BLUFFTON, S.C. – Former Gamecock Mark Anderson ran away with the South Carolina Amateur Championship over the weekend, winning by six strokes at Berkeley Hall Plantation on Sunday. He led a pack of several current and former Gamecocks that made the cut in the South Carolina Golf Association event.

Anderson turned in rounds of 71-64-67-70=272 (-16) to finish six shots clear of his nearest competitor. That happened to be former Gamecock golfer and head coach Steve Liebler, who tied for second place at 278 (-10). Rising seniors Patrick Rada and George Bryan IV were tied for fifth place at 282 (-6), and sophomore Wesley Bryan tied for 12th place at 286 (-2).

Rising senior Paul Woodbury (290), sophomore Clint Tolleson (296) and alumnus David Seawell (301) all made the cut as well.

Anderson, Woodbury, Rada and Wesley Bryan will all now turn their attention to the U.S. Amateur Championship, which begins Aug. 24 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Okla.
