MILL SPRING, N.C. — Greg Earnhardt fired a 6-under par round of 66 on Sunday at Bright's Creek Golf Club to surge ahead for a four-shot win at the North Carolina Mid-Amateur.

The win was in comeback fashion the whole way for Earnhardt, who after a 73 in the opening-round was four back of a group of leaders at 3-under 69.

Crenshaw settled for a second-place finish after shooting 73 on Sunday, which including double-bogeying the first hole of the day. He rebounded, though, remaining steady through the remainder of the round to go 1-under his final 17 holes and make no bogeys.

Tying for third place were Steven Brame and defending champion Joe Jaspers at 4-under par 212.
