Ben Carr goes on three-day birdie blitz to win his second Southeastern Amateur title

There’s a reason Ben Carr stars the Southeastern Amateur on his calendar each year. Playing at his home course – Country Club of Columbus (Georgia) – Carr showed again on Friday why that is. The soon-to-be senior at Georgia Southern made just one bogey in 54 holes to win his second Southeastern title, becoming the 16th player in the tournament’s 92-year history to do that. (Allen Doyle holds the record of five career victories from 1983 to 1992.)

Carr’s latest title was more a story of steady versus drama. In the summer of 2019, Carr all but wrapped up the title with his third-round 9-under 61, a CC of Columbus record. Asked to recall that round early week, Carr found he could still replay it in his mind easily.

“I remember it very well,” he said. “I guess I remember the entire scorecard now that I think about it.”

This time, Carr never strayed very far from that number, recording rounds of 64-62-63 that left him at 21 under and once again produced a 10-shot win.

Mississippi State’s Garrett Johnson finished second at 11 under followed by Clemson’s Zack Gordon at 10 under.

Carr made only one bogey the whole week – at the par-3 fifth hole in the second round. It followed four birdies he had made to open. Remarkably, he never recorded a nine-hole score higher than 32.

Like in 2019, Carr had younger brother Sackett on his bag. The two are particularly close and Carr said that his brother’s presence was one thing that made his 2019 that much more special.

Carr will tee it up again at the Western Amateur next month before beginning his senior season at Georgia Southern.
