Millbrook tournament determines club’s champions

There was no shortage of golfers over the weekend during the Millbrook Golf and Country Club’s annual Club Championship. The temperature reached the high nineties during the tournament, but that didn’t deter 48 golfers from competing in the event that took place August 10 and 11. There were multiple age groups, with each group naming a champion at the end of the event. The Men’s Club Champion was Cameron Guidry, a junior golfer from Picayune Memorial High School. This wasn’t Guidry’s first win, and his experience showed.

“My mental game was my biggest obstacle to overcome because I knew there would be adversity on the course,” Guidry said.

“I needed to be mentally tough to finish.”

Guidry won the Junior Amateur Championship that took place recently in Tunica, Mississippi. Having been in big time tournaments before, Guidry was able to shoot the lowest score out of all competitors to win his second career Millbrook Club Championship.

“It felt good to win my second championship this year,” Guidry said. “This one was particularly special because it was against some really good players that I’ve known for a long time.”

Guidry said that he would use the win as motivation to finish the rest of the 2019 season strong. Kelsey Dill was named the Women’s Club Champion after shooting 179 over the two-day period. The senior from Pearl River Central High School recently won 3rd place at the MHSAA-5A Girls Golf Tournament, and she used that experience as a learning opportunity. There was also a Senior Club Champion, and that competition came down to the wire. After the two days of golf had ended there were four golfers still in contention to win. To determine who would be named champion, John Bailey, David Hattaway, Todd Larsen, and Todd Meitzler had a playoff on Hole 1 with Hattaway being named the victor. The Super Senior Club Champion was Bob Hannamon who shot 145 over the two days.
