Brook Valley Country Club will once again play host to the GPRO Tour’s Greenville Open, with tournament action set to be played Monday through Wednesday with a pro-am event scheduled for Sunday.

The tournament will play over 54 holes with the winner receiving a paid entry into the PGA’s Tour Qualifying School and a first-place prize of $10,000.

The pro-am pairs one professional player with a local team of four golfers. Pro-am entry fees will benefit the Harold Varner III Foundation. Varner, now a regular on the PGA Tour, is a former player at East Carolina.

Varner’s foundation aims to give less fortunate kids better access and increased opportunities in the sport.

Sponsorships also are available and include entries into the pro-am. They also include publicity at the club and in the publications of the tour. Anyone interested in purchasing a sponsorship may do so by emailing garyhaugh@thegprotour.com or by contacting the Brook Valley golf shop at 252-751-1965.

Available sponsorships are $5,000 (includes three teams); $2,500 (two teams) and $1,500 (two teams). Individual team entries are $400.

Varner, 28, was named as the top sleeper pick on PGA.com to win this week’s John Deere Open. That comes on the heels of his being in contention at the PGA Championship before a final-day score of 81 put him out of the running and in 36th place. He has eight finishes in the top 25 and is the tour’s 38th-best driver with an average of 302.3 yards.

Ninety-four points, zero wins.

East Carolina’s football team was dealt that harsh reality in its first two games of November, scoring 43 in a three-point loss to Cincinnati at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and then on Saturday producing even more points — 51 — but also allowing more in a…

Let's expand this exercise, for one week, to include South Carolina. The Battle for The Carolinas.

Clemson, obviously, would be No. 1. South Carolina would be fourth thanks to its win over Georgia.

No. 2? Appalachian State, which would own road victories over No. 3 North Carolina and fourth-ranked…

DALLAS

Tucked in a super clean and sometimes sleepy nook in Dallas is the campus at SMU, a private school that has stirred to life this fall behind a nationally ranked football team that provides excitement for its tidy, polite fan base with a fun-to-watch, prolific offense and an outside-the-box…

DALLAS — SMU continued its banner football season, giving some of its longtime fans more memories of the 1980s with an offense that produced droves of points and yards again at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

East Carolina was great on offense Saturday as well, gaining more yards than its nationally-…

Seth LeDay's jumper with 14 seconds to play in the second half on Friday night pulled the East Carolina basketball team within a point of Navy, but when the Pirates fouled in the final minute, the Midshipmen made their free throws to preserve a 62-57 win in the Veteran's Classic in Annapolis.

Q: What is your favorite from of social media?

A: Probably Instagram, because I just like looking at the pictures.

Q: Could you kick with your left foot?

A: I could, but it would probably hurt. I don’t think I could very well, maybe like 12 yards. If my other leg fell off or something and I…
