Wolfes Defends Georgia Junior Title

COLUMBUS, GA (June 23, 2010)--Defending champion Scott Wolfes of St. Simons Island birdied 18 to break a tie with Davin White of Locust Grove and win his second-straight Georgia Junior Championship title. The 45th annual Championship took place at Green Island Country Club, June 21-23.

White, playing one group ahead of Wolfes, started the day in a tie for fifth place but turned in a final-round 68 to move into a tie for the lead. White needed some heroics of his own on 18, as he missed the green far right but hit his chip shot to one foot to save par and remain at 4-under-par 209 for the Championship.

Wolfes, who entered the final round tied for first at 4-under-par, hit his approach on the final hole to 10 feet, then sank the putt for birdie and to finish the Championship at 5-under-par 208.

Three players tied for third at even-par 213 – second-round co-leader Austin Vick of Evans, Caleb Morris of Metter and Jack Gibbs of Evans, who carded the low round of the day (67). Jimmy Beck of Columbus and Joe Lewis of Savannah tied for sixth at 214, while Matthew Beringer of Macon placed eighth with a 215.

The top eight finishers qualified to represent the state in the 35th annual Georgia-South Carolina Junior Challenge Match, which takes place July 16-17 at Atlanta Country Club in Marietta.

Michael Garretson of Acworth and Sanders Park of Alpharetta, two of four competitors who tied for 10th, finished as first and second alternate, respectively, after a four-hole playoff for the Challenge Match Team. Also finishing 10th were Andy Shim of Lawrenceville and Henry Mabbett Jr. of Griffin.

The field of 144 was cut to the low 70 and ties for Wednesday’s final round, with the cutline falling at 12-over 154 and 72 players advancing.

Entries were open to male amateur golfers between the ages of 14-17 as of June 21, who are Georgia residents and GSGA members or dependants of GSGA members.
