Greenville, SC – At the completion of the 84th SCGA Amateur Championship, Keenan Huskey is the 2015 Champion after mastering the difficult Robert Trent Jones, Chanticleer layout of Greenville Country Club. Local resident and Greenville Country Club member Lee Palms could only watch as he comfortably wrapped up second place honors with a respectable ten under par 278. It was a record tying four days by Huskey. Only one other time had an SCGA Amateur Champion shot 19 under par 269. That Champion was Lucas Glover in 1999 at the Country Club of Charleston when he claimed his second of three consecutive titles. However, Glover defeated future teammate Jonathan Byrd by one shot. Huskey dominated the field and the golf course all week. “I played really good golf. I hit fairways and I was hitting it close on greens. I think I only had one or two putts of 45 feet or more all week,” Huskey commented on his performance. When asked how he felt about the win, “It means a lot. A lot of good players have won this … Continue reading

Due to unplayable course conditions, the 83rd edition of the SCGA Amateur Championship has been reduced to a 54 hole event and Andrew Novak has been declared the 2014 Champion.

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
