Eli Marty fired a three-under par 68 on Sunday to outlast the field and win the 52nd Annual Travis Hudson/Bernard Weinstein Invitational at Musgrove Country Club.

Following back-to-back top-three finishes, Marty was able to distance himself from the field in the final round for a three-stroke win over Clay Guerin, Jackson King and Sam Goldasich.

Marty, from Falkville, placed second to Sam Jeffcoat following a two-hole playoff last year and finished third behind Guerin and Cody O’Toole in 2017.

Marty was the only golfer in the Championship A flight to shoot in the 60s in all three rounds. He finished with a three-day total of 204 after shooting 67, 69 and 68.

Hoover’s Guerin shot a 68 on Sunday and finished three strokes back at 207 along with Hoover’s Jackson King, who fired a 70 in the final round, and Birmingham’s Sam Goldasich, who entered Sunday tied with Marty for the lead, and shot an even par 71.

Fayette’s Andrew Hillis and Florence’s Brant Bishop tied for fifth place at 210, followed by Halevyille’s Rob Roberts (211), Sumiton’s Tommy Jean (213), Trussville’s Noah Dennis (215) and Birmingham’s Will Tyler (219).

Playing from the gold tees, Dora’s Bill Griffin matched Marty’s three-day total. Following rounds of 68 and 71, Griffin shot a six-under par 65 on Sunday for a 204 total. He finished 21 strokes ahead of both Fayette’s Bob Renfroe and Winfield’s Butch Ivie.

Huntsville’s Jonathan Nelson won the Championship B flight with a 216 total, edging Jasper’s Patrick Minor, Opelika’s Connor Reid and Detroit’s Josh Hollingsworth by one stroke.

Jasper’s Sonny Peake took the Championship C flight with a 221 total, two strokes ahead of Jasper’s Lane Oliver. Jeff Hartline of Mount Olvier won the Championship D flight, three strokes ahead of Birmingham’s Will Jourdan.

Other flight winners were Birmingham’s Keith Crumpton (first flight), Leeds’ Matt Bennett (second flight), Fayette’s Jason Norris (third flight), Jasper’s Rusty Clark (fourth flight), Hamilton’s Wayne Cobb (fifth flight) and Gardendale’s Todd Bates (sixth flight).
