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.
