Myrtle Beach, SC (7/17/11) - 33-year-old Scott Harvey of Greensboro, NC fulfilled a lifelong dream by matching his dad's feat to win the Carolinas Amateur championship.

Harvey's seven-under par 281 total edged three golfers by two strokes. The championship was conducted at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, SC.

"This is the one that I wanted more than any of them," said Harvey referring to his victory. "This is the premiere amateur event in the southeast with a great list of champions, including my dad. Knowing my dad won this as well is just incredible."
