Golf season heating up in Southside
Nelson Mayton of Nottoway River Country Club and Randy Whitlow of Lunenburg Country Club joined forces over the week-end and won a hard-fought battle at the Gigg Butts Memorial Invitational in South Hill.
Mayton/Whitlow shot a week-end best ball score of 63-62--125 (17-under-par).
After a 63 on Saturday, they trailed the always formidable duo of Bryant Reese/ Dan Irby by one stroke.
Mayton/Whitlow got hot Sunday, shooting 62 -- three shots better than the first round leaders. Whitlow helped seal the deal on the par-5 17th. After his teeshot struck a tree and bounced into the fairway, Whitlow knocked a 4-hybrid from 205 yards to two feet for eagle. “It was very exciting,” Whitlow recalled, while also praising his playing partner. “Nelly is a play-ah!”
