Gage Landry set out to defend his title as the Baton Rouge Champion. Defend he did, and in a rather convincing manner. Blistering a demanding front nine with a two under 34, he finished with a one over 73 to eclipse the field by a margin of 7 strokes. The St. Amant golfer who staged a come from behind victory on the back nine in 2019, acknowledged that this year he set out with a plan to take more of a commanding role in the early goings, a plan that worked very well.
Julie Harrison was basically fairways and greens on the front nine, shooting a one over 37; meanwhile Sophia Macias started off with a pair of double bogeys. Settling her nerves, Macias finished just three strokes behind with a birdie on the difficult 9th hole. Undaunted by Macias’s birdie, Harrison knocked in a 6 foot downhill breaking putt on the same 9th green.
Greg Berthelot & Taylor Calandro shot a 6-under par 66 round at Beaver Creek today to win the 2020 Plainsman Better-Ball tournament with a two day 10-under par 134 total.

Berthelot and Calandro won the second tie-breaker with a 3-under 33 on the back 9 on Sunday. The low round of the day went to Landon Covington and Robbie White who shot a 7-under par 65 to finish one shot back in third place, winning a tie-breaker at 135 with Tommy & Mickey Garrity.
Phil Frazier and Jeremy Gautreaux won the First Flight after posting 71-65-136. The Second Flight went to Tommy Hodson & Davis Dicharry with 73-67-140. Brek Balantine and Matthew Jakuback won the Third Flight with 78-72-150.
It took a 2-under par 70 for a 3-under 141 total, and two playoff holes for Jeff Calloway to win the 2020 Senior Baton Rouge Open. Calloway and Johnny Hernandez tied at 3-under par.

Lindsay Spiller, Jamie Lavigne, Randy Goff, and Paul Castro all tied for 4th at even par 144. Congratulations to Jeff Calloway, the 2020 Senior Baton Rouge Open champion.

Two-seed Greg Berthelot played three-seed Jeremy Gautreaux today in the final match of the 2020 Baton Rouge Amateur. This match was a heavy weight slugfest with birdies flying as they made their way around Santa Maria golf course. By the time they reached the 18th tee Berthelot had made seven birdies, Gautreaux had made four birdies, and Berthelot had a 1-up lead in the match. Berthelot just needed to tie the hole to win, while Gautreaux needed to win hole 18 to extend the match. True to form for the day, they both made birdie on 18 and Greg Berthelot became the 2020 Baton Rouge amateur Champion. Congratulations to both players on a well-played match and to Greg Berthelot for capturing the 2020 Baton Rouge Amateur Championship.Read More
