Victory for Southern Trace Junior Golfer
Congratulations to Philip Barbaree of Southern Trace Country Club! On July 25, he won the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at Colleton River Plantation in Bluffton, South Carolina. Down by 5 holes with eight left to go, he made a dramatic comeback for a 37-hole win. It will go down in USGA championship history as the most holes played in the past 10 years. With this victory, he became the first Louisiana resident since 1977 to win this championship. He also matched the largest comeback in the 68-year history of the event.
Philip grew up in the junior programs and on the courses of Southern Trace Country Club. His Dallas-based instructor, Cameron McCormick, also coached 2015 U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth.
Way to go, Philip! We’re proud to have you as a Member in the ClubCorp family!
