Clanton, Moore named CGA players of the year

Cydney Clanton of Concord and Charlotte's Patty Moore have been honored as the best female amateur golfers in the Carolinas in 2009.

The Richard Tufts awards are based on Carolinas Golf Association rankings at the end of the year.

Clanton, a junior at Auburn, was named Carolinas women's player of the year. She was runner-up in the Women's North & South Amateur, reached the quarterfinals of the U.S Women's Amateur Public Links Championship and reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship.

Moore was named Carolinas senior women's player of the year for the sixth straight year, the longest streak in the history of the Tufts awards. Moore, 59, had one victory in 2009 and didn't finish lower than third in any event that included ranking points.

Mark Anderson of Beaufort, S.C., winner of the South Carolina Amateur, was the men's player of the year while Raleigh's Paul Simson was named senior player of the year for the fourth straight year.
