Bass repeats as city golf champ

ASHEBORO — JD Bass shot a 10-under-par 203 for three rounds for an overwhelming victory to repeat as champion in the Asheboro City Amateur.

Bass completed play in the 60th version of the event with a 3-under 69 on Sunday at Pinewood Country Club’s Spruce Course. That gave him a 10-shot gap on runner-up Sam Davidson.

Bass began with Friday’s 6-under 65 at Asheboro Country Club. Then came a 1-under 69 – aided by an eagle on the par-4 10th hole — on Saturday at Asheboro Municipal Golf Course.

He set the tone with six birdies on the back side in the first round.

Bass won the 2021 title after runner-up spots in 2018 and 2019.

Davidson shot three rounds of 71. Josh Spell was third at 214 (69, 71, 74). 

Andrew Routh was fourth at 216 (69, 71, 76), while David Elliott (70, 72, 77) and Stephen Spencer (71, 71, 77) tied for fifth at 219.

There were 83 golfers in the main draw. Another dozen competed in the super senior flight, which was won by Michael Thompson at 11-over 224 (72, 74, 78).
