ST. LOUIS, MO (August 2, 2014) — When asked at the start of the final round of the 24th Metropolitan Amateur Championship, Teddy Jones said, “I was just thinking I had to go out and make some birdies and see what happened.”
Well, what happened was he roared to the top of the leaderboard after a final round 4-under 67 to complete 54-holes at 1-under.
Jones started the day 6 shots back of the leader, John Anderson. A fast start to the day, Jones got to 5-under after Hole 10 and 2-under for the championship. Jones would bogey the 13th and 16th holes on the inward 9, but a birdie on 18 would post a 1-under total with the last 5 groups on the course.
