Sunday, July 1, 2012
ATLANTA - Ben Kohles, a Virginia graduate, finished the final round of the Dogwood Invitational at 17 under with a score of 67, securing his win by two shots.
Michael Kim, a student at California, came in second, just one shot behind Kohles. Third place went to Virginia graduate Bruce Woodall, who had started the day in first place. Both Kim and Woodall finished the final round 15 under.
“It’s been another great week of exciting amateur play here at Druid Hills,” said Edward Toledano, chairman of the Dogwood Invitational. “With a talented field full of aspiring PGA professionals, it’s exciting to watch sensational golf on our home course and know that we are not only enjoying the best of golf, but we are also sending our 25th Reynolds scholar to Clemson. The Dogwood thrives because it’s the best of everything: volunteerism, competition, philanthropy, values and America’s greatest game – golf.”
Under intense heat, the top 40 teed off in a double tee start at the first and 10th holes, which allowed players to complete the 18-hole final round before the afternoon temperature peaked.
