Bronson Myers won the 2021 Midlands Chevy Dealers Columbia City Golf Championship

For the Columbia City Golf tournament

Bronson Myers tied the tournament record in the first round and apparently left the field playing for second place in this year’s Midlands Chevy Dealers Columbia City Golf Championship at Spur in Northwoods.

But in the last nine of Saturday’s final round, “things started to take a turn for the worse,” he said. “It looked like I was trying to give it away.”

He then righted the ship and added to the collection of championships he won during a distinguished career in high school and junior golf. Despite a final of 4 over par 76, he finished his three laps at 8 under par 208, three strokes better than Eddie Hargett.

Myers, who shone at Hammond School and now plays for Elon College, blistered the Northwoods track with a 62-under-par on Thursday and added a minus-70 score in the rain-delayed second round.

Coming into the last nine of Saturday’s final round after another rain delay, he had a nine-stroke advantage and said: “I felt pretty good after making a 12 and 13 birdie.”

But he hit two tee shots in the water on the 14th par-4 drivable and made a quadruple bogey 8. “A bad decision that I’ll learn from,” he said.

Then, after perfect practice on the 15th par-4, Myers landed his second shot en route to a triple bogey 7.

“The ball went horizontal, never forward,” he said. “I knew Mr. Hargett played golf regularly and I had to settle down.”

The champion made two pars and a birdie on the last three holes to collect the tournament material.

“I played the last nine holes (6 under par) 30 Thursday and the same nine holes in (four over par) 40 today,” he said. “It’s golf.”

Hargett, South Carolina’s senior player of the year for the past two years, shot 68-73-70-211 in three trips on the 6,800-yard, par 72 Northwoods. At 60, he’s almost 40 years older than Myers.

“That’s what’s great about golf,” Myers said. “You can continue to play well, and Mr. Hargett is playing very well.”

Myers is mentored by Columbia teaching professional Fred Wadsworth and comes from a tendon injury that prevented him from playing for Elon’s team last season.

“I severed two tendons on one finger and I didn’t hit a club for five months,” he said. “It’s good to come back and play again. ”

Myers will compete in the South Carolina Amateur in early August at the DeBordieu Club near Georgetown before returning to school for his freshman year. He hopes to one day test his skills in professional golf.

For now, he’s relishing the victory “which was closer than I wanted, but I learned from it and those lessons will help me move forward.”

Matthew Hutto and Chase Sturkie shared third place at 215 with Jon Mathias fifth at 217.

In the senior division, David Collins edged Brad Krapfel in the playoffs after the pair were tied at 1 below par 215. Jimmy Martin won the super-senior competition for the third year in a row, posting an even average of 216 for better Robin Alley in four moves.

Burke Cromer, pro assistant at Northwoods, won the professional division title, limited to 18 holes. He shot a 7 under par 65 on his home run.

Tournament officials presented the David Bennett Golf Service Award to Tournament Director Allen Knight, who took over operations of the event several years ago. The honor cited his relationship building skills, work ethic and expertise in hosting golf tournaments.

Matthew Hutto received the Scott Hannon Memorial Sportsmanship Award. Hutto, who finished third for third at this year’s tournament, started his golf course as part of the Fairway Outreach program at the age of 7 and will be playing for Winthrop University this fall.
