BROWNS SUMMIT, N.C. — Matt Elliott secured low-amateur honors on Thursday at the Carolinas Open. With steady rounds of 71, 72, and 71, the UNC-Pembroke junior Matt Elliott from Wilkesboro, N.C. tied for fifth place, 10 behind winner Jerry Haas.

Elliott was the highest finishing amateur player in the field by seven shots, seven ahead of former Newberry College golfer Ryan Wilkinson.

At one-over par 214, Elliott may have been double digits back of the winning player, but he was just four off of second place, with Haas finishing six ahead of Savio Nazareth.
