Former Wando High School golfer Christian Sease, now at home in Greenville, was six strokes back and won the 41st South Carolina Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship on October 3 at the Green Valley Country Club in Greenville.
Sease, who played collegially at Winthrop, scored a final round of 8 under par 64 and finished the tournament with a 54 hole total of 15 under 201. He finished one shot ahead of fellow Greenville fellow Jeremy Revis and two better than Walt Todd Jr ., also from Greenville.
Sease, who won the Carolinas Amateur at the Country Club of Charleston in 2016, made it to the quarterfinals of this year’s US Mid-Amateur.
“The game plan was to do the same and just give me a number of birdie opportunities, and especially hit it well with my irons, and I putted really well,” said Sase. It’s been a great week for me and I’m just blessed to finally get one of these trophies ”.
