PINEHURST, N.C. (December 30, 2015) -- Hometown favorites Sarah Bae and Joshua Martin won their respective divisions of the 7th Carolinas Young Amateur.  The tournament was shortened to 18-holes after the second round was canceled due to heavy rain which caused the golf course to flood and become unplayable.  Bae, a junior at NC State, scorched her first nine with a six under par 30 on the Magnolia course at Pinewild CC in Pinehurst, NC.  Bae continued her great play with a one under par 35 on the back nine to finish with a round of seven under 65.  Martin, a freshman at UNC-Chapel Hill, played two great nines of four under par 32 on both sides and ended with a round of 64.
 
Bae, the 2013 Carolinas Young Amateur champion, finished five shots ahead of Annika Bovender of Mt. Pleasant, SC.  Bovender struggled on the front nine, but came back on the back side with a four under par 32 to finish at two under par 70 and a second place finish.  Taylor Dodson of Aiken, SC also broke par with her round of 71 which gave her a third place finish.  Emily Brooks of Chapel Hill, NC Jaelyn Tindal of Rock Hill, SC both shot even par 72 and finished tied for fourth.
 
Martin, the 2014 NC Amateur champion, had a tight race with Tim Conover of Holly Springs, NC who finished alone is second place just one shot back after his five under par 65.  Alex Smalley of Wake Forest, NC ended two shots back in third place after a round of 67.  Defending champion Austin Morrison of Charlotte, NC struggled and finished with a round of 79.  Miller Capps of Denver, NC, the 2013 Carolinas Young Amateur champion finished with a round of even 72.
