Laird ties for second in U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship stroke play, moves on to match play

Last weekend, a tropical storm named Florence wreaked havoc on the Carolinas, leaving behind a path of destruction that many residents, especially on the coast, are still trying to recover from.

This weekend, a golfer from Florence unleashed a different kind of assault on the region. Stephen Behr, a South Carolina native and former Clemson University All-American, was the only competitor among the 264 in the field at the 38th U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship to produce a pair of sub-70 rounds at Charlotte Country Club and stroke-play co-host Carolina Golf Club, an achievement that earned him medalist honors and the top seed for match play, which begins on Monday at Charlotte C.C.

On Sunday, Behr, who became eligible for this championship when he turned 25 in April, carded a 3-under 68 at Carolina Golf Club for a 36-hole total of 5-under. He was two strokes clear of 2017 medalist Bradford Tilley, 35, of Easton, Conn., 2008 U.S. Mid-Amateur runner-up Todd Mitchell, 40, of Bloomington, Ill., and former University of Tulsa golfer and Cedar Ridge Country Club member Rob Laird, 31, who closed with a pair of birdies at Carolina Golf Club.

Laird won the Oklahoma Golf Association Mid-Amatuer Championship in 2017 at Cedar Ridge.


The 16-for-12 playoff for the final match-play spots will take place at 7:30 a.m. EDT at Charlotte Country Club’s 10th hole. If necessary, the playoff will continue on Nos. 16, 17 and 18. The Round of 64 begins at 9 a.m, from the first tee. Match play continues through Thursday’s 36-hole championship match.

FS1 will broadcast the semifinals and afternoon 18 of the championship match on Wednesday and Thursday from 4-6 p.m.

Admission is free.


  • The cut for match play came at 5-over 147.
  • Defending champion Matt Parziale, of Brockton, Mass., recovered from his first-round 76 at Carolina Golf Club with a 3-under 68 at Charlotte C.C. to qualify for match play. He is one of three USGA champions to qualify, joining reigning U.S. Senior Amateur champion Jeff Wilson, of Fairfield, Calif., and Stewart Hagestad.
  • Benjamin Day, of New Haven, Conn., carded a 74 at Charlotte Country Club on Sunday, the same course where his father, Edward, competed in the U.S. Amateur 46 years ago. Edward missed the 36-hole cut in the final year the championship was conducted at 72 holes of stroke play. Day also failed to qualify by one stroke.
  • Danny Evelyn, of Charlotte, N.C., matched the low round of the championship with a 4-under 67 at Charlotte C.C. to easily qualify for match play at 1-under 141 His brother, Matt, however, failed to advance with a 36-hole total of 154. The Evelyn brothers both attended Cardinal Newman High in West Palm Beach, Fla., the same school that produced two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka. Danny played junior golf against Brooks in south Florida.
  • Steve Wilson, competing in the final year of his 10-year exemption for winning the 2008 title, was disqualified (Rule 6-3a) for failing to show up for his 8:47 a.m. starting time at Carolina Golf Club. He opened with an 82 at Charlotte C.C.
  • Four-time champion Nathan Smith headlined the group of past USGA champions to miss the cut. He joined Scott Harvey, Michael McCoy, Sammy Schmitz, Dave Ryan, Randal Lewis and Sean Knapp to miss the cut.
  • Last year’s runner-up Josh Nichols, of Apex, N.C., also failed to qualify along with 2014 runner-up Brad Nurski.


Rob Laird, of Tulsa, Okla. (68-71—139) on returning to Charlotte Country Club for match play:

“I feel good about my game. Charlotte Country Club fits my eye better. I am excited to get back there. But it is a different mindset. It’s a little overwhelming when you have 263 guys out there as opposed to just one you are playing against. The rest of the evening will be spent switching gears. The game doesn’t change at all, but the mindset has to adapt. Match play is more fun for me.”

2016 champion Stewart Hagestad, of Newport Beach, Calif. (67-74—141) on his second-round performance:

“My goal going into today was to try and win medalist [honors], so in my eyes, I wasn’t good enough. I think there’s some things to go work on and improve upon. Besides the [3-over par] start, I didn’t play that badly.”

Danny Evelyn, of Charlotte, N.C. (74-67—141) on growing up with two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka (both attended Cardinal Newman High in West Palm Beach, Fla.):

“We played junior golf together. I’ve known him since he was probably 9 or 10. No [text messages] this week. I’m sure he’s got bigger things on his mind. He’s playing in the Tour Championship and heading over to the other side of the pond [for next week’s Ryder Cup in France] will be a major thing for him. Maybe if I win, I’ll give him a text.”

U.S. Navy pilot Benjamin Hayes, of Jacksonville, Fla. (70-71—141) on qualifying for match play:

“Awesome. That was the goal coming in here. I felt going in to this that I had the game to do it. Obviously, I haven’t competed much in the last few years, but I know if I play my game I can hang with the best of them. It’s a cool feeling.”

Brett Boner, of Charlotte, N.C. (71-69—140) on playing his final round of stroke play at his home club (Carolina G.C.):

“Not trying to be dramatic, but probably the hardest round of golf I’ve ever played. Just because it’s my home course and I put a lot of pressure to play well in front of all my friends and family. But once I got out here, I got comfortable. This golf course isn’t set up like I normally see it as a member. A lot of the pins are tucked, and the greens are as firm and fast as they can ever be, so you are not used to that. But it was a blast and I’m very thankful to shoot a good number.”

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Results from Sunday’s second round of stroke play at the 2018 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship, played at 7,382-yard, par-71 Charlotte Country Club and 6,937-yard, par-71 Carolina Golf Club.

CCC – Charlotte Country Club, CGC – Carolina Golf Club
