Augusta State junior Emmett Turner posted a one-under par 69--134 to win medalist honors during stroke play qualifying at the 89th Amateur
Championship of the Carolinas Golf Association at Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, SC.

in Santee, SC.
Former CGA champions Gregg Jones of Florence, SC (2000, 2001 South Carolina Amateur Match Play Champion) and Paul Simson of Raleigh (11 time CGA champion including the 1991 Carolinas Amateur) will be seeded numbers three and four respectively.

qualifying on Thursday. A six-for-one playoff was held at seven-over par 147 for the final match play position. Ty Lefler of Apex, NC won the playoff on the second hole after sinking a 36-foot birdie putt. Among the players
he defeated was former Clemson golfer Tripp James.
Lefler will face the number one seed and defending champion Brandon Hiott of Walterboro, SC in the first round.
