May 17, 2012
North Carolina



BUIES CREEK --  Stanhope Johnson of Kernersville Bishop McGuinness fired a four-under par 68 on Tuesday to take his second consecutive individual championship in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A men’s golf championships at the Keith Hills Country Club.

Johnson entered the day four shots behind teammate William Whitacre in the 15th annual tournament, and they were the only players who had sub-par rounds on Monday.  But Whitacre had a 73 in the final round to finish one shot behind his charging teammate.  

Nick Adams of Rosewood placed third overall with a 141 total after an outstanding 67 on Tuesday, the lowest round of the day.

The championship was contested on a par-72, 6,625-yard layout for the NCHSAA event.

            Led by Whitacre and Johnson, Bishop McGuinness opened up a 22-stroke lead over the field after the first day and then steamrolled to a 52-shot victory in the team standings.  The Villains' team score of 578 is the lowest in the history of the 1-A tournament.

            Lake Norman Charter was runner-up with a 630 total, and East Surry was third at 640.The best four of six individual scores counted toward the team total.

            Prior to 1986, all NCHSAA schools competed for a single title in an open tournament. Play went to three classifications in 1986 and then to four classes beginning with the 1998 tournaments.

            A total of 84 golfers began play in the two-day tournament.
