Camden Country Club miraculously stayed relatively dry allowing for an exciting final round to unfold. 

Caleb Proveaux of Lexington outlasted the 89 player field to claim the fourth annual Jimmy Creed Boys’ Invitational which was played on Saturday and Sunday. at the course located on Knights Hill Rd. 

The Gamecock commit shared the final pairing with fellow first round leaders Matt Moninghoff of Columbia and Joey Funderburg of Wilmington N.C. Proveaux began his final round with four pars, setting the stage to separate from the pack after birdies on No. 5 and No. 7. 

“It was all thanks to a good start,” Proveaux explained. “I hit the ball well, hit a lot of fairways and greens then I made a few putts, which is what you have to do out here.”  

The Lexington native bounced back from a bogey on No. 8 with a chip-in birdie on No. 9, giving him a one shot lead after a 33 on the front 9. 

 Proveaux continued his steady play on the backside and eventually converted a tap in birdie on the par 5 13th to stretch his lead to three. Moningham got back within two after Proveaux fell victim to a three-putt on No. 15. The lead stayed at two after both South Carolinians played seemingly identical shots on the par 3 16th. 

Proveaux gave himself an additional stroke heading into the final hole after trickling in a birdie on No. 17. A bogey after a wayward drive on the last yielded a bogey for Proveaux, which was more than enough to win the invitational in his fourth and final crack at it. 

“I have played in this event every year. It means a lot to win because this is my last junior event.” Proveaux said. 

Moninghoff also suffered a bogey on No. 18 but was able to secure second place. After a rocky start Funderburg found his stride and made 12 straight pars to tie Ryan Marter of Columbia, and Patrick Golden of Murrells Inlet for third. 

 Tyler Gray of Lugoff won the 15-16 division after piecing together an even par 70. Levi Moody of Greenville finished in a tie for second in the division after carding a 71. Carson Ownbey of Chandler, N.C. shared second with Moody after shooting 73 in the final round. 

Patrick Lindsay of Camden shot a 91-90—181 in the 15-16 division.
