June 12, 2014 (Kannapolis, NC) – Nathan Stamey won the 50th Toshiba / SignArt North Carolina Open held at The Club at Irish Creek. Stamey defeated amateur Jake McGlone of Charlotte, NC in a one-hole playoff to claim the championship.
Stamey, a PGA Apprentice Assistant Professional from Long Cove Club in Hilton Head Island, SC, came into the final round with a two-stroke lead. He played a solid round of 70 (-1) today to bring his tournament winning total to 67-66-70=203 (-10).
“I had some opportunities during the round today and almost holed out on 9. I felt good going into the back, but Jake made a bunch of birdies to make a run on me. He let me back in when he missed that par putt to send the tournament into the playoff,” said Stamey.
With his overall runner up position after losing in the playoff to Stamey, Jake McGlone is the low amateur for the tournament. McGlone is a rising sophomore at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro where he is a member of the Men’s Golf Team.
Rick Lewallen, PGA who calls Kannapolis home, claimed the Senior Bonus purse available to competing PGA Professional that are age 50 or older. Lewallen finished the tournament at 70-70-68= 208 (-5).
