Petefish earns trophy at 2017 Azalea Invitational

Chris Petefish, a junior on the Georgia Tech men’s golf team, is the winner of the 2017 Azalea Invitational at The Country Club of Charleston. Petefish won by one stroke over Joseph Pagdin, Cole Hammer and Todd White, who tied for second. 

It was Petefish’s second appearance in the Azalea, one of the top amateur tournaments in the country. He moved into the lead late in the final round with birdies on 10, 12 and 15, and finished 4 under for the day. A key par save on No. 16 maintained his lead. He kept his approach on 16 under tree limbs off the left side of the fairway but couldn’t hold the green. He chipped back on to the green and made the par putt. He says he wasn’t sure if he was in the lead or not until he finished the round.

Pagdin and Hammer nearly forced a playoff but came up short on birdie chances on No. 18. White, the 2015 Azalea champion, chipped in from the fringe for a birdie on 18 and the tie for runner-up.
