Hole-Out Eagle Propels Parrish to Southern Nevada Amateur Title

Some shots are better than others, and Jackson Parrish put an exclamation point on his Southern Nevada Amateur victory with a 113-yard hole out en route to a 40shot victory over Matt Mitchell in the championship division.

It was the second victory in a row for Parrish, who will play at Cal Poly this fall.

“It was weird,” Parrish said. “I wasn’t making a ton of birdies but made plenty of eagles (three over the two days). I took advantage of some good shots, especially into the par 5s.”

Others winning titles in the Southern Nevada Golf Association major were James Corey (Senior), Cyrus Whitney (Silver), Matthew Affleck (Net), Jack Kalmanson (Senior) and Loren Little (Silver).

The event was played on the Pete Dye-designed Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort Sun Mountain course.

Parrish loved the win, but told Insider writer Bill Bowman that he is still working to improve prior to the college season.

“I want to improve my course management,” he said. “I only made two bogeys in this tournament and that’s good out here. I just want to make sure to avoid making any huge mistakes. That can happen quickly at a course like this.”
