  TIm Garrett wins 2007 County Am Title!
Tournament Director Robbie Gravley presents 2007 Champion Tim Garrett with the Leon Gravley Memorial Cup

Fox Run member goes wire to wire for 2nd County Am championship

Tim Garrett capped off a front running weekend on Sunday with a closing 71 to win the 40th Greenville County Amateur at Greer Country Club. Garrett, who won the 2005 title at Fox Run, led from start to finish. He opened Friday with a brilliant 64, just one shot off the tournament and course record set by Brent Delahousaye in 2001. Delahousaye shot a 63 in the first round in route to winning the last time the tournament was at Greer.

And although there were some tense moments on th back side, Garrett was never visibly shaken. Even after making double bogey on the testy 14th hole, he bounced right back with a two putt birdie at 15. Then after getting by the tough tee shot at 16 and making par, he iced the win with a birdie 2 on the challenging 17th hole, rolling in a 14 foot putt. In addition to holding off his own foursome of Trey Bridwell, Greenville County Cyder Cup Captain Doug Brown, and Benji McGaha, Garrett also had to ward off charges from Adam Black, a rising junior at Travelers Rest High Scool, and Greer member Marty Henson. Black followed his first two rounds of 71-70 with a Sunday 67. His score posted at -8 was briefly only one shot behind Garrett before the birdie at 15. Henson took the lead in the clubhouse after his 67 put him at -7. Black & Henson finished 2nd & 3rd, respectively. Bridwell, who will attend Coker College this fall on a golf scholarship was a sentimental choice from many of the Greer members. His sister Jennifer holds the ladies course record at Greer, while brohter in law Ryan Lucas is the current Head Pro at Greer. Bridwell & Benji McGaha tied for 4th at -6. McGaha was the tournament medalist on Saturday with a 67. Sunday's best score came from Tommy Ashworth with a 65. With that score, Ashworth went from 63rd to 14th place. Also of note, Bobby Hines won the Dillard Traynham First Flight while Asworth won the Michael Christie Second Flight. In all the top 25 players in the Billy Hong Championship Flight won gift certificates, while the top 5 won in the Traynham & Christie Flights.

After the tournament, the Grady Allison Cup was awarded to Summersett Golf Club for winning the team title on Saturday, and Tommy Gaul was officially inducted into the Greenville County Golf Hall of Fame.

After Day 2 Article
Tim Garrett followed up his spectacular 64 on Firday with a solid 70 on Saturday to maintain control of the 40th Greenville County Amateur heding into the final round. Starting on #10, Garrett, from Simpsonville, quickly found things not as easy, making a bogey 5. But leaving the 15th hole he had moved to -2 for the day. A bogey at 18 left him at 35. Another 35 on the front gave him a 70 and a ten under par total and a 3 shot lead over Trey Bridwell & Doug Brown, both of Greer. Bridwell, who won last month's Greater Greer Open, fired a 4 under par 68 to go with his opening 69. Brown had a roller coaster round, following up a back nine 39 with a determined 32 for a 71 to go with a 66 on Friday. A shot further back is Benji McGaha at 138, McGaha followed his first round 71 with the day's best score, a five under par 67, while Jamie Burns slipped from 66 to 73, but still holds 5th place at -5. The final foursome tees it up at 11:30 on Sunday.

In the Grady Allison Cup Team Competition, Summersett becomes the first ever club to win back to back titles as they edged host Greer Country Club by three shots. This is also the 3rd time overall that Summersett has claimed the Coutnty Team Title. The Allison Cup is named after Grady Allison, who was a Greenville County tournament official for over 30 years through 2004 and now resides near Chattanooga, Tennessee.
