The Frog Golf Club Tournament Results
The Amateur Players Tour – Atlanta dodged the weather forecast as was able to compete their event at The Frog Golf Club in Villa Rica, GA on Saturday April 16, 2022. Special thanks to the staff of The Frog Golf Club for the near perfect greens for our members and guest to play on. 36 players took the course to get their piece of the $1925 total is prizes handed out.
Division 1 was a tight battle all day long between three players. Derek Nicholson, Derek Foulke, and Jeremy Adams all entered the last hole tied for the lead. The par 5 18th hole is a risk reward finishing hole that lived up to the hype. Derek Nicholson took the risk, and the reward was a 15-foot eagle putt that he ended up two putting for birdie to card a 74 (+2). Derek Foulke narrowly missed a chip in to tie and Jeremy Adams missed a six-footer to give Derek Nicholson his third straight ATL win. Congrats to all three players.
Division 2 was won by James Davis who carded a 78 (+6) to take the victory over Marc Dean by four shots. James was in control for most of the day, however three double bogeys on the back nine made things interesting between the two. James was awarded the trophy and a $210 Visa Gift Card for his victory.
Division 3 also come down to the last hole as the lead was held by two players. Stephen Noland and Geoffrey Robbins stood on the 18th tee with a chance to win.

Stephen was awarded the trophy and the $190 Visa Gift Card. Geoffrey took home second place and a $50 Visa Gift Card.
There where fireworks in Division 4 and 18 holes was not enough to decide the champion. Greg Calvin and Andy Maestas both carded 91’s to make the playoff.
