Jake Peacock Wins 102nd Georgia Amateur Championship
Johns Creek, Ga. – Jake Peacock of Milton posts a 1-under-par 71 in the final round on Sunday and wins the Georgia Amateur Championship. The 102nd playing of the State Amateur took place at Rivermont Golf Club, July 13-16.
Peacock's final score of 6-under-par 278 (68-68-71-71) was good enough for a one-stroke victory to hoist the Robert H. Martin Trophy. The 20-year-old only scored a birdie on his second hole of the day before going bogey-bogey-double bogey on the fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively. He rebounded quite nice after the turn with birdies on 11, 12, 14 and 15. He made par on the final three holes to seal the deal.
Peacock played golf at Cambridge High School before playing golf at Western Carolina for a year, where he earned Southern Conference Freshman of the Year honors in 2022. Last summer, he transferred schools and now plays collegiately at the University of South Florida.
