Posted

Clay Guerin built a five-stroke lead and made it stand, winning the 50th Annual Travis Hudson/Bernard Weinstein Invitational in a runaway at Musgrove Country Club.

Guerin fired a four-under 67 on Sunday for a 199 total (69-63-67). Guerin was one of three golfers that shot in the 60s each day.

Oneonta’s Cody O’Toole opened the day in a second-place tie and finished alone as the runner up after shooting a 67 for a three-day total of 204. Falkville’s Eli Marty placed third at 205 with Starkville’s Ben Follett (207), Birmingham’s Claude Cooper (208) and Birmingham’s Tommy Jean (208) rounding out the top five.

Guerin, who finished eighth in last year’s tournament, was in second place after the first round, but took control thanks to an 8-under 63 on Saturday.

Last year’s winner Garrett Johnson — who also finished with a 199 final — tied for seventh with Jasper native Steve Hudson. Both golfers shot 210. Each of the top nine golfers shot in the 60s on Sunday.

Jasper’s Dustin Sanders was the top local golfer, finishing with a 214 total. Cordova’s Brent Borden finished at 217.

In other flights, Morris’ Chase Kennedy won the Championship B Flight with a 211 total, two strokes ahead of Oneonta’s Caleb O’Toole.

Jasper’s Sonny Peake won the Championship C Flight with a 215 total, six strokes ahead of Trussville’s Bernard Scott.

Decatur’s Kyle Taggart won the fourth flight with a 208 total, Berry’s Will Tyner (217) won the fifth flight, and Birmingham’s Eric Hoskins (226) won the sixth flight.

Jasper’s Rodney Kimbrell (230) won the seventh flight, Guin’s Robert Hendrix (240) won the eighth flight and Birmingham’s Mark Hyde (249) won the ninth flight.
