19th Hole: Wilkinson Team Captures Father-Son Tournament
The Wilkin-sons had never played Seven Lakes before the practice round, but used steady play -- hitting 16 greens and having no three-putt greens -- to beat out three other teams by two shots.
The modified shot format allowed each player to hit tee shots on each hole, then select the ball to play alternating shots for the balance of the hole.
Keith Harris of Concord and Dylan Harris of Southern Pines tied for fifth with 73, and also tied for first in Flight A.
The Paul Jetts of Southern Pines and Pinehurst tied for 25th with 76, along with the Banks Woods team, defending champions from Charlotte. Paul and Phillip Simson of Raleigh were also at 76.
Glenn Lassiter of Robbins and Steve Lassiter of Pinehurst tied for 33rd at 77. The Joe Pooles of Raeford and Bayonet at Puppy Creek were at 78.
Parent-Child: Tom Crane and daughter Sydney Crane of Jamestown posted a 3-under-par 68 to win the Carolinas Parent-Child Championship held at the Club at Longleaf.
