Wiggins wins Statesville, moves up

The story in the NC Series after event four in Statesville was David Wiggins, Jr. The 16 year old phenom held off a field that included the two highest rated players in NC (Cam Todd and Michael Johansen) and current series leader Terry Gallops. Despite Johansen shooting a 1091 round and Todd shooting a 1069 final round, Wiggins, Jr.'s consistent play (no rounds worse than 1023) led him to his first series win of the year. This win jumped him into a tie for third with Brian Schweberger and only 2 points behind Jeremy Koling for second. Gallops perfect attendance and great play still leads and is 79 points ahead of Koling.

In the Masters division, the Jeff Baldwin show continued winning his second series event of the year. Baldwin entered the final round in third place but a solid final round gave him the win just barely getting by Chris Lee and Brian McRee. Baldwin now leads Lee by 57 points and has 99 points on McRee, whose third place finish moved him up into third place in the series.

The advanced division had an entire field of new competitors thus, no changes at the top. However Harrison's Lerario's victory and 50 points puts him in 4th place just 20 points behind leader Kurt Hodnett. As more events occur throughout the year, this division may be the closest of them all as 43 people are within 50 points of the lead.

In intermediate, series leader Ryan Kastle was in attendance, just in the advanced division. Robet Randleman put up 4 solid rounds to take the 50 points and put himself in 5th place in the series. David McClelland's seventh place finish in the event moved him from 57th all the way to 18th for the biggest move!

The 5th event of the series could be the biggest of year as we stay in the West for the Carolina Clash.
