Paul Simson of Raleigh, NC defended his title winning the 10th Carolinas Super Senior Championship hosted by Gaston Country Club. With the win, Simson has now captured his astonishing 34th Carolinas Golf Association Championship. The retired insurance agent added his second Carolinas Super Senior winning by one shot on his 67th birthday.

 

Having won 12 different CGA Championships Simson knows that none of them come easy. "I putted really well yesterday, and put myself in good position" said Simson.  After an opening round 66, Simson held a four shot advantage over Russ Perry of Winston-Salem, NC and Gary Hull of Cornelius, NC. The first round leader needed all four shots coming down the stretch. With a bogey on 17, his lead had dwindled down to one shot over Hull and Perry. Playing with Perry and Hull in the final group Simson was able to rise to the occasion with a birdie on his last hole to capture the win. "I had a two shot lead with two to play and felt pretty good, all of us were on 18 in two but Russ and Hull had good looks at eagle after I missed mine. Luckily for me they slid by."

 

Simson now looks forward to his next defense title, playing in 33rd North Carolina Senior Championship next week at Starmount Forest CC in Greensboro, NC. A tournament he has won three years in a row and a record nine times. "I still have to go out and play, these guys aren't going to give it to me. There are a lot of good players out here."

 

In the 70+ division, Lynn Martin from Travelers Rest, SC, held on for a one shot win over Jared Long Aiken, SC. Martin shot rounds of 70-74 to take home his first career CGA Championship.

 

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer who has reached his 65th birthday, maintains a residence in North Carolina or South Carolina, is a member in good standing of a club which is a member of the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA), and has an active GHIN® USGA Handicap Index® that does not exceed 15.4 at a CGA member club.
