LAURINBURG — The Exteriors “R” Us Area Championship took place at three Scotland County golf courses last weekend, and a trio of winners scored championship hardware.
The tournament, which was played at Cypress Creek Golf Link, Deercroft Golf Club and Scotch Meadows Country Club during a three-day stretch, featured 54 holes of stroke play with flighting after two rounds.
Will Morgan, a former golfer at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, won the Area Amateur Championship with a final score of 198, shooting a 64 on Sunday at Scotch Meadows to pull away for the 21-stroke victory.
Ted Rogers won the Senior Championship (60 years old and up) and Larry Wolfe took home the Super Senior Championship (70 and up). Two contestants over 80 also competed — CD Bounds (85) and Bill Morgan (84).
