Manning Earns First Professional Victory

Manning Earns First Professional Victory

ELGIN, S.C. -- Former Augusta State standout Major Manning fired a five-under 67 Sunday and claimed his first professional victory by a single shot in the Capitol Chevrolet & Hyundai Classic at Woodcreek Farms Golf Course outside of Columbia.

Manning, who began the final round tied with Andrew Dresser of Carrollton, Texas, tallied six birdies with only one miscue at the par-four third hole. He bounced back from his lone bogey with a birdie at the fourth and rattled off three straight birdies on holes 9-11. For the week, Manning racked up 24 birdies and an eagle.

A two-time All-America selection at ASU in 2005 and 2007, Manning earned $33,566 for the victory. He vaulted up to No. 12 on the Hooters Tour money list with $47,702. Manning finished at 21-under 267 for the four rounds.

Dresser tied for second place with Brennan Webb of Largo, Fla. Webb’s six-under 66 marked the low round of the day.

“I can finally play pain-free and that has made all the difference.” Manning said. “The course set up perfectly for a long hitter. The rough was higher and you were rewarded for hitting the fairway”.

The next stop for the NGA Hooters Tour will be September 15-21 at Bartram Trail Golf Club in Evans, Ga., for the $200,000 Kandy Waters Memorial Classic.
