USGTF national course director Mark Harman of Ridgeland, South Carolina, captured a record ninth region title when he won the 2020 USGTF Southeast Region Championship at Rio Pinar Golf Club in Orlando, Florida, January 23-24. Harman fired scores of 71-72 – 143 to best Ron Cox from Nashville, Tennessee by two strokes. Harman began the second round with a two-stroke lead over Cox, building it to a seemingly safe five shots at the turn. But Cox, having other ideas, ripped off three consecutive birdies to open the final nine to pull within two. The pair battled back and forth until Harman’s 60-foot putt from just off the 18th green to one foot sealed the deal. A record 22 players teed it up, making it the best-attended SE championship yet. Region director Mike Stevens hosted the event and chose the venue, which previously was a PGA Tour stop.
