PINEHURST, N.C. (WNCT) The J.H. Rose High School boys golf team won the 3A team state championship in convincing fashion Tuesday at Pinehurst No. 6, led by individual state champion Luke Mosely.

The Rampants finished 17 strokes ahead of runner-up Terry Sanford.

While J.H. Rose swept the team and individual honors, the Individual Championship needed two sudden-death holes to decide the winner. Four players tied for the top spot at +5 for the tournament, including the overnight leader Nick Norman from Forestview. The senior was joined by fellow senior Davis DeLille from High Point Central, junior Gavin Drose from Cape Fear, and sophomore Luke Mosely from J.H. Rose. 

The foursome of leaders returned to the 18th tee to break the tie atop the leaderboard with Mosely and Norman carding pars. Drose bogeyed the 18th in the tiebreaker and DeLille tripled, dropping them from contention for the Individual State Championship. The pars sent Mosley and Norman back to the 18th tee again, and this time it was Mosley knocking down a birdie putt while Norman managed another par, giving the sophomore from J.H. Rose the Individual Title. Mosely became the first Rampant men’s golfer to win the Individual State Championship on the same day that his team won the program’s first team State Championship. 

Rose bested Terry Sanford by 17 shots, posting a +40 total of 616. Mosely was aided by Cameron Hardison who bounced back from a day one round of +7, 79, to be one of two golfers in the field to go under par in a round. Hardison posted a 1-under, 71 on the final day of the tournament to finish in a tie for fifth with Terry Sanford’s Thomas Horne. The lone other player to go under par for an 18-hole total was Gavin Drose, who carded a 1-under, 71, on Tuesday to lift himself into the championship tiebreaker.

The 3A Men’s Golf Championship Sportsmanship Award Winners for this year were Parks Helms from Terry Sanford and Cameron Hardison from J.H. Rose.
