A hot start in the final round propelled Charlotte's Stephen Woodard to the Carolinas Mid-Amateur title.

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. (April 7, 2019)--Stephen Woodard of Charlotte had to wait to get started in the 39th Carolinas Mid-Amateur Championship, but he had plenty of reason to be delighted with the finish, even with the tournament shortened from 54 to 36 holes.

After hostile weather on Friday forced cancellation of Friday’s first round at The Reserve Club, Woodard bogeyed his opening hole of the tournament on Saturday. Then things started looking up for the former touring professional, now a reinstated amateur.

"I played a practice round on Thursday and was excited to play on Friday, my birthday, so I was anxious after having to wait,” Woodard said.

The 46 year-old quickly rebounded with a birdie his next hole on the way to an opening 3-under-par 69. Woodard started the final round one-shot off the lead and closed with a 70 on Sunday to win the title by one stroke over Daniel Neveu of Pinehurst and Thomas Owen of Fayetteville.

Woodard kick-started his final round with an opening nine two-under 34.

"I knew the second round was going to be a shootout, so I wanted to see how many birdies I could make,” he said.

After hitting it in the water on his ninth hole, he got up-and-down for par to keep the momentum. "I was putting well all week, so that helped with scoring,” he said.

Woodard did not look at the leaderboard until his final hole. After leaving himself with a 4-footer for the win, Woodard drained it.

The first-time Carolinas Golf Association champion was thrilled about his win and added, "I grew up in Charlotte and have been playing in CGA events since I was 11 years old. This one means a lot to put my name on this trophy with a lot of great names."

Neveu shot an opening 68 and backed it up with a second round even-par, 72. Owen played his first 18 holes in 1 over par but came out firing in his second round. Owen birdied three of his first four holes to start the day. After adding two more birdies, Owen finished with a 5-under, 67 and a two-round total of 140

Woodard also collects the trophy for finishing first in the 40+ Division. The CGA added a 40+ Division to the Mid-Amateur Championships this year.
