SAVANNAH - Despite a valiant effort from the Peach State in the final round, the deficit proved to be too steep as the visitors from across the border win the Georgia-South Carolina Junior Challenge Match, 10.5 to 5.5. This year's junior challenge match took place at The Landings Club-Deer Creek, July 20-21, 2018.

The next match finished all square as Takafumi Shimoji of Suwanee and Drayton Stewart of Charleston, S.C., each earned a half-point for their respective team. Erik Forberg of Cumming then defeated Keegan Vaugh of Myrtle Beach, S.C., 1 up. Eli Scott of Hartwell, who won his match on day one, fell to Brandon Masters of Piedmont, S.C., on day two, 1 up.
In match four, Myles Jones of Suwanee fell to Dillon Hite of Lexington, S.C., 1 up. The match that followed went Georgia's way as Samuel Lape of Atlanta topped Trey Crenshaw of Lancaster, S.C., 1 up. Brandon Cho of Suwanee earned a half-point for Georgia as he finished all square with Connor Fahey of Greenville, S.C.
