PLAYS PINEHURST RESORT #9
Pinehurst, NC (July 19,
2014) - Pinehurst Resort
course #9 played host to the
Golfweek Amateur Golf Tour
today. Formerly known as The
National, the course was in
top form as just under 100
Tour members vied for points
and prizes in the regularly
scheduled Tour event.
The best scores in the event
belonged to Greensboro's Jared
Jewett and Fayetteville's
Larry Hardee. The

shot 1-under par 71s. It took
Jewett 3 holes of sudden-death
playoff to capture the title
when Hardee conceded a birdie
putt to him for the win.
The A Flight also required
playoff golf with Charlotte's
Scott Nichols emerging the
victor over Raleigh's Tim
Manyatis. Both shot 76 in the
event, with Nichols making
short work of the playoff -
winning on the
first extra hole.
Raleigh's Mike Groom edged a
trio of players by a single
stroke in the B Flight with an
80. Greensboro's James
Bagwell, Pinehurst's Tom Kubla,
and David Gover of Raleigh
comprised the group that was
one shot back.
Charlotte's Scott Birtner was
a runaway winner in the C
Flight with a 79 that was 10
shots clear of second place
finisher Al Sheely of Hope
Mills. "It was the round of my
life" declared Birtner, whose
Tour statistics backed him up
on the claim.
It was only right that Karl
Yergey took home a prize and a
trophy from this event in the
D Flight. The Flight winner
from Washington DC posted a 93
to make the commute
worthwhile. Apex' Denis Meyer
