Ulrich & Perry Capture NC Senior Open Wins
October 27, 2020 (New London, NC) – The 2020 Carolinas PGA North Carolina Senior Open is complete. An extensive fog delay this morning forced Round Two to be limited to a nine-hole round. Once the fog lifted, conditions were nearly perfect at Old North State Club.
The 27-hole championship required one additional hole to crown a champion. Gus Ulrich, PGA got up and down for birdie on the par-5 18th during the first playoff hole. He defeated Dale Fuller (a) who made a par on the final hole. Dale set the pace in round one with a 3-under 69. This included four birdies on the back nine. Gus started the day two shots off the lead after firing a 71 in round 1. In round 2, he birdied 11, 12, and 14 on his way to a 2-under 34.
