ATLANTA, GA (July 4, 2009)--Brian Harman shot a final-round 66 Saturday at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta to win the Dogwood Invitational and help his candidacy for the Walker Cup.

Harman (66) finished at 18-under 270, four shots ahead of former Georgia teammate Russell Henley (67). Adam Mitchell (71), who like Harman finished his eligibility at Georgia earlier this year, finished third at 12 under.

After opening with a 1-over 73, Harman was 19 under par in his final three rounds. He closed with rounds of 67-64-66.

It was Harman’s first major amateur victory since the 2007 Porter Cup. Harman, a member of the ‘05 U.S. Walker Cup team, has remained amateur this summer to try to make this year’s team. Mitchell, the ‘08 Porter Cup champ and a semifinalist at last year’s U.S. Amateur, has also said he has his eyes set on this year’s team.

ABOUT THE Dogwood Invitational

Tournament week is June 3-8 at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia. The entry fee is $350.00 US and includes breakfast and lunch tournament days as well as special events.

The history of this prestigious event extends back to 1941, when legendary amateur Tommy Barnes captured his first of five Dogwood titles. Evolving with the times, the modern Dogwood has produced fine champions like Webb Simpson (’07), Brian Harman (’09), Dawson Armstrong (’15), Charles Huntzinger (’16) and in 2018 Ashton Poole. This evolution can be seen also in our course renovations and set-up, our relaxed tournament atmosphere, and our spirit of social responsibility.
