Pine Needles-Mid Pines Sr. Open: Ed Donlin low am
SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (Oct. 31, 2012) -- Amateurgolf.com Member Ed Donlin fired rounds of 76-74--150 to take low amateur honors at the 2012 CPGA Senior Open at Pine Needles-Mid Pines.

Windy conditions due to Hurricane Sandy turned the 36-hole event into a much more challenging event than usual. Historic Pine Needles held up to the storm's wrath, however, in Round 1 as eventual champion Rick Lewallen, a professional from Kannapolis, NC, fired a 2-under 70. The second round was played at Mid Pines with Lewallen firing a second-straight 70 for the overall title.

No. 1 at Pine Needles
Donlin, a member of the amateurgolf.com Player Staff Program (CLICK HERE to learn more about the Player Staff Program), opened with a 76 at Pine Needles and followed suite with a 74 in Round 2 at Mid Pines. In addition to taking low amateur honors, Donlin, a Concord, NC resident, was tied for seventh place among all competitors --- professional and amateur.

Amateurs Jim Pridgen, and Rick Luzer were Co-Champions of the Super Senior Division both finishing at 140 (-3). The Super Senior age division is made up of PGA Professionals and amateurs age 65+ who compete from a shorter set of tees.
