70th State Junior Championship Azalea City Golf Course Mobile AL July 28 30 2015 William Buhl of Fairhope ended up winning the 70th State Junior Championship at Azalea City Golf Course in Mobile after rounds of 69 67 72 208 eightunder par by four shots from Todd DeZoort and Alex Green but for most of the final round the margin was a lot closer Tuscaloosa s Jake DeZoort was tied with Buhl 18 with three holes to go but his second shot flew 20 yards over the green on No 16 leading to a double bogey against Buhl s birdie and the margin was now three Defending champion Alex Green of Point Clear would move into a tie for second after DeZoort made bogey on the final hole Buhl will be a freshman on the golf team at the University of Arkansas next year and has won the State High School 3 A Individual Championship the last two years playing for Bayside Academy He played in his first and last State Junior as he will age out next year The thing I learned the most today Thursday was patience Buhl said I found myself thinking ahead too many times and that put me in a hole on the front nine as I was pressing as I got off to a slow start It was certainly an up anddown contest between Buhl and DeZoort After a first hole bogey DeZoort was quickly three behind but he had reduced the deficit to just one through seven holes Buhl made his first birdie of the round on the tough ninth and was two ahead as they made the turn However his approach flew the green on No 10 resulting in a double bogey and a tie A two putt birdie on No 11 put Buhl back in front before an incredible turn of events on No 12 Buhl found tree trouble and was 25 yards short of the green in three on the par 4 12th Staring double bogey in the face he pitched in for an unlikely par DeZoort made birdie and they were tied again That chip in was the shot that kept me in it Anything could have happened there Buhl said DeZoort birdied the next hole to take the lead for the first time but he gave it right back with a bogey on No 14 Things changed again on No 15 as Buhl found the water with his second shot resulting in bogey and they were tied again Then came the turn of events on No 16 which put Buhl firmly in the drivers seat DeZoort will play golf for the University of Alabama in the fall of 2016 and recently participated in the U S Junior Amateur and qualified for match play before losing on the final hole in the Round of 64 felt like he barely missed a shot but it just wasn t to be I had 140 yards out of the rough into 16 and it flew the green by 20 yards with a gap wedge I couldn t believe that I was dead 36 William Buhl back there I really felt like I could have shut the door a few times but never made enough birdies Green who shot 64 in last year s final round at Gadsden CC to win the State Junior by two shots from Steven Setterstrom Jr started out strong with two birdies on the first two holes but couldn t get any closer and went three over par for holes 5 7 There was no coming back for him and only a late charge got him a tied for second This was the final junior tournament for Buhl and Green with Green set to start his college golf career at the University of Alabama next month but DeZoort 17 will get one more crack at it next year Andrew Graves of Mobile won the 14 15 age group with Jacob LeCroy of Anniston second Mac Scott of Birmingham won the 12 13 age group with Birmingham s Evans Gross second

15th State Match Play Championship Montgomery Country Club Montgomery AL August 5 8 2015 Patrick Martin has achieved a great deal in his relatively young golf career but he had yet to win an Alabama Golf Association State Championship He rectified that this year by claiming the 15th State Match Play Championship at Montgomery Country Club in a well contested match with Lee Hodges Martin will be an incoming freshman at Vanderbilt and this marked his last tournament of the summer before heading off to start his college career The morning of the final day saw him see off former Vanderbilt golfer Richard Douglas of Trussville in the semifinal going two extra holes to the 20th hole before edging Douglas In the other semifinal current UAB golfer Hodges of Elkmont took down Jake DeZoort 17 of Tuscaloosa who will be a freshman on the University of Alabama golf team in the fall of 2016 by a score of 2 up In the final after a brief break for lunch Martin was always ahead and staked himself to a 3 up lead through 13 holes over Hodges The match and championship looked to be his in a stroll but Hodges had other ideas rolling in birdie putts on Nos 14 and 17 to take the match to the final hole Both players hit the 18th green in regulation but Martin was close to 50 feet above the hole while Hodges had around 10 feet left for birdie Martin s putt gathered pace and ended up six feet below the cup Hodges could not hole his putt to force extra holes and Martin made his uphill come backer to claim the title Those the semifinal and final were two very good matches Martin who graduated from Spain Park High School in May said I had to play well in both Lots of good shots from all players were on display Martin who finished second in the State Amateur earlier this summer to two time champion Will Cannon had to dig deep to close Patrick Martin 42 out the win I ve learned a lot this summer and in this championship about staying in the moment with every shot I ve been wanting to win a golf tournament for a while and it was my week to do it He thanked his swing instructor Wayne Flint and his Dad Greg Martin for helping him work on his game The championship was a true test of endurance as Martin had to survive six matches over three days to lift the trophy

27th State Mid Amateur Championship Wynlakes Golf Country Club Montgomery AL September 18 20 2015 Jeff Taylor led wire to wire as he captured the 27th State Mid Amateur Championship at his home course Wynlakes Golf Country Club in Montgomery after rounds of 68 70 73 211 fiveunder par Freeman Fite of Anniston 70 73 71 and Shaw Pritchett of Montgomery 72 71 71 finished tied for second on 214 The last time Wynlakes hosted the Mid Amateur in 2010 Taylor was also in the thick of the action eventually losing in a playoff to Steve Hudson This year he went one better He started with an opening birdie after two towering shots to reach the par 5 in two and added another birdie on No 16 In between he had bogeys on holes 3 4 and 11 but managed to get the job done Former University of Alabama golfer Fite got as close as one through 13 holes but a bogey on 14 coupled with Taylor s birdie on 16 meant the eventual difference was three shots I know it sounds funny but I was struggling with my swing so much in the final round that I was more focused on that than the situation Taylor said Normally I hit a lot more drivers than I did but I was struggling with what is normally my go to club No matter as his 3 wood stood him in good stead as he made a lot of solid pars to consolidate his position and win the day I didn t know where I stood in the championship which is a good thing because I m a naturally nervous and anxious individuAL I said to myself if I could shoot level par in the final round I d be happy with that and if somebody Jeff Taylor 48 beat me they beat me I enjoy golf Compettion is fun but I don t want to do it all the time Playing at home is great for me My joy lies in my family his wife Emily and their two children Taylor played college golf for Wallace State Junior College from 1989 91 and Troy University the following two years Born and raised in Montgomery he now lives adjacent to the 15th green at Wynlakes He came into the championship riding the confidence of shooting a 65 last week with his usual group of buddies I was more nervous the first two days for some reason I just told myself whatever happens happens in the final round What happened is he is now a State champion Some redemption from last time here when he lost to Steve Hudson in a playoff for the 2010 State Mid Amateur

52nd Girls State Junior Championship Heron Lakes Country Club Mobile AL July 7 9 2015 At just 13 years old Michaela Morard of Huntsville is believed to be the youngest ever winner of Girls State Junior which she won at Heron Lakes Country Club in Mobile And this was the 52nd playing of this state championship Morard carded rounds of 7672 72 220 to edge Micheala Williams of Athens 74 75 72 221 She played up in the 14 15 age group so she was eligible to win the overall title along with girls in 16 18 Morard must like Mobile as she is the reigning State 6A 7A individual champion shooting sevenunder par at Magnolia Grove in Mobile as a seventh grader in May In a close contest Morard fell back after back to back double bogeys early in her round on Nos 2 and 3 I counted up how many holes were left 15 and told myself I needed to birdie four or more of them with no bogeys to get back in it Her math proved prophetic as she actually added five birdies in holes 4 6 11 12 and 15 against a lone bogey on No 13 to play her final 15 holes four under par and win by one She attends Huntsville Middle School and plays golf for Huntsville High School She plays golf at both Valley Hill and The Ledges both in Huntsville It means a lot to win as I m Michaela Morard only 13 and I think one of the only other people to win it under age 15 was Gabi Oubre of Mobile when she was 14 Morard entered the day with a one shot lead over Williams and that was her margin of victory They were paired together along with Spain Park High School s Jordan Susce who led after the first round and finished tied third with Grand Bay s Aleesha Smith After Morard s poor start Williams took the lead and matched birdies on Nos 5 and 17 against bogeys on 10 and 16 However Morard pegged her back and won by the slimmest of margins Williams who is from Athens finished second in the Girls State 61 Junior last year and third in 2013 as well as tied second individually in the 2015 6A 7A State High School Championship is second after a 74 75 149 Brooke Gober of Orange Beach won the 9 11 age group nine hole scores of 39 40 40 19 while Carolina MacVicar of Tuscaloosa won the 12 13 83 87 81 251 by one from Berry s Erika Allen 86 83 83 252

83rd Women s State Amateur Championship Gadsden Country Club Gadsden AL June 24 26 2015 Heather Nail defeated Kathy Hartwiger in the 18 hole final of the 83rd Women s State Amateur Championship at Gadsden Country Club by a score of 1 up In a closely contested match Nail led most of the way but a resilient Hartwiger took her all the way to the final green before coming up just short Nail 19 hails from Hartselle and just finished her sophomore year on the golf team at the University of Mobile She won four times this past year and was named Second Team All American in NAIA This is Nail s second state title having won the Women s State Four Ball Championship with Suzanne Stanley in 2012 In match played in searing temperatures on a beautifully conditioned course Hartwiger who has won this title a record breaking 10 times was trying to add to her legend She started with an opening birdie to go 1 up but it would prove to be her only lead of the day as Nail responded with a 20 foot putt for a birdie two on the next hole to square the match The next three holes were halved with pars before a Hartwiger three putt from the fringe allowed Nail to go 1 up through six holes She would never relinquish her lead Both players struggled to bogey fives on No 9 with Nail still 1 up Hartwiger struggled on the next hole as well conceding it to Nail who doubled her lead It would stay that way until an upand down for par on No 15 allowed Hartwiger to cut into Nail s lead but an errant Hartwiger second on 16 gave the 2 up advantage Heather Nail right back to Nail However the true champion that she is Hartwiger captured the 17th with a rock solid par But an errant tee shot far left on the closing hole followed by Nail s drive sailing right down the middle left Hartwiger literally with a very tough hill to climb So it was that Nail was able to three putt but still tied the hole and thus won the championship match 1 up I thought it was so key to keep the momentum going when I got ahead Nail said I was able to make some good putts and that s what mattered I really wanted to win this championship but knew I would face a tough match as Kathy is a great great champion I just felt all week that this course fit my eye I felt like I was able to figure out the greens well I m truly blessed to win this championship especially against someone who is the Jack Nicklaus of 71 Alabama golf She s the best ever Hartwiger 49 admitted that the heat and playing four matches in three days took its toll on her but would take nothing away from Nail s win Heather played a great match and was very consistent She gave me very few openings and when she did I wasn t sharp enough to take advantage I don t play and practice anywhere near as much as I used to and that s OK I have my experience to fall back on and whatever happens happens I still have an awesome family that loves me very much She did leave with a parting salvo though I m not done yet I still think I have one or two championships left in me I just the need some cooler temperatures

In Memoriam Jean Miller Jean Miller WAS women s golf in Alabama and had been such for many many years After a brave fight she passed away in June and will be dearly missed by golfers far and wide Especially all the little girls many of whom are mothers themselves now who she started in the game of golf Even later in life she continued to enthusiastically promote the game through the Ladies Birmingham Golf Association LPGA USGA Girls Golf the Lady Legacy Scholarship Foundation the AGA and other groups she had an integral role in She received many accolades along the way and I ll get to them in due course but she was far more interested in seeing a young girl s smile as she made solid contact with the ball or made contact at all as Miller knew then she had another golfer for the future in her midst When in 2012 the Alabama Golf Association recognized her with the Joe H King Award their highest award she told me It gives me so much pleasure to watch the little girls learn the game Beginners who start to advance and as my great friend Joann Bedow used to say you give them clues and their faces just light up when they hit one just right in the sweet spot Those smiles that happiness when they know they have done it right I just Jean Miller love those moments Miller a fine golfer in her own right spent a lifetime giving back to the game I take almost a selfish pleasure in helping she continued with a smile across her lips and a sparkle in her eye I have been fortunate that I do what I want to do and that is to help grow the game of golf I like being useful It s fun to help and that s the reason I do it Miller though it sounds simplistic always got things done and she was so integral to groups such as LPGA USGA Girls Golf that introduces the game to girls from ages 7 17 She also worked with the USGA for over 25 years She served on the Junior Girls Championship committee for 16 years and then their Women s Committee You name it she did it and always with no fuss or fanfare One of my favorites was when 81 she recalled an endearing story of traveling to the U S Girls Junior many times with many of girls invariably flying via Atlanta airport You could pick out the girls at the airport They were invariably tall and looked a little lonely One year 1994 I met Marcy Newton who was holding a teddy bear and had a tear in her eye Her parents were from rural South Carolina and she was traveling on her own for the first time I befriended her I saw her again the next year in the airport She d grown up a lot but still was a little unsure of herself Do you know what she won that year s championship Always with more energy and drive than most people half her age she will be truly missed but did she ever live her life What a joy it must have been for this humble self effacing lady to even have had an inkling of the lives

In Memoriam Jackie Cummings Born and raised in Tuscaloosa Jackie Cummings a true legend in the amateur game passed away in early August aged 80 Below is taken from a story about Cummings in Ian Thompson s book Alabama Golf Association The First 100 Years Ironically enough Cummings attended the University of Alabama but never hit a shot for the Crimson Tide s golf team I was what you d call a late bloomer Cummings said He s certainly got that right Winning the 1990 U S Senior Amateur Championship puts him in select company Cummings didn t touch a club until he was in high school even though his parents were members of the old Tuscaloosa Country Club A lot of my friends at Tuscaloosa now Central High School were skipping afternoon classes to go play golf I wanted to join them I was probably about a sophomore I never had any lessons I still haven t to to this day I just kind of picked it up along the way Next came college A lot of my good buddies were going to Alabama so I decided to join them I was a lousy junior player and didn t rate a tryout for a place on the golf team I still played and practiced but I never did try out Some of the players on the team at that time included M C Fitts Buddy Manderson and Jackie Maness Soon after college Cummings got married and didn t have a lot of time for golf His father helped Jackie Cummings him get into an International dealership selling and leasing large trucks As he became established in business he had more time to devote to golf As I said before I never took any lessons but I did read a lot Ben Hogan was my idol I learned so much from his book Five Fundamentals of Golf He became a fixture on the local golf scene winning his first tournament the Montgomery Country Club Invitational in 1958 I remember I beat Dick Pride in the final it was matchplay back then His son Dicky who plays on the PGA Tour is my godson Other wins followed the same year at Indian Hills and Selma Country Club where he has a span of 39 years between his first win and last win in 1997 He was now seen as one of the players to beat Cummings would win three State Amateur Championships his first coming in 1961 over the 83 West Course at The Country Club of Birmingham He would beat one of his Tuscaloosa rivals M C Fitts by one shot Rounds of 69 71 and 73 had Cummings comfortably in charge but he limped home with a final round of 80 which proved to be just enough to still win His other State Amateur wins came in 1965 at The Country Club of Mobile where rain meant the championship had to be called at 54 holes and at Vestavia Country Club in 1971 when two players who would go on to play on the tour Mike Smith and Charlie Krenkel came in tied second My biggest disappointment was not winning at Indian Hills still his home course in 1966 I had a five shot lead going into the final round but I shot 77 and Mac McLendon shot a 70 to beat me But over the years I ve won more than I ve lost He also finished second in the State Amateur to Craig Clemons in 1970 He noted that another disap

In Memoriam Jackie Cummings Continued pointment was never winning the prestigious Country Club of Birmingham National Invitational again he had two runner up finishes there He did win the Country Club of Mobile Invitational three times 1961 62 and 68 Cummings had a tremendous amount of success in the sixties but his game went into a decline by the mid seventies I was working hard plus I had back trouble I ruptured a disk in my back and had to have surgery This forced me to get into better shape as I was put on a physical training program and I did a lot of walking as well By the time I turned 50 I was in better shape than I was at age 40 Hence my golf game picked up too He was about to enter a new arena senior golf one that would show that his golf game never left but rather was one that improved with age At age 50 he was now eligible for the Senior Open but would have to wait another five years to be of age to try for the Senior Amateur In total Cummings played in seven Senior Opens making the cut in a very commendable four of them He had to qualify for four of them and was exempt from 1991 to 93 by virtue of his U S Senior Amateur win His best showing came in 1995 at Cherry Hills when he was the second lowest amateur just one behind Vinny Giles Now onto the crowning moment of his golfing career but it was one for which he nearly missed his qualifying tee time I ll let him take up the story once more That spring my game wasn t very good I d cracked a wrist and hadn t been playing very much I decided to go to Old Waverly in Mississippi to qualify I d been there before and thought I knew the way But come 20 minutes from my tee time I was completely lost and things didn t look good Finally a road looked familiar and I thought I d give it a shot It was the right road and two minutes before my tee time I pull into the parking lot I grab my clubs have my golf shoes in my hand and run to the first tee You know the U S G A doesn t mess around about those things If you re late you re out I made it just in time and with no practice swing I pushed my tee shot into a ditch and started with a big fat double bogey But a strange thing happened after that I never missed another shot and ended up shooting 70 to qualify by a shot So I headed to a place called Carefree Arizona and the Desert Forest Golf Club It was hot even though it was in October and the wind was blowing It was the hardest course ever for a Senior Amateur with the medalist shooting 150 I shot an 80 the first day but followed that up with a 74 and made it into matchplay with ease Things just kept getting better and better for me as the week went on He beat two time Senior Amateur champion Clarence Moore of Winnsboro S C in the quarter finals and Rick Jones of Youngstown Ohio in the semifinals to set up a clash with Bobby Clark of Asheville N C 84 It was and still is an 18 hole final and we both played poorly on the front nine after which we were even in the match I got my game together on the back nine and had seven pars and a birdie to win the match 3 2 Indeed he closed out the championship with the only birdie of the match a six footer on the par 5 sixteenth I felt I could be competitive in the national Senior Amateur as the year before Bob Lowry of Huntsville had lost in the semi final as had Amos Jones of Dothan another year I knew I could play with those guys You know it was just my week His win gave him a five year exemption into the championship and he made through into match play every year Twice he had good runs before losing quarterfinal matches but now laments the fact that he can t compete with the younger guys His record through the years stands alone in statewide circles Sam Perry and Sam Farlow may have won more State Amateurs four to Cummings three but no one in the state has likely won as many invitationals as Jackie Cummings When asked exactly how many he threw his hands up and said he had no idea but he did reel off the following list just for starters Tuscaloosa seven times Florence once Vestavia three times Selma three Mobile three etc etc He received the Joe H King Award in 2001 and was inducted into the Birmingham Golf Association s Hall of Fame in 2010
