Golf Course: Grey Rock Golf Club is located in Austin, just south of downtown Austin. Built in 1992, the Jay Morrish designed golf course features 18 premier golf holes over 160 acres. The par-72 course reaches a max yardage of 6,909 yards. Saturday’s round was contested at 6,867 yards.
Weather: 76 degrees and mostly cloudy through the day with wind gusts up to 22 mph.
Winners’ Info: Young, who played in the second to last group of the day, carded a final round score of 3-under par 69 to claim the 2019 South Mid-Amateur title. His final round score of 3-under par got him back to even par 216 for the tournament. On the day, Young carded seven birdies, two bogeys and what he thought would be a costly big number on the par-4 18th. His double-bogey ended up inconsequential, however, as he overcame a four-shot deficit to win the tournament by two strokes.
In Contention: Kevin Liberto of Cypress finished in second behind Young after a 1-under 71 final round. Liberto finished with a tournament total of 2-over 218. Kurtis Lilley, also of Cypress, finished in solo third, with a tournament total of 4-over 220. Lilley’s third place finish earned him Mid-Master honors which is awarded to the low player in the field 40 years of age or older. Will Griffin of Austin, and Broc Haymon of Pearland finished in a tie for fourth with a tournament total of 5-over 221.
