    SHALLOTTE — West Brunswick Coach Joe Noble said after his team’s win May 10 that if the Trojans’ batting synced up with their defense and pitching, they’d hurt some other team’s feelings in the 3A playoffs.

    That team wound up being the South Johnston Trojans in a game that ended in the middle of the fifth inning with West Brunswick winning 13-0 on an overcast Friday night, May 12.

    The Wells Fargo Championship was contested last week at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington. I have been to and played many championship golf courses, including Augusta National, and Eagle Point ranks among the top three courses I have been to.

    The players were raving about the layout and the conditions all week. Phil Mickelson said, “it ranks in the top five courses” they will play all year. Coming from Mickelson, this holds a tremendous amount of value to me.
