AMHERST - The Amherst Golf Club's men's championship has a new titleholder - Zach Carson.
Golfing about five days per week paid off for the 18-year-old as he finished with the weekend with a 149 (75-74) to earn the title.
"I hit a lot of good shots, but I didn't do very well with my putting," Carson said Sunday.
"I got things together on the back nine on both days, so it was a good weekend."
Despite some dreary weather on Saturday, 100 golfers took to the course for a shot at the title, something Mitch Roy was looking to defend from last year.
Golf pro Frank McShane said the green staff was able to work on the course to get things ready for the golfers, something Carson praised.
"The course was in good condition even though it was wet and the greens were rolling good," said Carson.
Hoping to claim his title for a second year, Roy ended two strokes behind Carson, finishing with 151 (78-73) over the two days.
"Mitch and Mark (Gould) were definitely my biggest competition out there. Mitch did really well (Sunday), but I know he had an off day (Saturday)."
For about a decade, Carson's been working at perfecting his game and just came off the CN Future Links Atlantic Championships where he tied for 17th with a 227 finish.
The weekend before, Carson finished seventh in the Nova Scotia Golf Association junior championships.
