Scott Harvey cruised to a record nine-shot victory in the North Carolina Mid-Amateur Championship.

HIGH POINT, N.C. (September 10, 2017) -- Scott Harvey of Greensboro had been thinking about this moment all year.

With his victory Sunday at the 24th North Carolina Mid-Amateur Championship, the 39-year-old matches his father, Bill Harvey, with eight overall CGA titles. Bill Harvey was an amateur golf legend who passed away in 2013.

"I was trying to make the Walker Cup team, so I didn't play in any CGA events," said Harvey, the third ranked mid-amateur in the world. "All year I was thinking, 'I really need to play in a CGA event. I want the same amount of wins as my dad'. That personally, to me, means a lot."

Harvey won the championship held at High Point Country Club's Willow Creek Course by nine strokes, the largest margin in the event's history, with rounds of 68-67-74—209). "This is my only CGA event this year, and to be able to win it, I'm very fortunate," said Harvey, the six-time reigning CGA Player of the Year.

In eight North Carolina Mid-Amateur starts, Harvey has notched two wins and five runner-up finishes.  

Starting the final round with a six-stroke lead, Harvey placed his opening tee shot well off the fairway behind a tree. Making bogey, he quickly rebounded with a birdie on the second hole. Hitting 10-of-14 fairways and 8-of-18 greens in regulation, Harvey recorded three birdies and five bogeys.

His three-day total of 7-under-par was the only score below par as the field faced Willow Creek's difficult greens.

The only player to break par Sunday at Willow Creek, Daniel Neveu of Pinehurst, carded two-under 70 to catapult into second place (74-74-70--218). He shared runner-up honors with Justin Pennell of Lenoir (68-78-72) and Ryan Sharpe of Greensboro (73-70-75).
