Bae goes back to back winning 5th TYGA State Championship

TYGA Boys' State Championship
Keith Hills CC     Buies Creek, N.C.
October 18-19, 2014
 
   Final Results
 
Defending champion Eric Bae of Pinehurst, NC found himself down by one heading into the final round of the 5th TYGA State Championship, but came from behind to win and secure back to back wins at Keith Hills CC in Buies Creek, NC.  Bae, a junior at Pinecrest High School, rolled in a 25-foot birdie putt to defeat Patrick Stephenson of Four Oaks, NC on the first playoff hole.  Stephenson, who shared the first round lead with Preyer Fountain of Raleigh, shot one under par 35 on the front side and had a three shot lead over Bae and Fountain with nine holes left.  Bae stayed calmed and kept playing solid golf until the sixteenth hole where he made birdie to pull within one stroke.  A final hole birdie by Bae tied Stephenson and forced the two into a playoff.  “I knew I was down at the turn, but tried to stay aggressive and was able to birdie 18 to force the playoff” stated Bae.
 
This annual junior championship is conducted by the Tarheel Youth Golf Association (TYGA), a division of the Carolinas Golf Association.  TYGA wishes to thank Campbell University, Keith Hills CC, golf course superintendent Damon Dean and head golf professional Martha Sutton for hosting the tournament and to volunteer rules officials Bob Yow, Glenn Camp, John Funk, Bob Hood and Leon Lucas who all contributed to a great event.
