Tim Dinwiddie Claims River Trace Golf Title

Tim Dinwiddie took command over the final nine holes and coasted to a six-shot victory Sunday afternoon in the River Trace Invitational Golf Tournament.

Starting the day tied with Mike Wilhoit after both players fired 3-under-67s during Saturday's first round of the 36-hole event, Dinwiddie found himself a shot behind Kevin Kinser after the first nine holes were completed Sunday.

But Dinwiddie shot a 2-under-par over the front side of the River Trace course, which was playing as the final nine holes of the tournament. Meanwhile, the rest of the contenders faded and Dinwiddie closed things out with a nice birdie on the tournament's final hole.

Dinwiddie's two-day total of 67-70--137 left him six shots ahead of his closest competitor, W.T. Daniels, who shot 72-71--143. Tommy Burns shot 68-76--144 to finish third, and Benji Fillers won a scorecard playoff for fourth place over Wilhoit after both finished at 146.

"I guess the birdie at No. 10 (the course's No. 1 hole) got me kick-started," Dinwiddie said. "I had made three bogeys on the front. I was able to get it up and down for par a few times on the back nine and that helped."

Kinser, who started the day two strokes off the pace after shooting 69 on Saturday, scored a brilliant 1-under-par 33 on the front nine Sunday to take a brief one-shot lead at the turn.

But Dinwiddie's birdie at No. 10 while Kinser had a 3-putt bogey swung the momentum back in favor of Dinwiddie, and he never let up. Kinser fell out of contention with a bogey at No. 12 (the No. 3 hole) and a double bogey at No. 13 (the No. 4 hole).

After shooting a 67 on Saturday to share the first round lead, Wilhoit, who won the Greene County Amateur last year, couldn't get things going on Sunday, falling back with a 39 over the front nine holes.

Burns, who began the final round one stroke back after shooting 68 Saturday, was steady most of the day, but had trouble closing out his round and finished bogey-double bogey.

Dinwiddie put an exclamation point on his fine play with a birdie at No. 18 (the No. 9 hole). After his tee shot rolled off the left side of the fairway and left him with a tricky downhill lie, he swatted his approach within two feet of the pin and proceeded to birdie the hole.

James Fender won the first flight in a playoff over Cal Doty after both finished at 149. Fender shot 77-72--149 and Doty had 76-73--149. Don McIntyre was third at 150 and David McCaslin was fourth at 153.

In the second flight, Bill Neal shot 81-72--153 to claim first place by one shot over Rodney Jones (81-73--154). Terry Botts and Neal G'Fellers each shot 156.

Frankie DeBusk took the third flight with rounds of 88-83--171 in a playoff over Ricky Susong (88-83--171). Wayne Kelton was third at 172 and Bill Southerland was fourth, also at 172.

Closest to the pin awards on Saturday went to Mike Wilhoit (No. 5), Ray Crawford (No. 7), Zip Wright (No. 13) and Spencer Smith (No. 16). Sunday's closest to the pin awards were won by Mike Gosnell (No. 5 and No. 7), Benji Fillers (No. 13) and Fred Grigsby (No. 16).
