As history was made Sunday with Jordan Spieth’s win of The Tour Championship, local golf and sports turf students from Horry Georgetown Technical College were there.

For four days, they built relationships with staff at the historic East Lake Golf Club and helped set up the course for the prestigious tournament. Professors Charles Granger and Ashley Wilkinson accompanied students to assess their performance in a living lab while golf fans watched around the world.
