Have yourself a day, Matthew Sharpstene.
A 6-under 64 from the rising junior bound for Charlotte from West Virginia wasn’t just enough to lead the 120th North & South Amateur at Pinehurst after the first round of stroke play, it also set the record on the redesigned No. 4 course.
Sharpstene bested the previous mark of 65 — set by Brandon Wu and Karl Vilips at last year’s U.S. Amateur — thanks to eight birdies, including a trio on Nos. 14-16.
