Carolinas Open: Scott Harvey falls in playoff
BROWNS SUMMIT, N.C. (May 8, 2014) -- Scott Harvey took it to the limit, but in the end, it was the professional who walked away with the Carolinas Open trophy.
Harvey, a very talented mid-amateur who was part of the winning U.S. Concession Cup squad last weekend, shot a second-round 68 on Wednesday to catapult towards the top of the leaderboard at Bryan Park.
His final-round 1-under 70 was just enough to catch Steve Larick and force a playoff. But after three holes, Larick, the apprentice head professional at Golden Hills, defeated Harvey to win the title.
Larick shot 66 on Wednesday to shoot to the top of the leaderboard and managed a final-round 72 to keep pace with Harvey.
Al Dickens IV, another amateur, took solo third. He shot a final-round 66 to shoot up the leaderboard.
Sherrill Britt (72-71-71) tied for fifth alongside former UNC star Michael McGowan (71-69-74).
