HATTIESBURG, Miss. (April 28, 2013) -- The forecast for unfavorable weather came to fruition Sunday morning as the Senior Divisions began play at 7:30. Despite the efforts of the tournament committee, the morning wave was brought off the course around 7:45am and was not able to return to the course. The Senior and Super Senior Divisions were shortened to a 36 hole championship and the trophies were awarded accordingly.
Mike Thompson and David Griffin, both of Tupelo, successfully defended their title in the Bill Cass Senior firing a 5 under, 134. In the Bill Cass Super Senior there was a tie for the championship, given to Les Robinson and JT Jernigan and George Hinman and Chris Wilson.
Thankfully, the weather cooperated for the afternoon so that the regular division was able to complete nine holes of play. Justin Elliott and Steve Wilson sneaked into the lead with their six under for the 9 hole round today. Elliott defended his title from the past year, although with a new partner.
Chosing a partner can be difficult and Elliott went straight for the top in his four-ball team of Defending Champion and US Mid Amateur Champion.Many thanks to the staff at Canebrake for the hosting this prestigious event. The course was in terrific condition and we thank the staff for creating a championship atmosphere for these amateurs.
