INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. – Former Wake Forest “All American” Kyle Reifers shot a course record tying round of 64 in the Charlotte National Open to claim his first pro title in his first pro event.
Reifers, who originally hails from Dublin, OH, began his round on the back nine and got off to a quick start with a birdie at the par-4 10th followed later by an eagle at the par-5 13th. He would go on to add five more birdies to his card and would later sit by the clubhouse to see if his number was good enough. Turns out the Demon Deacon did just enough to get the job done.
“I knew there were going to be some low scores today, so I just wanted to keep making birdies and make sure I didn’t get comfortable,” said Reifers, who competed for the United States in the 2005 Walker Cup.
“I lost the ACC Championship by one shot and missed the U.S. Open by one shot, so I was not about to sit back and wait for other guys to make mistakes. I really wanted to get off to a good start and go as low as I could.”
Second place was shared by tour regulars Derek Watson and Chris Mundorf. Watson managed to tie the course record as well with his own round of 64, while Mundorf’s round of 65 moved him up the leader board in the final round.
Fourth place went to two time Tarheel Tour winner Dustin Bray of Asheboro, NC. Bray, who shared the first round lead, carded a second round 68 to notch yet another top five finish in what has been an impressive 2006 season.
Adam Gary, Andy Crain, and Fernando Mechereffe all finished at nine under par 135, good enough to share fifth place. Mechereffe threw his name into the course record hat with an outstanding 64 of his own. The Brazilian had the solo course record in his sights, but a late bogey on the par-4 8th, his 17th hole of the day, would end his chances. Crain, who is best known for his signature waggles and use of the word “dude”, managed a final round 67 to record his best finish of the year.
The tour would like to thank Director of Golf Dave Moore, Head Golf Professional Robbie Isenhour, and their staff for all of their help in running this event. The tour would also like to thank Head Golf Course Superintendent Mike Thompson and his respective staff for getting the golf course in immaculate condition after heavy rains earlier in the week.

The Tarheel Tour will take next week off before heading to Concord, NC for the Rocky River Classic on June 27-29.
