WALLACE, NC (Oct. 9, 2011) – David Donovan IV of Hampstead, NC and Jonathan Miles of Wilmington, NC fired atournament low round of 62 to win the 16th North Carolina Four-Ball Championship by three strokes over Ryan Sullivan of Winston-Salem, NC and Brian Phaup of Taylorsville, NC.

Donovan, a 19-year-old sophomore criminal justice major at Cape Fear Community College, and Miles, a 20-year-old junior finance student at Pfeiffer College, carded eight birdies and an eagle en route to their 62. They came out firing on all cylinders and were quickly six-under par through seven holes. Four additional birdies on the back nine sealed the victory.

“When we racked off the eagle on the fifth hole that really got us going,” stated Donovan. “We kept our focus today which was our key.”

This is the first four-ball event that the Donovan and Miles have played together.

“I know we will be playing at least one more together when we try to defend next year,” Donovan said with a smile.
