Josh O'Neal wins county amateur championship for 2nd time...



Fired a final round 66 to get the victory

Josh O'Neal fired a 6-under par 66 to win the 47th Annual Purple Power Greenville County Amateur Sunday at the Furman University Golf Course. With the win, O'Neal joins an elite group of Greenville County golfers that have won the championship more than once. He joins Tommy Gaul, Frankie Impson, Billy Hong, Chris Patton, Trey Bridwell, Tim Garrett, and this year's 3rd place finisher Bobby Hines as players winning twice. Hines won in 1996 & 1998. Bill Lovett won the event 3 times, while also competing this year was four time champion Mike Gravley, who finished 16th in the 141 man field. O"Neal won in 2012 at Bonnie Brae, but it may be a while before he has a chance at a third title, as he has plans to turn professional in the next few weeks.
 
Starting much earlier than the guys near the lead on Sunday because of his three over 75 on Friday, O'Neal quietly posted a sizzling 66, then had to sit under the Pavilion scoreboard area and wait it out. The perceived leaders were teeing off on #15 when O'Neal's 66 was posted, but it didn't take long for word to reach back out to the course that they were not only competing with each other, but a 3 under total had been posted. Zach Bishop and Hayden Garrett had come through 13 at two under and Hines at two over. Bishop fell off late with some putting misses, while Hines holed out from the fairway for an eagle at 15. Garrett also got a birdie at 15 to tie O'Neal at three under. But a bogey on the next hole and an 18th hole narrow miss on a long putt for a birdie gave O'Neal the championship. Garrett finshed in 2nd while Hines got third place alongside Bishop at even par 144.

Fox Run Country Club repeated as the winner of the Allison Cup team competition. The three lowest scores from member clubs are counted each day. Furman & Green Valley got 2nd & 3rd in the team competition.

Flight winners were as follows Dillard Traynham 1st Flight - Michael Polger, Cathead Stroud 2nd Flight - Joseph Fuller, and Michael Christie 3rd Flight - Brad Hawkins.  Complete scores can be seen by clicking the link below!

NOTE- this year was the 1st time since 1994 that the championship was decided by 36 holes. The tournament went to a three day format in 1995 at Pebble Creek when Gravley won the last of his four titles. The complete 18 hole washout was the first time since 1977 when the final round at Paris Mountain Golf Club (now Summersett) was rained out. The golfers would return the next Sunday to play the final round as Lovett would win his first County Championship.
 
Thanks to everyone who participated, and to Furman University Golf Course for being such great hosts. A special thanks to Purple Power for being such a great presenting sponsor of the Greenville County Amateur!
