No flagstick, even the ones tucked behind bunkers with just a few feet of turf between hole and hazard, were safe from the approach shots from Luke Clanton fired at them Sunday in the championship match of the 122nd North & South Amateur on Pinehurst No. 2.

But there was one safe play Clanton took because he knew the situation.
