Robert Nelson of Fairhope claimed his second State Senior Amateur title with a final round 73 to win by three strokes over 2005 champion Richard Jeffers of Mobile. Nelson finished the championship at 207 (-9). The victory is his seventh AGA title: Junior (1978), Mid-Amateur (2009), Senior Four-Ball (2014, 2017), Four-Ball (2016), Senior (2017, 2019).

Playing in the final group together, Jeffers birdied his first four holes to quickly find himself within one shot of the lead. However, bogeys on three of the next four holes dropped him back and eventually finished with a round of 71 (210).

In the Super Senior Championship, Stewart Alexander of Auburn posted a final round 73 to win the Inaugural championship and his first AGA title.
