Future Masters champion sets course record on way to title
DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - The final round of the 13-14 age group at the Future Masters wrapped up Tuesday. Kentucky native Matthew Troutman was the leader after two rounds but he couldn't find a rhythm ti close it out.
Troutman had a 3-shot lead but shot a 72 on the afternoon to finish in third.
Dothan native Brantley Scott was in contention in Round 3. Scott sunk a big birdie on 17, but would finish 1-under for the tournament and in a tie for 5th place.
No one was slowing down Ben Brogdon, who was rolling on the tournament's final day of competition. Brogdon was 4-under through the Front 9 and was just getting started. He would finish 6-under on the day and tie the course record for his age group with a 201 over the three days to capture the Future Masters crown.
"After the Front 9, after I shot 4-under on the Front 9, I was thinking, 'As long as I can shoot under par on the back I should be good.' I got off to a really good start. I had two birdies on the first two holes and I was just trying not to get in my own way. Not thinking too much and just playing like I did at the beginning of the round to keep it going," said Future Masters Champion Ben Brogdon.
The 15-18 year olds will hit the course Wednesday for their practice rounds before opening play Thursday.
