$3,000 Southern Open

Atlanta, GA (Delowe Dr)

June 10-11, 1961

Reed Wins $3,000 Southern Open

The PPA $3,000 Southern Open ended up in a deadlock at 252, 36-under-par, today with the 1960 leading money winner, Frank Holt of Savannah, Georgia, and Pete Reed, Delta Airline employee of Atlanta, Georgia, being forced to play an 18-hole playoff for first place money and the Southern Open crown.

On rain swept carpet before a large gallery, Holt went one up on the first hole and held his advantage matching shots with Reed through the 15th hole. Holt then took a bogey on the 15th hole to cause the match to move into a deadlock again. On the 17th hole of the playoff round Reed scored a hole-in-one and Holt was forced to settle for a two thereby giving the winning edge of one stroke to the Atlanta pro. Third place was Daryl Freeman of Bristol, Tenn. with a 253, 35-under-par, for a $300 prize, followed by the two well known PPA Pros, Condy Roberson of Savannah, Ga. and Neil Connor, 1960 National Champion and winner of last week's $2,000 Orlando Open.

The next in the series of national PPA tournaments will be the $2,000 Durham Open, next weekend, June 17-18, at Putt-Putt Golf Course, 3120 Hillsboro Rd, Durham, NC. Charles Thompson, Managing Pro. Entry fees for the event are $4.00.
