Channeling Bobby Jones, Georgia amateurs shine at the Dogwood

The 2021 Dogwood Invitational included a pair of thunderstorms the last two days that caused long weather delays at Druid Hills Golf Club. But the prestigious tournament, which is known to produce low scores from those contending for the big winner's trophy, saw a golfer transferring to Georgia Tech and a current University of Georgia player start and finish this edition of the event with rounds that legendary amateur Bobby Jones, who has ties to this storied private course in suburban Atlanta, would have enjoyed witnessing with his own eyes.

Worth the wait: Mancheno stays cool for Dogwood title

ATLANTA – Before Brandon Mancheno could claim his Dogwood trophy, he had to stand around and think about it for half an hour. Some players may not do very well with that, but to Mancheno, that’s what teammates are for. Including Mancheno, there were four Auburn players in the Dogwood Invitational field. When the horn blew Friday afternoon to call players in for lightning, Mancheno had just hit his tee shot on the par-3 17th. He was playing in the final group, and he was tied for the lead with Isaiah Jackson, who had just signed for a final-round 63 when the storm hit.

Poole Gets Biggest Win, Validation

Ashton Poole might not have been in the position to win the 52nd Dogwood Invitational if it hadn’t been for an old friend back in Charlottesville, Va. Poole got a little nudge to get in the field a year ago from former U.S. Amateur and British Amateur champion Vinny Giles, who had been a two-time winner of the Dogwood. “When a former champion calls, you listen to what they have to say,” said Dogwood Tournament Chairman Edward Toledano.

Lloyd Jefferson Go Breaks Through at The Dogwood Invitational

After weeks of threatening leaderboards, Seton Hall’s Lloyd Jefferson Go from the Philippines was able to put the pieces together and break through with a win on Saturday in Atlanta. The newest Dogwood Champion fell behind early but made a furious charge that would be just enough to edge ahead of the field, winning by one shot over Georgia Tech golfer Luke Schniederjans. Go would begin the day in a three-way tie for the lead, shared with former champion Dawson Armstrong, who has had plenty of experience at Druid Hills, winning The Dogwood in 2015 and finishing in a tie for second in last year’s championship; and Campbell’s Gaston Bertinotti from Argentina who was hoping to cap off an impressive 66-68-67 performance with a big win.
