He also played in 18 U.S. Amateur Championships and won the following tournaments during his career: North Carolina Open, American Amateur Classic, Dixie Amateur, Porter Cup, Dogwood Invitational, National Tournament of Champions (six times) and the Rice Planters (twice). Mr. Harvey spent a lifetime sharing his love of the game with countless others keeping golf fun for all to enjoy.
