Columbus State’s Robert Mize shot a final round 3-under 67 to win the Georgia Amateur championship by four strokes at Macon’s Idle Hour Club on Sunday. Mize, the son of 1987 Masters champion Larry Mize, made six birdies, including four in a row from Nos. 7 to 10, to get to 8-under par and a five-shot lead with four holes to play. Only a triple bogey on the 466-yard par 4 17th hole left him at 5-under par and kept him from completely running away from the field. Four players — Kennesaw State’s Kelby Burton (72), Mercer’s Trey Rule (71), Georgia Southern associate head coach Carter Collins (70) and Atlanta’s Will Chandler (68) — tied for second at 1-under par. Lawrenceville’s Brad Davis (70), Georgia Southern’s Matt Mierzejewski (72) and third-round leader Stan Gann Jr. from Bonaire, all finished at even par to tie for sixth. Gann, who led by three at the completion of play on Saturday, got off to a bad start shooting 38 on his opening nine, but was still 4-under par standing on the 17th tee. A triple bogey on the long par 4 ended his bid to win the title and a bogey on the finishing hole left him with a final round 76 and dropped Gann from a share of second place. With Gann’s struggles, Burton, a rising fifth-year senior for the Owls, surged into the lead early in his front nine with birdies on the third and fourth holes, but a double bogey on six and three bogeys over his last eight holes kept him from challenging Mize for the title. Former Harrison High School and current South Carolina standout Blaine Woodruff got two late birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 to shoot a final round 71 and quietly move into a tie for 15th at 7-over par. The move was significant as it earned him a place in next year’s Georgia Amateur, as players finishing in the top 15 are exempt from qualifying. Of the other local players, Kennesaw State’s Wyatt Larkin shot a final round 69 to finish at 10-over par and a tie for 23rd. Kennesaw’s Daniel Kim shot 76 to finish at 12-over par, Kennesaw State assistant golf coach Chad Wilson closed with 74 and was at 13-over and Acworth’s Rob VanGorder (74) and Marietta’s Adam Wright (77) finished at 14-over.
