ATLANTA, Georgia (July 4, 2015) -- A day lost to rain did nothing to deter 36-hole leader Dawson Armstrong, who posted 66 today to capture the Dogwood Invitational at Druid Hills Golf Club.
After Friday's round was rained out, the Lipscomb University golfer bogeyed his opening hole, but birdied holes 7-9 to post 2-under on the front. He added four more on the back to shoot 66 and win by two at 16-under.
“This was a great experience for me," Armstrong tod the tournament committee after the round. "Five days ago I was not thinking I would be standing here as champion of The Dogwood Invitational – and here I am!”
Ashton Van Horne, who seemed to be running away with the tournament Thursday -- when he got to 13-under after 27 holes -- finished with a solid round of 67 to take solo second at 14-under. Van Horne's final round run was derailed by a double-bogey at the 16th.
A shot back were Oklahoma commit Brad Dalke, and South Africa’s top ranked junior, Paul Boshoff, who posted the lowest round on Saturday with a 65.
