Entering the day with a one-shot lead, Rowan Sullivan of Charleston needed to play a consistent final round for a chance to claim the SCGA Junior Championship title. Despite battling through adversity and triumph through his final round, Sullivan was able to capture the Charles Rountree Junior Championship trophy after a final round score of one-under-par 70 and a tournament total of three-under-par 210.
“After my birdie on one I was thinking, we have 17 holes to go,” Sullivan said. “Two-shots is not enough when I am this nervous and I was nervous all day.”
After birdies on hole one and three, Sullivan found adversity when he was notified of a two-stroke penalty placed on him on his fourth hole. The penalty forced Sullivan from a comfortable four-shot lead to a one-shot lead. Following the penalty, Sullivan would still finish his front nine at one-over-par on the round. He would then proceed to shoot a two-under-par 33 on the back nine to become the champion.
“I persevered and I am proud of myself,” Sullivan says. “Turning the back nine I said to myself, prove to everyone who you can be and who you are. I wanted to see myself win one and this is going to be huge for my confidence.”
Luke Sullivan finished the day one-shot behind to take second place. For the final round, Sullivan shot one-under-par 70. Overall, he carded two-under-par 211 for the championship.
Zach Phillips of Inman fought to grab a spot on the leaderboard posting one-under 70 for the final round to claim third place.
The top eight finishers qualified for the 46th annual Georgia-South Carolina Junior Team Matches. Those players include champion, Rowan Sullivan, Luke Sullivan, Zach Phillips, Major Lenning, Drew Harrill, Adam Hunt, David Oliver IV and Jerry Bruns. The matches will be played July 24-25 at Greenville Country Club (Riverside).
