Eric Bae of Cary, pictured left, needed extra holes, but captured his first Carolinas Golf Association title winning the N.C. Junior Boys’ 13 and Under Championship at Asheboro Golf Club on Tuesday.
After bad weather on Monday afternoon, the tournament format was changed to 36-holes of stroke play to ensure completing the event on time. After 36 holes, Bae and Harrison Rhoades of Raleigh were locked in a tie at one over par 141 on the par 70 Donald Ross designed course.
Bae and Rhoades both parred the first two extra holes, but Rhoades missed a sharp breaking four footer for par on the third hole leaving Bae only needing to tap in his par putt for the win.
