The series now stands with South Carolina leading 9.5 to Georgia’s 8.5.

Two Palmetto State golfers battled for the individual title before Luke Sullivan from AC Flora was able to win the championship.

Sullivan shot rounds of 69 and 68 for a 7-under par 137 to finish one shot in front of William Jennings from Christ Church.

Georgia took the top three spots in the team competition.

Westminster from Atlanta finished as the top team in the tournament. Teams from Georgia took the top-three team spots. Johns Creek was second with Pius X in third place.
