Britt Builds Lead at Carolinas Mid-Am

RALEIGH, N.C. -- First round results of the 35th Carolinas Mid-Amateur Championship held on North Ridge Country Club's Lakes course in Raleigh, N.C. on Thursday, April 17, 2015. Par 36-36--72, 6,600 yards (Course Rating: 72.9/134).

Sherrill Britt, a 50 year-old contractor from West, N.C. holds the lead after a six-under-par 66. His bogey-free round included four birdies and an 100-yard hole-out for eagle on the par-4 14th. The key to his low round was avoiding bogeys, "When I hit a bad tee shot, I [still] had an opening," Britt commented, "I think I only missed three greens." He is seeking his first Carolinas Golf Association championship title, having finished runner-up multiple times.

In a tournament for men ages 30 and older, Parks Price of Taylorsville, N.C., who turned 30 one day prior to the start of the championship, is in second at four-under-par 68. Four players are tied for third place at 3-under-par.

Paul Simson of Raleigh, N.C., a four-time Carolinas Mid-Amateur champion had a costly double-bogey on the 17th hole and finished his round at even-par.    

2014 champion Matthew Crenshaw of Burlington, N.C. is not defending his title as he is recovering from wrist surgery and hopes to return to competitive golf this summer.
