KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (June 6, 2013) -- Spencer Lawson, an amateur from Davidson, N.C. (and rising senior golf team member at ASU) captured the 49th Toshiba/CBi North Carolina Open held this week at the Club at Irish Creek. Lawson, a rising senior at Arizona State University, scored a 67-65-70=202 (-11) to take the top spot by three strokes.

In a sign that amateur golf in the Carolinas is stronger than ever, an unprecedented 32 players survived the 36 hole cut to the top 60 and ties. Taylor Coalson of Dobsville finished T3 at 6-under, while Roy Dixon of Salisbury finished T6 at 3-under.

Finishing in second place was Carolinas PGA Professional Jeffrey Peck, Head PGA Professional at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte, NC. As the highest placing professional in the field with a 69-68-68=205 (-8), Peck takes home a $4,000 share of the $37,000 championship purse and 150 points towards the 2013 CPGA Bob Boyd Player of the Year Points Challenge.
