Spartanburg Co-captains Brian Kennedy & Max Fain said while the competion is intense, the teams are playing with a higher calling.

Fain agreed, also "wishing to thank Powerade for continuing their support as title sponsor." Combined, the Greenville & Spartanburg teams raised approximately $30,000 that will be passed along to The First Tee of their respective counties.
