Kentucky Open: Brown wins, Newcomb, Sharp-Low Ams

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Aug 4, 2011) --The Kentucky Open title is one that has been held by some of the greatest golfers in history and the way the 2011 champion played today and during the past season, Brandon Brown may be added to that same list. Brown's final total of 203, 13- under par, included seven birdies and two bogeys. Brown, who was also low professional at the 2010 PowerBilt Kentucky Open, adds another $10,000 check for his efforts this year.

Blake Watts, the first round leader and new course record holder, fired another seven under par 65 to keep the contest close until Brown's birdie and Watt's bogey on hole #17 turned the tide for the eventual winner. Watts collected the runner-up professional check of $6000 for his effort.

The hottest amateur player in the state, Patrick Newcomb, joined another KGA State Amateur champion Tyler Sharpe as low amateur. Their score of 1 under par, 215, placed them tied for sixth overall.
