Neil Thompson Captures Alabama Chapter Championship

Neil Thompson outlasted three fellow competitors to capture the 2018 Alabama Chapter Championship, sponsored by Mobile Pro Shop at Canebrake Club. Thompson, Clay Brown and Jacob Greer all started the final round at one under par after opening rounds of 71. The final group of the day battled until the last hole to determine the champion. Thompson birdied three holes on the front nine to go out in 33 but three bogeys on the back nine put him back to even par for the day (one under for the tournament) as he came to the final hole. With Jeff Jordan sitting in the clubhouse at even par and Brown and Greer playing the last hole at even par as well, Thompson managed to birdie the last hole and pull out a two shot victory. Jordan, Brown and Greer all finished tied for second at even par. Andrew Peyton and Jordan Debonis finished tied for fifth place.
