Lafayette, Louisiana               June 10, 2018


Brandon Aydlett of Metairie fired a final round two-under par 70 on Sunday at Oakbourne Country Club in Lafayette to win the 99th LGA Amateur Championship by four strokes over Matt Weber of Scott. Aydlett shot rounds of 70-67-75-70 to finish at six-under par 282 for the Championship. Aydlett made three birdies on his front nine on Sunday (holes #2, #3, and #6), and the only blemish on his scorecard was a bogey at the signature par 3 9th hole. Aydlett bounced back after the bogey and played steady golf the remainder of the round, making nine consecutive pars to finish and secure the victory. Aydlett, a former golfer at LSU, won the LGA Mid-Amateur in 2015 at TPC Louisiana and now adds the prestigious LGA Amateur Championship trophy to his impressive resume. Aydlett said of this victory, “The Mid-Amateur was great to win, but this Championship is special and historic. It means a lot because it is the one that I have been pursuing and wanted for years. I’ll forever be a State Am champion and that’s something I’m very proud of.” Jack Tolson of Opelousas finished in third place and was the only other competitor to finish with a 72-hole score in red numbers (one-under par 287 for the Championship).
