Novak Takes Two Shot Lead Into Final Round

After a tumultuous third round of the 83rd SCGA Amateur Championship at The Reserve Golf Club of Pawleys Island, Andrew Novak continues to lead by two strokes. Two weather delays, including heavy rains and significant lightning, kept the field off the course for nearly four hours. A saturated course also forced SCGA Tournament Officials to make the course play as a par 71, changing the short par-four sixteenth hole into a 135 yard par-three. Undeterred by the delays and conditions many players came out swinging including the thirty-six hole leader. Novak, chipped in three times, on holes three, four and six, making two birdies and saving par. He also ran in a putt from off the fringe on the par-5 13th hole for eagle. There were four bogies on the scorecard though, leaving Novak with a third round score of one under par, 70 and a three day total tournament lead of eight under, 207. Two other players that had spectators abuzz included Jon Weiss of Florence and Jonathan Hardee of Greer. Weiss, who plays collegiately for James Madison University, … Continue reading

Young Comes From Behind For Victory

With a final round score of 66 and a four day total of twelve under par 272, Carson Young is the SCGA’s 82nd Amateur Champion. Starting the day seven shots behind third round leader Ben Fogler, the incoming Clemson University freshman made his statement early in the round by making birdie on three of the first four holes. The 18 year old managed to complete his front nine with no bogies and the rest pars to turn at 32. Fogler, who had managed to hold at least a share of the lead throughout the entire tournament, was not to be outdone, making birdies on holes 4 & 6 to maintain a significant lead. Fogler made his first slip of the day on the converted par four 9th hole, making bogey. The tide turned when the groups made their way to the backside. On the 10th hole, Young made birdie to get within four shots of the lead. While Fogler recorded pars on holes 10, 11, and 12, he stumbled on the par four 13th, making double bogey. Playing one group … Continue reading

Ben Fogler continued his dominant play at the SCGA Amateur Championship with a third round score of four under par 67 and a three day total of 199 at The Members Club at Woodcreek. The Woodcreek member holds a five shot lead over Bryce Howell heading into the final round of the Championship and shows no signs of backing down. Fogler wasted no time showing the rest of the field that he was serious about holding his tournament lead after making birdie on three of the first six holes played. Two of those birdies came on two of the hardest par fours on the course, holes 2 and 4. His lone bogey of the day came on the 474 yard par four 9th hole to make the turn at two under par. Not to be denied however, the 20 year old Elgin resident came right back with a birdie on the 10th hole to move to three under par. One final birdie on the par five 17th and a par on the final hole gave Fogler his five shot cushion … Continue reading
