Camden’s Ryan Reynolds finished second overall in the Gross Division in the 2015 World Amateur Golf Tournament held in Myrtle Beach earlier this fall.

Reynolds, a former golfer at Camden High School, shot a 71 in the Friday playoff which was the best score of the four finalists in the Gross Division. Reynolds finished with a four-day 292 stroke total in the event which was played over the Barefoot Dye Course.

Reynolds also attended the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach.

More than 3,300 golfers from 48 states and 28 countries took part in the event which has been played for 33 years.

The World Am is open to all golfers, 17 years old and above, with a certified USGA handicap or foreign equivalent. It features six competitive divisions, ranging from men 49 and under to the super seniors (70+), Women's division and recently created Gross Division. Within the divisions, golfers are flighted by closely grouped handicaps. 

The event features around 70 flights and the winner of each advances to the Flight Winner’s Playoff, an 18-hole shootout that determines the World Champion. The tournament is played on approximately 60 different Myrtle Beach area courses, including several Top 100 public layouts, and each flight plays a different course each day.
