North Carolina Sr Am: Simson wins by 10

Asheboro, NC (5/17/07) -- He did it again and this time it wasn't even close. Paul Simson of Raleigh captured his 15th major CGA championship with a ten stroke victory in the 22nd North Carolina Senior Amateur Championship. Paul bogeyed the par 5 third hole when his attempt to hit the green in two found water. He responded with four straight birdies and the win was assured early.

David Strawn of Charlotte was the only other player to finish under par. He played with Simson all three days and received a lesson in how to get the ball in the hole from anywhere. "I'd call Paul lucky if he didn't do magic every time he teed it up" said Strawn. "He's just good and a real pleasure to play with. He's got the best attitude and I feel like I learned something just playing with him."

Sixty seven players made the cut and the top 30 and ties will be exempt in the 2008 championship.
