Revis wins 47th J.P. Traynham Invitational

Jeremy Revis has his name on a lot of trophies around the Upstate including the Greenville County Amateur trophy.

However, he had not been able to get his name on the J.P Traynham trophy until this year.

The J.P. Traynham is the oldest club sponsored tournament in the Upstate. This was the 47th annual event named for one of Greenville’s golf pioneers.

Jeremy Revis won his first J.P. Traynham Invitational at Paris Mountain Country Club.

“I’ve had some crazy things happen to me up here,” said Revis. “I’ve been close and gotten beat on great shots so I’m glad to finally win this one,” he said.

Revis trailed three-time champion Johnny League by a shot going into the final round.

“I really didn’t do anything special in the first round. I made three birdies and a couple of bogeys for a one-under round,” he said.

Revis’s second round was almost a mirror image of his first go round. He finished with another 1-under par 71 in some windy conditions.

“We had two pretty nice days, but the wind did kick up and caused some problems for some of the guys. I was fortunate that it didn’t bother me as much,” he said.

While League fell back defending champion Mike Hartin and two-time champion Shane Birckbichler tried to catch up with the very steady Revis.

Revis held off the competition and added some insurance with a birdie on the 16th hole.

“This is always a good tournament and there were a lot of really good players here this year,” he said. “I was glad to get that birdie just in case something crazy happened to me again,” he said.

Hartin had some trouble late in the round and finished in second place with a 146 total.

Derrick Oyervides and Birckbichler tied for third place at 3-over par 147..

Barry Dilworth won the Senior Division title shooting a two round total of 151.

Flight Winners included: First Flight – Michael Jordan, Second Flight – Todd Reid, Third Flight – Benjo McGrath, Fourth Flight – Tray Laws. Senior First Flight – Kyle Davis, Senior Second Flight – Phillip Hawkins.
