Oxford, MS – The Ole Miss golf course was the site for the Golfweek Amateur Tour of Memphis N/MS tournament this past Saturday.  Course was in great shape, and all the players (except the tour directors group) avoided getting wet.  Otherwise, it was a very comfortable day to play some golf on a very nice golf course.  Thanks to Tate, Gerald, and the entire staff at Ole Miss for a perfect tournament set up.  And I would personally like to thank all the players for their understanding so that I could play Saturday.   


Champ Flight- Cristian Serrano shoots 79 to beat out Sean Browns (S.LA Tour) 83 for first place. 


A' Flight- New member Jimmy Wolf and Tommy Warren came in tied at 80 after 18 holes and went to an on course playoff where Jimmy wins on first hole.  Tommy takes second, and Russell Cook grabbed 3rd with and 82. Thanks Russell for all your help at the tournament!


B' Flight- Tim Western wins his first tourney of the season with an 80! Congrats Tim! New member Ben Coles and tour vet Mike Bertoldo tied at 81 with Ben winning on scorecard playoff.


C' Flight- In the most competitive flight on the tour, George Powell wins his first tournament on tour with an 89.  Way to go George! Bill Barker shoots a 90 for 2nd place.  Third place went to a scorecard playoff between Danny McDougal, Mike Ballard, and Bart Watkins with Mike coming out on top. All three players carded 91 respectively.  Thank you Andy Darrow for your help on Saturday.


D' Flight- Vince Vaghela wins again! Second place went to Authur Miller, with Kendrick Hickman grabbing 3rd place.
