SEABROOK, S.C. (June 8, 2014) -- Winthrop's Bradley Kauffmann knocked off Brian Langley 7 and 5 Sunday to win the 2014 South Carolina Match Play at Seabrook Island Club.

Kauffmann, a rising sophomore at Winthrop, didn't lose a hole and won five holes consecutively to put the match away early.

“I didn’t hit driver the rest of the week, just more worried about hitting fairways than hitting it a long way. It was all about the gameplan," Kauffmann said to the Carolinas Golf Association.

Langley was trying to go from stroke play medalist to champion for the first time since Todd White pulled the double in 2010. Langley, who will be turning pro at the end of the year, just said he ran out of steam at the end. “I had grinded all week in my matches and got three-down today and just couldn’t recover.”
