23rd Annual Partners Championship

Grimes & Mitchell Take Home Title for Second Time

Jarrett Grimes and Chris Mitchell proved to be the team to beat as they shot a Tournament low score of twenty under par 123 to capture the SCGA’s 23rd Annual Partners Championship.  The team won their first Partners Championship back in 2007.  The Columbia and Prosperity tandem managed a ten under score on each of their two rounds and beat the nearest team by four shots.  In the Second Flight of the Championship Division, Jeff Pope and Thomas Todd took a one shot victory over former Champions Brent and Justin Roof.  Kyle Milner and Bryan Kelley took top honors in the Third Flight. 

In the Tournament Division, Manning Crapps and Ian Gohean continued their torrid play scorching the field by five shots with a two day total of 16 under par, 127.  The Lexington and Greenville duo managed seven birdies against only one bogey to shoot a final round score of 65.  The two teams of David Franks and Steve Steele along with Scott Biggerstaff and Gamble Ellis tied for first in the Second Flight.  Todd Garrett and Mike Rogers took a one shot victory in the Third Flight.    

The 2015 SCGA Partners Championship was played over two golf courses, the par 71 – 6,665 yard Spring Valley CC course in Columbia, S.C and the par 72 – 6,686 yard Members Club at Woodcreek course in Elgin. The field consisted of 110 two-man teams split into two different Divisions based on handicap, the Championship Division and the Tournament Division. Each division played a Captains Choice format the first day and a modified Texas Scramble the second while alternating courses each day. The Partners Championship is one of 21 Major Championships conducted annually by the South Carolina Golf Association.
