March 20, 2015

 
Final Results
 
     Cannon School from Concord, NC came from behind to capture the 3rd North State High School Challenge hosted by the Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, NC.  Cannon started the day two shots behind Pinecrest High School from Pinehurst, NC, “we talked about both Hough and Pinecrest before the round, they know we are going to have to shoot under par to win today,” said coach Pat Whisnant about his team.  William Gordon, a future Vanderbilt University golfer, helped propel his team as he started hot firing a 31 on his outward nine.  Gordon added two more birdies on his back nine to finish at five under for the day and four under for the tournament.  All five Cannon players played well to help the team to victory proving to be a true team effort.  Michael Sanders, Noah Edmondson, Tim Bunten and Davis Kiger contributed at least one score for team over the two rounds.
     Pinecrest gave a valiant effort led by the 3rd North State High School Challenge medalist, Joshua Martin, as well as second place finisher, Eric Bae, but fell short by a single shot.  Walker Cress of Concord High School finished tied for third with Gordon after shooting a second round 67. Mason Elmore of Ardrey Kell High School rounded out the top five individuals finishing at three under the par for the tournament.

     The North State High School Challenge is conducted by the Tarheel Youth Golf Association and the North Carolina Junior Golf foundation. The event is a team and individual event consisting of 36 holes of stroke play. The TYGA and NCJG would like to thank head golf professional, Alan Cress, superintendent Artie Helton, and their crews, as well as all the members from the Club at Irish Creek for their generousity.
