Woodard Goes for Mid-Amateur Sweep

Stephen Woodard of Charlotte, NC looks to win both Mid-Amateur Championships in 2019

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (September 21, 2019) – Second round results of the 26th North Carolina Mid-Amateur Championship at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, N.C. on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

2019 Carolinas Mid-Amateur Champion, Stephen Woodard of Charlotte, N.C. stands alone at the top of the leaderboard after the second round of the 26th N.C. Mid-Amateur Championship. Woodard birdied three of his last five holes at Irish Creek to take a four-shot lead into the final round over Thomas Owen of Fayetteville, N.C. and Bobby Dean of Charlotte, N.C.

Woodard won the Carolinas Mid-Amateur Championship in April, a rain shortened championship, but his mindset will not change this time with an overnight lead. “That tournament was different with the rainout…but I am going to keep being aggressive and try to putt the way I have been putting.” Woodard is very familiar with Irish Creek and feels comfortable here, “I used to play this course a long time ago with some buddies a lot. I feel comfortable here, I love playing here, I love the greens and I feel at home playing here,” said Woodard.\

A win tomorrow by Woodard would make him only the fourth person ever to win the N.C. Mid-Amateur and the Carolinas Mid-Amateur in the same year since. The previous three people to achieve that feat are Paul Simson (1997), Mike Goodes (2006) and Scott Harvey (2012).  Woodard on what the Mid-Amateur sweep would mean to him, “That would be quite an honor, those are pretty good names to be associated with, but I have got a lot of work to do,” said Woodard.

The cut line at the N.C. Mid-Amateur Championship fell at six-over par 148.  Final Round tee times can be found here: https://cga.golfgenius.com/pages/2200545

The Championship is conducted at 54 holes of stroke-play competition. After 36 holes, the field is cut to the low 60 scores and ties for the final round. An on-course playoff is used to break a tie for the championship. The top 30 scores will receive merchandise and are exempt into the 2020 N.C. Mid-Amateur Championship.

Entry is open to any male amateur golfer who has reached his 25th birthday by September 20, 2019, is a legal resident of North 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.
