Mackenzie Hughes finishes fourth at NGA Tour’s Savannah Lakes Village Classic
McCORMICK, SC – Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes could not hold onto his third-round lead on Sunday, slipping to 13-under par with a 2-over 74 for a fourth-place finish at the NGA Tour’s Savannah Lakes Village Classic.
Despite an eagle on the par-5 3rd hole, the 24-year-old Team Canada Young Pro Squad member struggled with six bogeys on the day. American Chas Narramore jumped on the opportunity, winning the tournament for a second time with a 5-under par 67.
Hughes, a Dundas, Ont., native, had built a one-stroke advantage following a remarkable 11-under, bogey-free 61 on Saturday before relinquishing the lead.
Hughes’ top-five performance adds to an impressive list of Canadian accomplishments on the NGA Tour this season—including recent wins from Adam Svensson (2), Albin Choi (2), Lucas Kim (2), Riley Wheeldon and Taylor Pendrith.
