Southeastern Amateur: Hunter Logan hangs on in final round to win
It didn't come easy, but Hunter Logan
of Steens, Miss., was able to hold off the field and win the 94th Southeastern Amateur
at the Country Club of Columbus in Columbus, Ga., by one shot.
The Mississippi State golfer entered the final round with a three-shot lead over Tucker Allen
of Tolar, Tex. Logan was red hot over the first two days, shooting 6-under 64 in the first round and 8-under 62 in the second round.
However, Logan shot a 3-over 73 in the final round to come back to the field and give the top five a chance.
of Dothan, Ala., and Troy University finished in second place at 10-under after shooting rounds of 66-66-68.
Scott was in the group ahead of the final group with Allen and Logan and bogeyed No. 18 to fall into a tie at 10-under with Logan before Logan birdied No. 18 to win the tournament.
Logan bogeyed No. 16 and 17 to make the birdie a must on No. 18.
Allen looked like he was going to make some noise after shooting a 2-under 34 to get to 13-under on the front nine, but four bogeys and no birdies on the back nine put him all the way back down to 9-under.
of Greensville, S.C., could not make a move on the leaders, as he finished his final round with an even-par 70 and 9-under total to tie Allen in third place.
Earlier this summer, Logan won the Dogwood Invitational
by five shots after finishing 20-under.
