Three teams tied at 5-under-par 65, so a playoff was needed to determine the final qualifying spot and two alternate positions. Greg Kennedy/Reece Whitley, both of Duluth, Ga., Pete Abernathy/Blair Scurlock, both of Atlanta, Ga., and Tripp Coggins of Savannah/Ashley Loyd of Johns Creek returned to the first tee for the playoff.
Johns Creek, G.A. – Glenn Albright and Charlie McDaniel, both of Columbus, Ga., fired a 7-under-par 63 to earn medalist honors and qualify for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship. An 18-hole qualifier took place at Rivermont Golf Club in Johns Creek on Tuesday (September 22, 2015).
Kennedy and Whitley were eliminated first and finished as second alternate. Abernathy/Scurlock and Coggins/Loyd then played the 18th hole to continue the playoff. After both teams made par on 18, they returned to the first tee for the third playoff hole. On that hole is where Abernathy and Scurlock clinched the final qualifying spot into next year’s national championship. Coggins and Loyd finished as first alternate.
