Atlanta, GA - Lee Williams nailed a 12-foot birdie putt on his first playoff hole to win the U.S. Pro Golf Tour's Cobb's Glenn Classic, securing his second consecutive U.S. Pro Golf Tour victory and taking home a $36,000 first place check once again.
Williams, a client of Career Sports & Entertainment, shot rounds of 68-66-69 at the Cobb's Glen Country Club in Anderson, S.C., defeating Stuart Deane in the playoff. Ironically, it was Deane who Williams defeated two weeks ago in Ruskin, FL, when Williams won the Cypress Creek Invitational.
A former All-American at Auburn University and a two-time member of the U.S. Walker Cup team, Williams has won the first two U.S. Pro Golf Tour events ever played.
Fellow Career Sports & Entertainment client, David Denham, shot rounds of 67-70-68 to finish at 11-under and a tie for fourth.
Both golfers have now secured spots in the inaugural Trump Million Dollar Invitational at the Raffles Resort on Canouan Island in The Grenadines from May 23-25. Top prize in that tournament is $1,000,000.
In just his first full year of professional golf, Williams, 24, also finished third at the NGA Hooters Tour Classic at Royal Lakes during the week of April 6-9.
