Will Miles, who has 13 top-10 finishes on the International Junior Golf Tour, was named the Planet Fitness Academic Athlete of the Week. The Hilton Head Island, S.C., native was selected to receive the award for his excellence both on the golf course and in the classroom. Miles currently attends Heritage Academy, which allows him to take rigorous academic courses without interfering with his intense tournament schedule.
Well-known local sports anchor Frank Sulkowski of WJCL News presented Miles with the award and interviewed him as part of a segment that will air tonight at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
Miles is the defending champion of the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor having won titles at the event in both 2014 and 2013. This year’s Georgia Junior will be held February 21-22 at Savannah Harbor.
