Davis Wins Delaware State Amateur

June 28, 2007

Selbyville, DE - Incoming Virginia freshman golfer Amory Davis won the Delaware State Amateur Championship June 27 in dramatic fashion at the Bayside Resort in Selbyville.

Trailing by three shots on the final hole of regulation, Davis managed a par while tournament-leading Eric Onesi, a rising sophomore at Old Dominion, suffered a triple bogey to force a playoff. Davis won the playoff on the third hole to take the championship.

Davis had rounds of 72, 74, 74 and 76 for a 72-hole total of 8-over 296. It marked the first time Davis has won the title.

Davis earned honorable mention honors to the Rolex/American Junior Golf Association All-America team last year. He won last year's AJGA CorseMax/Philadelphia Runner Championship, shooting a final round 64. Davis was the runner up at last year's Bridgestone Junior Classic and finished second at the Delaware Junior Boys Amateur Golf Championship.

As a junior, he won the Delaware High School state title while attending Tatnall School.
