GREENWICH, Conn. - David Nocar was seemingly on his way to an early exit after falling 3-down through six holes of his third-round match in the 22nd U.S. Mid-Amateur championship at The Stanwich Club yesterday. But Nocar hung in until Terrence Miskell of New Braunfels, Texas, birdied the 17th hole to finally put him away, 3 and 1. For Nocar, from Severna Park and Chartwell Country Club, the key was the 14th and 15th holes after he'd cut the margin to one hole. At the par-5 14th, Nocar hit a 300-yard drive over trees, leaving himself about 165 yards across a water hazard to an elevated green.
