Jon Weiss Claims the 42nd SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship Title
ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC (Oct. 9, 2022) – Final round results of the 42nd SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship hosted by Dataw Island Club in St. Helena Island, SC on Sunday, October 9, 2022.
Jon Weiss of Florence made birdie on number 18 in a one-hole playoff to take home the 42nd SCGA Mid-Amateur Championship title. He had two birdies, an eagle, and a hole-in-one during the final round and finished the tournament at six-under par 210 overall.
“I had ten feet for eagle on #1 and made it,” said Weiss. “I played a couple holes and had the best hole-in-one of my life on #5 which was amazing. It was a little bit of a rollercoaster coming in and I was lucky enough to make my putt on 18 to get in the playoff. It feels so good to win the Mid-Am. This is something I’ve dreamt of doing for a long time and it’s an incredible feeling.”
Chandler Mulkey of Johns Island finished the tournament at 6-under par 210 overall to finish second.
Matt Oquinn of Beaufort finished in third, posting an overall tournament score of five-under par 211.
