HOOVER, AL – (Sept. 18, 2021) Results of the 33rd Alabama State Mid-Amateur Championship, hosted by Hoover Country Club (HCC), in Hoover, AL, on Sept. 18, 2021.
Round two endured three morning delays, beginning at 7:30 a.m., before Hoover Country Club’s course was fully flooded due to heavy downpours. Catastrophic flooding at HCC will take days, if not weeks, to recover from.
After much thought and consideration, The Committee resolved to declare this event as an 18 hole Championship.
Tyler Hitchner of Tuscaloosa and Will McCurdy of Auburn are declared co-champions of the 33rd Alabama State Mid-Amateur Championship. Each player posted a six-under 66 for round one.
The Alabama Golf Association apologizes for any inconvenience, as this outcome was most certainly not desirable. This resolution was the best option, all circumstances considered.
This Championship is conducted by the Alabama Golf Association.
