N. Carolina Mid-Am: Grissette by five

GREENSBORO, N.C. (Sept. 14, 2008) -- Uly Grissette (204) of Clemmons, NC fired a final round five-under par 66 to win the championship by six strokes over Scott Harvey (210) of Greensboro, NC at the Sedgefield Country Club.

Grisette, a 42-year-old sales manager for robotic automation sensors, traded the lead throughout the front nine and found himself one stoke behind Harvey at the turn.

Harvey, playing in the group ahead of Grisette, made bogey on the 10th hole while Grisette made a birdie thus springing him into the lead for good. A back-nine five-under par 31 vaulted his lead to six strokes in the end.

Grisette recently regained his amateur status back in July.

"I was not playing much golf as a professional and I was actually moonlighting playing in pro events in addition to my job", said Grisette. "I really like playing on the weekends and look forward to having the opportunity to compete in amateur competitions".

Second round co-leader Chris Dalrymple of Pinehurst, NC faltered with a final round 77 to finish in a tie for 10th.

Defending champion Gary Robinson of Fayetteville, NC shot a final round 79 and finished in a tie for 46th.
