Trey Rule - 2014 Dogwood Champion

6-28-14 - The final round of The Dogwood Invitational concluded today with a win for Trey Rule, a rising senior at Mercer University. A shootout between Rule and Zach Seabolt from Winthrop University finished with both players wrapping up the tournament tied at 21 under par and The Dogwood's third playoff in 20 years. Billy Kennerly, a junior at Clemson University, finished the 18th hole with a birdie, securing a third place finish and putting him in elite company with Rule and Seabolt. 

Seabolt's remarkable third shot from 35 yards out skipped within inches from the hole, a gimme that tied him with Rule who two-putted on 18 for bogey. The playoff began on the first hole, which proved not to be enough to decide who would reign champion of this year's tournament. After a pair of pars, Rule and Seabolt went to hole 18 to determine this year's victor.
On the 18th, Seabolt approached the tee shot as he had all week - to smash it down the fairway - but the  ball nicked a 100-year-old oak off of the tee, leaving him a tough shot to progress from. Rule capitalized on the opportunity and finished with a par, securing his name in tournament history as The 2014 Dogwood Invitational Champion.

6-27-14 - The third round of The Dogwood Invitational concluded with a low score of 63, 9-under-par, by Trey Rule, the 2014 Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year from Mercer University.  

Anders Albertson, a junior at Georgia Tech, tied with Billy Kennerly, a junior at Clemson University, for second place with a 64, 8-under-par. Zach Seabolt from Winthrop University came in third with a 65, 7-under-par. 
With the top three players tight on the heels of Rule, players including Jimmy Beck, Travis Smyth and Davin White, only five-seven shots off the lead, the intense competition that we are accustomed to at The Dogwood is heating up to be an great shootout. The final round is setting up to be an instant classic in tournament history.
