LSU All-American Stewart Jolly 2nd place on Swing Thought Tour

readingputtMcCormick, South Carolina–Stewart Jolly posted the best finish of his early professional career this week at the SwingTought Tour’s Savannah Lakes Village event just outside McCormick, South Carolina.

Improving by a stroke each of the three rounds, Jolly recorded rounds of 68-67-66 for a 15-under par total of 201 for the week, just two shots behind eventual winner Ethan Tracy who fired a second round 10 under par 62. A bogey free 66 in Sunday’s final round propelled Jolly up the leader board, although he felt as though he left a few chances on the course. “I put on a clinic today. I even surprised myself with some of the shots I hit today. It was a lot of fun. I’ve been working hard on my game and putting.  If the putter heats up a little more today it might have been in the 50s.” Jolly noted.

Jolly had a stand-out career while at LSU.  A NCAA All-American, and First Team All-SEC member Jolly won multiple collegiate events as a leader on LSU’s team, and was the captain of the 2015 National Championship Team.  Away from LSU, Jolly was the 2014 Northeast Amateur Champion and a member of the 2014 Palmer Cup.

Jolly’s next events include the SwingThought Tour at High Point Country Club this coming week May 2-7 and then the Monday Qualifier for the Web.com’s Rex Hospital Open in Raleigh, North Carolina.
