Scott Harvey wins Carolinas Mid-Amateur title
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (April 15, 2012) -- Scott Harvey of Greensboro picked up right where he left off last year with another CGA championship win. His final round 71 and three day total of 209 bested the field by six shots. “This win was kind of special because I’ve finished second three times in the Mid-Am” said Harvey. “Today I made a couple of bogeys early when I thought I had hit good shots. I was two over after seven but got it back with an eagle on the par five 8th. After that I felt comfortable and in control of my game.” Tied for second were a pair South Carolinians, Chris Mitchell from Prosperity and Michael Sims from West Columbia. Josh Branyon, the reigning SCGA Mid-Amateur Champion was in the hunt until a double bogey 6 on the tough 13th derailed his hopes. The low round of the day was 69 by Tee Opperman of Pawleys Island, SC. His 3 under effort vaulted him from a tie for 15th to a tie for 4th. This championship is conducted by the Carolinas Golf Association celebrating over 100 years of service to golf in the Carolinas.
