Harman Boosts His Walker Cup Chances With a Win at the Dogwood

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 The Dogwood Invitational

The first Dogwood Invitational, held in April 1941, validated Druid Hills Golf Club as a challenging venue for amateur golf tournaments. The Club has hosted eight Georgia State Amateur Championships over the years, and the tournament continues as a staple on the major amateur golf circuit. The Dogwood was discontinued in 1973 and did not return until 1994 when a new tournament format was introduced. The new format included entrance into the tournament by invitation only and added an 18-hole qualifier for five to eight open spots prior to the tournament start. A Senior Division was added in 2005.Participation in The Dogwood Invitational is by invitation from the Dogwood Tournament Committee. The tournament is 72 holes of stroke play with a 54 hole cut to low 40 and ties for final round. Players are required to walk during tournament play and may carry their golf bag themselves or take a caddie. 8-spot Qualifier is held Monday of tournament week, prior to the event.
