Neighbors Finish 1-2 at North Carolina Am

DURHAM, NC (June 14, 2009)--Two Smithfield golfers claimed the top two spots in the North Carolina Amateur Championship at Old Chatham Golf Club.

19 year-old Mark McMillen fired a 5-under par 67 to claim the championship with a 10-under par total. His neighbor and friend Derek Wallace, who attends UNC-Wilmington finished in second along with David Watkins of Hamlet.

McMillen used six birdies against one bogey.

“Derek is two years older than me,” said McMillen. “We grew up playing together which made us very competitive.”

McMillen fought a shoulder injury last summer which kept him out of competition for 1 ½ months.

“I knew I was close to playing well coming into this tournament,” said the rising sophomore at NC State University. “My short game really came around this week which made the difference.”

The champion had not played Old Chatham Golf Club prior to this week’s practice round.

Smithfield, NC has a modest population of 12,544.

“Smithfield is not known much except the home of Neal Lancaster (PGA Tour Player) and Ava Gardner (movie star),” said McMillen. “So it is nice to add a little something to that.”

The North Carolina Amateur Championship is conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association.
