In order to play in the 2014 TYGA Tournament of Champions you needed to earn your way by winning a pervious TYGA event. That might be why some of the best golf was played over the past two days in Southern Pines, NC at Hyland Golf Club.

Finishing in second over all but first in the Boys’ 14-15 Division was Dalton Mauldin from Sanford, NC. Blake Taylor of Atkinson, NC finished solo second in the Boys’ 16-18 Division just four shots back of Hart. While Seth Lomison, Pfafftown, NC finished his summer golf with a final round 70 placing him third in the Division.  Brian Chen of Cary, NC and AJ Beechler of Pinehurst, NC finished tied for second behind Mauldin in the Boys’ 14-15 Division.
Chris Kim of Cary, NC shot the low round of the tournament, 63, in his first round helping him win the Boys’ 12-13 Division with a two day score of 12 under par. It was not easy for Kim as good friend and playing competitor, Akshay Bhatia of Wake Forest, NC came out firing a second round 65, which was enough for a second place finish at eight under par. A three way tie for third was shared amongst: Whit Edwards Jr. of Greensboro, NC, Alex Huml of Cary, NC, and Symon Balbin of Pinehurst, NC.
