Division 1 saw Birmingham chapter member Brandon Goude storm out to an early lead on the front side, however a shaky backside opened the door for tour newcomer Chase Romanstine who turned in a one over 37 on the back side to seal the victory and the $200 first place prize. Goude finished second to receive a $100 prize.
Division 2 was a tight battle all day between Birmingham’s Tom McMurdy and Memphis’ Tim Miller. In the end even a birdie by Miller on 18 wasn’t enough to top the steady play of McMurdy who carded a solid 83 for the victory and the $210 first place prize. Miller was rewarded with a second-place finish as well as a $120 prize for his efforts.
Division 3 was also a tight battle all day between three Birmingham members. Larry Kirkpatrick (84) took a two-shot lead into the back nine and was able to hold off both Phil Lambert (86) and Shane Parrott (86) for the win. Larry received a $200 prize for his efforts while Phil and Shane split second-place and each received $50 prizes.
In Division 4 Atlanta member Andy Maestas continued his hot streak of 3 wins in a row as he ran away and hid from the field with an impressive 86, for which he was rewarded with a $210 Visa gift card. Atlanta’s Ben Cook held on to second for the $120 Visa gift card.
In Division 5 eighteen holes wasn’t enough to decide a winner. Atlanta Co-Chapter owner Tim Harbin and Birmingham member Terry Hodge needed an extra hole to decide the grudge match that went back and forth all day. However, on the 19th hole Hodge was unable to match the par made by Harbin allowing him to secure the victory and the $180 Visa Gift Card. Hodge received a $60 prize for the day.
