RALEIGH, N.C. (July 17, 2023) -- Results of the 17th Carolinas Pro-Junior Championship at The Country Club at Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh, N.C. on July 17, 2023.


Bobby Anglin of Mars Hill, N.C., and Connor Warren of Spruce Pine, N.C., turned a dream into reality today at The Country Club at Wakefield Plantation after one round of stroke play in the 17th Carolinas Pro-Junior Championship. They ended the tournament with an overall score of 5 under-par, 66, eventually securing the win in a one-hole playoff. 


"Connor and I have been working together for the past six or seven years. Winning this tournament has been a goal of ours for the past couple of years. It is a good feeling to win this one," remarked Anglin. 


The key to Anglin and Warren's round was staying consistent and patient. The pair kept the ball in play and were able to get up and down. Anglin and Warren started the round off strong with a birdie. They maintained the momentum throughout the round with four more birdies and 13 pars. 


"Both of us kept the ball in play and stayed patient. We had some putts that did not go in early, but we stayed patient and focused on hitting quality shots which we did," stated Anglin. 


This win and tournament was very special for the duo as they've been working together for several years and working hard to capture the championship. Anglin and Warren came up short last year as they tied for fifth with a score of 3-under-par, 69. In addition, this is also Anglin's first win with the CGA. 


"We came up short last year, but we got ready and practiced more. Having Bobby as a really good partner helped, and it means a lot to win with him," stated Warren. 


In a one-hole playoff, Anglin and Warren defeated Matt McCord of Holly Springs, N.C., and Dylan Takenaga of Durham, N.C.. The runner-up duo carded six birdies, 11 pars, and one bogey on the round to also finish at five-under-par, 66. 


Tied for third, both sides with a score of four-under-par, 67, were Kasey McIlvaine of Raleigh, N.C. and Nick Zurowski of Apex, N.C., along with Andy Zachowicz of Statesville, N.C., and Riley Naylor of Mooresville, N.C.
