The final round of the 106th Carolinas Amateur Championship saw 13 ties or lead changes, but when all was said and done, Lansdon Robbins of Davidson, N.C. came out on top. The UNC-Wilmington Seahawk shot a bogey-free 67 on Sunday at Cape Fear Country Club to finish the tournament at 17-under-par, 271 total.

 

Robbins fended off Peter Fountain of Raleigh, N.C. and Walker Jones of Sumter, S.C., both of whom finished one shot off the lead at 16-under-par, 272 total.

 

“It was a battle all day. It was back and forth,” Robbins said. “Walker and Peter both played great. I knew playing those last five holes at even par wasn’t going to win it. I would have liked to get a couple more birdies than just one, but it was good enough. I was able to get ahead, hold off the competition and get the job done.”

 

Starting the day two shots back of the lead, Robbins pulled to within one with a par on No. 10. He then birdied three out of five holes (Nos. 11, 13 and 15) to tie and eventually take the lead. Robbins said that the birdie on No. 15 gave him some momentum, but all of that was suddenly stopped with a weather delay.

 

“Standing over a three-footer on No. 16 for an hour-and-half is not the best scenario to be in,” he said. “I was just able to relax for a little bit and get focused to go back out.”

 

On the week, Robbins played the back nine at 9-under-par with several scorable holes. Ultimately, it was what he needed to put the championship away. With a pars on Nos. 16, 17 and 18, Robbins avoided a late push from his group mates.

 

“It means a lot. It’s been a rough past year-and-a-half or so with injuries and all the stuff that happened this past season with it getting cancelled,” Robbins said. “I only had two opportunities to play in tournaments this summer, and I won them both, so I think I took advantage of a weird summer pretty well.”

 

The CGA would like to extend a thank you to the members and staff of Cape Fear Country Club, specifically to Director of Golf Joey Hines, Head Golf Professional Chris Byrd, Golf Course Superintendent Adam Sanders, General Manager Mary Geiss and the Board of Directors for their hospitality in hosting the 106th Carolinas Amateur Championship. We would also like to thank the players and spectators for their understanding and adherence to the new COVID-19 tournament protocols.

 

Next year’s Carolinas Amateur Championship is set to travel to Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, N.C. Dates for the 107th Carolinas Amateur Championship will be July 8-11.
