Joshua Martin of Pinehurst, N.C. is the 2018 Carolinas Amateur champion. Martin shot a one-over-par, 73 in today's final round but was still able to fend off his competitors, winning the tournament by three strokes with a total score of eight-under-par.

Martin began the round on fire, making four birdies on the first five holes and it looked like he would run away with the title. However, he ended the front nine with two bogeys and a double bogey to have his lead reduced to only two strokes.

"Today I started out really hot, but then it was pretty much carnage out there," joked the rising UNC senior, "That's the way it goes sometimes and I just had to laugh those off, and get back to work."

The back nine proved to be a similar story, with one bogey and the rest pars, but his closest competitors, Spencer Oxendine of Fayetteville, N.C. and Nolan Mills, IV of Charlotte, N.C., couldn't take advantage of his struggles.

"Once I got a five shot lead with four holes to play I felt pretty good," said Martin, "I was just able to cruise in with some pars."

This title gives Martin his third CGA title after winning the North Carolina Amateur in 2014 and the Carolinas Young Amateur in 2015.

"It's special winning at home. Just looking at the trophy and seeing all the past champions, you know this tournament is a big deal, so it's special," Martin added with a smile.

The Capers Cup Club Team Competition was won by Country Club of North Carolina with Scott Lincicome, Jackson Bode, and Thomas Morrison representing the club at this week's tournament.

The championship format is 72 holes of stroke play. After 36 holes, the field was cut to the low 60 scorers and ties.

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer who has reached his 13th birthday by July 12, 2018, 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 at a CGA member club that does not exceed 10.4.
