SAVANNAH, GA – Trey Kent followed up a first-round of 3-under par 68 with a 2-over 73 on Sunday and won the 2015 Savannah City Amateur played on the fully restored Donald Ross Course at Bacon Park Golf Club.
Kent led by one stroke after the first round but trailed defending champion John Skeadas, II, by a stroke midway through the final round. But the 35-year-old birdied Nos. 10 and 11 and played the last three holes in Even-par to take home the victory at 1-under par for 36 holes. Skeadas, II, and his son, John Skeadas, III, tied for runner up at 2-over par.
Tripp Coggins finished fourth followed by Parker Stone, Jeff Cowart, Phillip Kennedy, Davy Clay, Peter Brennan, Ben Brennan and Walter Hagan. The only score under par in the final round belonged to Stone, a junior at Savannah Country Day who won the Savannah City Championship in the spring at Bacon Park.
Donald Consos, who was the head professional at Bacon Park until 1973, won the Senior Division with score of 74-75 to edge Bill McCloskey by two strokes. Flight winners included David Schaller in the Legends Divison, Keith Thomas in Men’s Net Division and David Davis in the Senior Net Division.
