    Competitors in the field for Monday’s Upstate Amateur Players Tour tournament at Kenmure County Club could not think of a better way to start the week. Throughout the beautiful day of competition, golfers vied for over $4,700 in side game cash and VISA gift card prizes. 

    Monday’s field was treated to Western North Carolina’s premier gated golf community located in Flat Rock. The Joe Lee designed course provides top-notch, high-country living for residents and guests.  

    Officially opened in 1982, the course offers a unique experience on each of its 18 holes. From breathtaking course views to the stunning beauty of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s no wonder that this private golf course is top rated. 

    The Upstate Amateur Players Tour travels the Upstate of South Carolina, and portions of North Carolina, offering golfers of all skill levels an opportunity to compete. With ten different divisions, including senior division as well, the tour has become a favorite of golfers throughout the area. 

    Here’s a breakdown from Monday’s tournament by each division: 

    Division 1 – BJ Humphries played his final 10 holes in two under par, proving to be the difference as his round of 68 earned him the top honors in Division 1 on Monday. Jackson Hill finished close behind with a round of 69, three under par.  

    Hill found his groove on the back nine, playing the first six holes in four under par to take the lead. Tyler Shuler shot 76 to finish third, followed by Nicholas Politis in fourth with a score of 77.  

    Shuler took advantage of both front-nine par fives during his round as Politis found success at the turn with birdies on the 10th and 12th holes. Brent Densmore rounded out the top-five with a round of 79. 

    Senior Division 1 – A string of eight straight pars on the front nine set the stage for San Constantino to win Senior Division 1 on Monday with a round of 81.

Blankenship had a steady day that featured eight pars as he carded a round of 82.
