VILLAGE OF PINEHURST, North Carolina – National Amateur Team player Corey Conners fell in the final match play round at the North & South Amateur Championship at Pinehurst to American Michael Cromie, 4 & 3.
Conners made it seem easy advancing to the final, defeating his previous opponents 6&5, 4&3 and 7&6. The Kent State Golden Flash seemed to have met his match in the finale, however, losing to Cromie, a Georgia Bulldog, in 15 holes.
The Listowel, Ont., native currently sits No. 39 on the World Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR) and hopes to improve that number after this week’s impressive performance in the strong field at Pinehurst.
