SANFORD—Patrick Cover of Cornelius W.A. Hough birdied the first playoff hole to take top individual honors on Tuesday in the 79th annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 4-A men’s golf championships at Carolina Trace Country Club.

Cover had a 68 on Monday and an even par 72 in the final round for a 140 total. Raleigh Millbrook’s Stephen Franken climbed into a tie after 36 holes for the individual title with a 68 on Tuesday, setting the stage for the playoff.

The championship was contested on a par-72 layout set at 6,698 yards for the NCHSAA event.

Raleigh Broughton captured the team championship by eight shots over defending champ Southern Pines Pinecrest with a winning total of 592. Broughton captured its sixth NCHSAA championship since 1998 and it was also gave a Wake County school the men’s 4-A team golf title for the 19th time in the last 28 years, including five of the last six.

Pinecrest is the last non-Wake County school to win, taking the title in 2008 and last year.

Hough and Charlotte Myers Park were tied for third at 609.

Prior to 1986, all NCHSAA schools competed for a single title in an open tournament. Play went to three classifications in 1986 and then to four classes beginning with the 1998 tournaments.

A total of 84 golfers began play in the two-day tournament.
