David Kocher Repeats at 53rd SignArt North Carolina Open

Tournament Raises $8,700 for Hendrick Family Foundation

(Kannapolis, NC) – Amateur golfer and 2016 defending champion, David Kocher, captured the 53rd SignArt North Carolina Open Presented by Mobipaid on June 8 after an intense final round at The Club at Irish Creek. Kocher and  fellow amateurs Eric Bae, Thomas Eldridge, and Aman Gupta, finished 36 holes tied at 206 (-6).  On the first playoff hole, the 221-yard par-3 #18, all competitors made par.  On the 406-yard par-4 #1, Kocher drained an eight-foot putt for birdie and the repeat victory.

Kocher, a senior on the University of Maryland golf team, began the day tied for second at 136 (-6) with fellow amateur Thomas Eldridge.  They sat three strokes behind Concord, NC local amateur Aman Gupta’s 139 (-9).  Breezy conditions and the demanding Davis Love III course design proved challenging for everyone on top the leaderboard, thus the tie at the end of regulation.

Kocher is only the fourth person in the 53-year history of the North Carolina Open to successfully defend his title.

168 of the top playing PGA Professionals and amateurs in North and South Carolina came together at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, North Carolina for a shot at one of the region’s most prestigious golf tournaments and a unique chance to support The Hendrick Family Foundation – the charitable arm of Hendrick Motorsports and the Hendrick Auto Group.
