The 2017 LGA Four-Ball Championship was both exciting and grueling. It took 23 hours and 13 minutes to complete the first round of play at English Turn Golf & Country Club in New Orleans. Play was suspended at 1:50 PM on Saturday and resumed at 8:30 AM on Sunday. Five pairing groups were able to finish their first round on Saturday, so the second round was started at 8:30 AM as well. The final group to finish on Sunday put the flagstick in the hole on #18 at 5:50 PM. Nobody performed better under those difficult circumstances than Seth Dufrene of Luling and Justin Lowe of Alexandria. Dufrene and Lowe fired a first round 64 and a second round 67 to finish with a 36-hole total of 13-under par 131 and win the 2017 LGA Four-Ball Championship.

DEREK BUSBY WINS 98TH LOUISIANA GOLF ASSOCIATION AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP

Baton Rouge, Louisiana — June 11, 2017

Derek Busby of Ruston fired a final round 66 to win the 2017 LGA Amateur Championship at The Country Club of Louisiana by four strokes over Trey Winstead of Baton Rouge.  Busby saved his best for last and finished his stellar week in style. His final round 66 was tied for the low round of the tournament and included one eagle, six birdies, eight pars, and three bogeys.  Busby’s 72 hole total of twelve-under par 272 was comprised of rounds of 69-70-67-66.  Busby is a former collegiate golfer at Louisiana Tech and is a member at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant.  This is the first time he’s been able to claim the state’s most prestigious Amateur golf championship, but the way that Busby is playing makes one think there will be a few more in his future.

EDDIE LYONS WINS 2017 LGA SENIOR AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP

Shreveport, Louisiana — May 20, 2017

Eddie Lyons of Shreveport fired a final round one-over par 73 at Southern Trace Country Club to win the 28th LGA Senior Amateur Championship by one shot over Bill Land of Lafayette. Lyons started the day with a two-shot lead over Land and never relinquished it. Lyons is a Shreveport native and Southern Trace Country Club member, and his local course knowledge served him well all week. He shot rounds of 75, 66, and 73 to finish at two-under par 214 for the Championship. This is Lyons’ second LGA Senior Amateur Championship, having won this event in 2003 at Gray Plantation in Lake Charles. He’s also finished runner-up twice in this event (2013 & 2014). Lyons and Land were the only two competitors to finish under par for the Championship.

To win at his home club in his hometown made this victory especially sweet for Lyons. Southern Trace has hosted a number of LGA Championships over the years, including the Amateur and Mid-Amateur; however, this is the first time the Arthur Hills designed track has hosted the State Senior Amateur. Lyons had this event circled on his calendar as soon as it was announced as a future site. Lyons said, “I was thrilled for the opportunity to play on my home course. It helps when you know what those four foot putts do. I putted well today and was able to hang on and grind out a victory.” For the 54-hole Championship, Lyons carded one eagle, ten birdies, thirty-four pars, eight bogeys, and one double bogey.
