COLUMBUS, Ohio – TCU senior Hayden Springer from Trophy Club, Texas, briefly went into shock when he heard the roar from behind the 16th green on Friday in the final round of the 115th Trans-Mississippi Amateur Championship. He had hit his 9-iron exactly where he wanted – to the left of the flagstick and well past it – knowing the sloped green funnels hard down to the right.

The shot spun back some 35 feet and finished in the bottom of the cup. The eagle pushed Springer into a tie for the lead of the prestigious championship. Two pars on the final holes gave him a final round 4-under 68 and the coveted victory at Brookside Golf & Country Club.

“That was incredible. I was not expecting it,” said Springer, who won by a single shot over incoming Texas freshman Pierceson Coody from Plano, Texas, and 2017 Augusta State graduate Jake Marriott from Naples, Fla. “That was my first hole in one in competition. It kind of felt like things were going my way after that.”

Indeed they were. On postcard-perfect weather day at an old-school course that demands accuracy and patience, no less than four players took turns holding the lead during the championship’s final 90 minutes. Low Mid-Amateur winner Justin Tereshko from Lexington, Ky., started the day with a two-shot lead and held it for much of the final day. Marriott birdied holes 10, 11 and 12 to tie Tereshko, who fell back with three back-nine bogeys. Coody moved the top of the leaderboard with his fourth birdie of the day, a tap-in on the 527-yard par-5 11th after he narrowly missed his eagle attempt.

Marriott pushed ahead again with a short birdie on the 15th. He was walking in the 17th fairway when he heard the gallery behind him on No. 16 cry out after Springer’s ace. It was the fourth hole-in-one on the picturesque, uphill par 3.

“Obviously, I knew what it was,” Marriott said. “I didn’t know who made it, though. I just tried to stick to my game plan and keep playing.”

Marriott missed his par putt on No. 17, which cracked the door open for Springer. He made a delicate up-and-down from the left side of the 17th green to make par. He finished in a way that would’ve made Ben Hogan proud: fairway, green, two-putt par for the championship. Springer shot 67-68 in the final two rounds to score the victory.

“This is the biggest accomplishment I’ve had in golf, and I’m going to remember it forever,” said Springer, who in 2016 won a four-for-one Monday Qualifier playoff and competed in the PGA Tour’s FedEx St. Jude Classic. “I’ve dreamed of this for a long time and it means a lot to me. It really does.”

Springer now adds his name to the Trans-Miss Amateur Championship trophy next to the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Ben Crenshaw.

Several players with Oklahoma ties competed and made the cut, including Wells Padgett of Wichita who played extensively on the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour. Padgett finished tied for 13th.

The self-titled “Burly Boys” from the University of Oklahoma, Blaine Hale and Quade Cummins, tied for 17th and 42nd, respectively. Draegen Majors of Tulsa tied for 37th.
