61st SCGA Senior Championship
Callawassie Island Club – Dogwood/Magnolia
Callawassie Island, SC
May 13-15, 2019
Kevin King of Bluffton shot a final round score of two over par 74 to capture his first SCGA Senior Championship victory with a three day total of one under par 215 at the Callawassie Island Club in Callawassie Island, SC.
King began his day with a four shot lead, but with a plethora of some the best senior amateur golfers in the
State of South Carolina, he knew that he had to play great golf to capture a victory. As the wind whipped around much of Callawassie Island throughout the day, King stayed steady on the Dogwood (front) course with seven pars on the first seven holes, adding a birdie on the Par 3 – 168-yard eighth hole, and finishing the ninth hole with a bogey. Heading to the Magnolia (back) nine, King’s lead was at a 5 shot advantage. With a combination of four pars, two birdies, two bogeys, and a triple bogey on the extremely tough Par 4 – 384-yard 18th Hole, King was able to fend off the 2018 SCGA Senior Champion, Rich Weston of Pawleys Island, by one stroke to claim the 2019 SCGA Senior Championship.
Finishing in solo third place was Taylors native Duff Wagner who finished with a three-day total of 221. Eddie Hargett (Blythewood) finished in fourth place after completing his final round with a score of 75 and a tournament total of 222. Full Results
