Past, Present Gamecocks Fare Well at South Carolina Amateur
Aug. 10, 2009
BLUFFTON, S.C. - Former Gamecock Mark Anderson ran away with the South Carolina Amateur Championship over the weekend, winning by six strokes at Berkeley Hall Plantation on Sunday. He led a pack of several current and former Gamecocks that made the cut in the South Carolina Golf Association event.
Anderson turned in rounds of 71-64-67-70=272 (-16) to finish six shots clear of his nearest competitor. That happened to be former Gamecock golfer and head coach Steve Liebler, who tied for second place at 278 (-10). Rising seniors Patrick Rada and George Bryan IV were tied for fifth place at 282 (-6), and sophomore Wesley Bryan tied for 12th place at 286 (-2).
Anderson, Woodbury, Rada and Wesley Bryan will all now turn their attention to the U.S. Amateur Championship, which begins Aug. 24 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.
