hand-in-hand with corporate event planners to supervise dozens of hospitality suites. “This is really a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these students,” Smith says. “There are very few universities who can provide students with access to major events such as the PGA Championship. We’ve been building this relationship for more than five years (since the Senior PGA Championship in 2007) and these students are poised to reap the benefits through experience and relationships.” Smith, who is serving as the co-chairperson of the tournament’s […]

Starter Layne Somsen (South Dakota State) picked up the win, as he struck out eight Pilots in six innings of work on the hill. The dynamic duo of James Simmons and Tyler Brunnemann, both from Hardin-Simmons, proved lethal once again out of the bullpen, as they combined for a perfect three innings of relief. Simmons retired all thirteen Pilots he faced in the series, while Brunnemann picked up two saves, with five of his six outs […]
