Edmondson/Byman Wire to Wire

Preston Edmondson of Morrisville and Ed Byman of Raleigh went wire-to-wire to win the 16th NC Senior Four-Ball Championship hosted by Mimosa Hills Golf Club in Morganton. Edmondson and Byman fired a tournament low 62 in the first round and never looked back as they both captured their first CGA Championship.

 

“What a great week, it was not the greatest weather but the course was in great shape so everyone had fun,” Byman said. After a second round 66 the duo led by four over John Fritz and Doug Meggs both of Mint Hill and Tom Fagerli of Yadkinville and Bill Long of Ahoskie. The second round leaders quickly saw their lead shrink to one stroke as Fritz and Meggs came out hot birding four of their first five holes. “It took us awhile to get going and those two came at us with all those birdies to start,” Byman said. The leaders were to make birdies on No. 7, 9, 10, 12, and 14. “We really got it going during that middle stretch. Once we found our rhythm we kept it going and created some separation,” Byman continued. With his partner in trouble off the tee on No. 18, Edmondson hit his approach to six feet and rolled in the birdie putt for a round of seven-under-par 65. That gave the tandem a championship total of 23-under-par 197 which was more than enough to claim their first CGA championship.

 

There were a host of teams that finished at 19-under-par, tied for second. Frank Golden of Charlotte and Macon Moye of Pinehurst used a round of 64 to join the group sharing runner-up honors. Paired along with Golden and Moye were Robby Kirby and Nolan Mills III both Charlotte. Kirby and Mills made their way around the course in 64 strokes as well, to place them in a tie for second. Charlie Parks of Asheboro and Doug Owens of Albemarle posted the second lowest round of the day to also vault into the tie for second.

 

Joe Stepp and Vic Glenn both of Hickory had the round of the day, tying the tournament low with a 62, which was capitalized with an ace on the ninth hole by Joe Stepp as he hit a 5-iron from 176 for the hole-in-one. Their 62 propelled them into 5th place. Another ace was recorded by Joe Davis of Gastonia as he hit an 8-iron from 158 yards on No. 6. Davis and his partner Joel Campanella of Huntersville finished 8th.

 

The CGA would like to thank the members at Mimosa Hills for their generosity. We would also like to thank Head Professional Jimmy Piercy, Head Superintendent Dan Winters, Professional Emeritus Dan Dobson and their staffs for their help throughout the week. Next year’s championship is scheduled at Benvenue Country Club in Rocky Mount, N.C.
