sports@islandpacket.comAugust 19, 2013 

JD Hoft and Jamie Manning are the 2013 SCGA Mid-Amateur Four Ball Champions after defeating first-round leaders Sammy Truett and Bert Atkinson in a one-hole playoff Sunday at the Dataw Island Club.

With both teams finishing at 13-under par after regulation, the two teams went back to the 557-yard par 5 18th hole in a sudden death playoff. With both Hoft and Manning right of the fairway, Truett and Atkinson both pulled their drives into the lateral hazard. After all players played to the green, Hoft found himself with a 15-foot birdie putt that he made to claim the title.

Finishing in third place were Bluffton's John Patterson and Beaufort's Rob Simmons at 132.
