BECK TROUTMAN WINS RAIN-SHORTENED SOUTHERN JUNIOR

West Point, Miss. Beck Troutman was declared winner of the 31st Southern Junior Championship after heavy rains washed out the third and final round Thursday at Old Waverly Golf Club.

Troutman, 18, from Fernwood, Mississippi, was the 36-hole leader at 5-under-par 139 and had maintained his sole leadership through two holes before play was halted Thursday.

"I'm definitely happy with the verdict," said Troutman. "I don't like winning this way, but I did win it. It was a great tournament despite the weather problems and they picked a great place to play it."

By winning, Troutman earned an exemption into the Southern Golf Association's prestigious, 100-year-old Southern Amateur next month at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia.
Gator Todd, son of former NFL quarterback Richard Todd, from Florence, Alabama, and Sam Rosati of Oldsmar, Florida, shared second at 140. Todd said he had no regrets about being denied the chance to score a final-round victory. "I'm not the best rain player and, besides, I threw away my chance yesterday." The co-leader after the first round, Todd slipped to a 1-over-par 73 in the second round.

In the 13-14 age group, Kevin Johnson of Jesup, Georgia, overcame Johathan Fly of Memphis, as they completed their rain-delayed second round early Thursday morning. Johnson carded a 69 to finish at 144, a shot ahead of Fly.

A total of 176 players, representing 17 states, took part in the championship and all were totally impressed with the golf course and facilities at Old Waverly and the hospitality shown by the staff.
