Langdale fires 68 to win SCGA Junior Championship at Oldfield

Townville's Austin Langdale posted a third consecutive round in the 60s, shooting 4-under-par 68 at Oldfield Golf Club on Thursday to claim a three-shot victory in the final round of the S.C. Golf Association's Junior Championship.

Langdale made five birdies and one bogey to maintain the lead after starting the final round with a one-shot lead over reigning Junior Heritage champion Matthew Nesmith of North Augusta, who shot 2-under 70.

Beaufort's J.D. Lehman was the top local finisher in the 15-17 age division, placing ninth after a final-round 75.

The top eight finishers will represent South Carolina in the 36th annual Georgia-South Carolina Junior Team Matches next month at May River Golf Club.

In the 13-14 age division, Greenville's Keenan Huskey made a birdie on the first playoff hole to defeat Inman's Trevor Phillips.

Bluffton's Bryson Nimmer shot 75 for the second consecutive day to finish eighth, and Josh Fickes of Lady's Island posted 78 to tie for ninth.
