Whaley wins West Kentucky Am in playoff

By Jon Futrell jfutrell@paducahsun.com

MAYFIELD - Davis Whaley lost his one-stroke lead from Saturday's first round during Sunday's final round of the West Kentucky Amateur, played on the par-70 course at the Mayfield-Graves County Country Club. However, he needed only two sudden-death holes against Jason Lancaster to win it all. On the second hole, Lancaster had to settle for a bogey while Whaley made par.

Whaley led the field with 67 after Saturday's first round. In what became typical of most of the golfers, his Sunday score was a letdown as he shot a 72 to finish at 139. Lancaster trailed after the first round with 68 but came back with a 71 to tie at 139 and force the playoff.

Robert Cromwell leaped into third place by following a 70 on Saturday with a 72 on Sunday for 142. Trey Whitnell and Dustin Schultz made the final group of four with a 69 on Saturday. Both stumbled on Sunday with Whitnell shooting 75 for fourth place at 144, while Schultz got 76 for fifth at 145.

Mitchell Grooms scored 73 in both rounds to finish sixth at 146, while Jeremy Grantham followed a 71 with a 76 to take seventh at 147. Lanny Lancaster finished eighth with 148, but that was good enough to win the seniors group, followed by Eddie Choate (151) and Greg Cook (157). David Morris (151) and Scotty Butler (153) rounded out the championship flight.

Collins Dodson, 15, won the juniors division with a 150 with David Brundidge, 16, taking second at 156.

Jackie Dowdy fired a 145 to win the first flight over Brandon Henson with 146. Jason Goodyke took the second flight (152), and Brad Lawson won the third flight (164).
