ROME, Ga. ---- Jefferson Murray of Augusta carded a 1-under 69 for a two-day total of 136 and a one-stroke victory over Jeff Knox, also of Augusta, at the Georgia Mid-Amateur Championship, which took place at Coosa Country Club. Knox turned in the low score of the day, a 3-under 67, but it wasn't enough to overcome Murray's 2-under performance on the back nine, including birdies on 16 and 17, which secured the win.
First-round co-leader Chris Hall of Marietta tied for third at 2-under 138 (66-72) with Matt Robbins of Cumming (70-68). Atlanta's Jack Larkin and Marietta's Jeff Belk, both past GSGA champions, tied for fifth at 139 along with Mark Strickland of Woodstock and Rome's Marty Ellison. Ellison shared the first-round lead with Hall with an opening 66, but fell in the standings after a 73 on Sunday.
With par rounds of 70-70, Dave Womack of McDonough rounded out the top-10 with Greg Kennedy of Cumming, the 2000 Mid-Amateur Champion (69-71).
