North Lincoln wins 2A golf state title

SOUTHERN PINES Justin Clement of West Davidson fired a brilliant seven-under par 64 on Tuesday to catapult up the leader board and win the individual championship of the 24th annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A men¹s golf championships at the Longleaf Golf and Country Club on Tuesday.

Clement, who was third after Monday's round, blistered the back nine with a 30 and wound up with a 136 total. His round of 64 was the lowest ever shot in an NCHSAA championship and his 136 total was the second best all-time, behind a 134 shot by East Davidson¹s John Carter III in 1999 at Broken Arrow in Statesville.

Clement's score was seven shots better than North Lincoln's Miller Capps, who had rounds of 74 and 69 for a 143 total on Longleaf's par-71, 6,543-yard layout. Zach Lawing of North Lincoln and first-day leader Scott Novicki of South Lenoir tied for third at 146, 10 shots off the pace.

Led by Capps and Lawing, North Lincoln stormed to the team title by a whopping 18 shots with a team total of 600. Mayodan Dalton McMichael was second at 618 and South Lenoir placed third at 621.
