After shooting even par rounds of 72 on Saturday, Peyton Mitchell, Brad Porter and Trey Howard knew that it would probably take a round of “below par” golf on Sunday to win the 2023 Jackson Parish Golf Course Club Championship.
They were right. And even then things weren’t decided.
With all three tied at one-under par heading into hole #17, Mitchell went one up with a birdie, only to see Porter tie the score at two under. The pair of final round 70’s set up a sudden death playoff where after both parred the first two holes, Mitchell rammed home a birdie on the third hole to win it.
Zack Duck won the first flight in a playoff with Justin Morris after both finished the two day, 36 hole tourney with a score of 161, one ahead of third place finisher Mike Simonelli.
In Senior Division play , Dwayne “Snook” Harrell parlayed his opening round one under par score of 71 into a winning 145 total. Leigh Cathey came in second with a 148 while Craig Mitchell was one back at 149 for third.
Justin Sharp won the four man Super Senior Division with a 153 score after taking a commanding lead with a first day even par round of 72, which was seven strokes better than Danny Sullivan and eight fewer than Rick Hickmon.
