Prestigious Win For Tide Golfer
Thus is was something of a surprise -- a very pleasant surprise -- when Alabama golfer Trey Mullinax captured the prestigious Northern Amateur Championship at the Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton, Ind.
Mullinax entered the final round tied for 25th before shooting a 63, which set the course record on the Marsh Creek layout and also clinched the victory. The win was setup with seven birdies on the front nine, including four in a row to open his round.
He chipped in for birdie on the eighth hole before carding three more birdies on the back nine. The lone blemish on his round was a bogey on the 14th hole.
Mullinax, a native of Birmingham, begins his junior season at The Capstone this fall. He boasts a career scoring average of 74.67 in 11 career starts. He has three career rounds in the 60s for the Crimson Tide and one top-10 finish.
