Harbin wins SE Amateur in one-hole playoff

COLUMBUS (WTVM) - Dykes Harbin beat South Carolina golf team teammate Sean Kelly in a one-hole playoff on Saturday to win the 83rd Southeastern Amateur Tournament at the Country Club of Columbus.

Harbin parred the first playoff hole, while Kelly's par putt slid by the cup to end it.

Kelly birdied the 15th and 16th holes while Harbin birdied 17 to tie for the lead at the 72-hole mark.

Neither player was in the final group of the day in the fourth round. Instead, they took advantage of their opportunities when the top three players faltered.

Third round leader Tommy Mou of Florida totally collapsed. Mou shot 9-over 80 to see his three shot lead disappear, going from 8-under for the tournament to 1-over and a tie for sixth.

Keith Mitchell of UGA carded a 6-over 77 and had to settle for a fifth place finish at even par.

Two other Bulldogs fared better. Sepp Straka and Mookie DeMoss finished at 1-under par to tie for third. DeMoss' 68 was the best round posted on Saturday.

The playoff was the first at the Southeastern Amateur since 1996.
