SOUTHERN PINES — Top point-earners in the Carolinas Men’s and Senior Men’s amateur player rankings headline a contingent of 24 golfers who will represent the Carolinas team against their Virginias counterparts at the 71st Captain’s Putter Matches, set for this Friday-Saturday, at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot, Va.

Eleven players return from last year’s Carolinas team. The Carolinas reclaimed the Captain’s Putter Trophy last year Virginias’ four-year win streak, which was a first in the history of the event for Virginias. The Carolinas team leads all-time, 47-21-1.

Salisbury’s Nick Lyerly, a senior at East Rowan High School and a college commit to UNC Greensboro, was selected as a Carolinas team member.

The Captain’s Putter Matches return to Kinloch Golf Club for the first time since 2006, when the Carolinas team won 27½-20½.

In addition to Lyerly, the Carolinas team includes: Matthew Crenshaw, Burlington; Parker Dudley, Charleston; David Gies II, Charlotte; Jarrett Grimes, Columbia; Scott Harvey, Greensboro; Steve Harwell, Mooresville; Joe Jaspers, Huntersville; Tyler Lucas, Rock Hill; Daniel Neveu, Pinehurst; Kevin O’Connell, Raleigh; Justin Tereshko, Greensboro; Paul Tucker, Waxhaw; Austin Zoller, Summerville, S.C.
