Grady and Scott Newton of Wallburg, N.C. took home the 55th Carolinas Father-Son Championship with a 5-under-par, 67 on Friday at Legacy Golf Links. The duo made seven birdies, including one on their second playoff hole on No.10, to come out on top.

Scott Newton is a four-time runner-up in this event in ‘91, ‘09, ‘13 and ‘15 while he was paired with his father, Ernie Newton. Coming down to the final putt on the second playoff hole, Scott was eager to be crowned the overall champion this year with his son.
