Pippin Takes Over At Ms State Amateur

Former Ole Miss star Lane Pippin ended Rhett Crowder's four-year run of dominance at the Mississippi Golf Association's State Amateur Championship on Sunday. Pippin closed strong, pulling away from Crowder and Michael Hodges, another former Rebel, with a final-round 68. The best round of the day gave Pippin a four-round total of 276 and a four-stroke victory at Canebreak Golf Club. He finished 8-under par. Hodges of Canton was second at 280, shooting a 71 on Sunday. He began the final round one stroke back. As for Crowder, who was looking to become the first player to win five straight State Ams, he shot a 69. The five-time champion started the tournament with a 66, but followed it up with a 75 on Friday. It left him with a deficit he couldn't make up as Pippin strung together four under-par rounds. Pippin, 27, from Ocean Springs, led the final three rounds, playing with Crowder on Saturday and Sunday. ``It was just really memorable for me to play with him the last two rounds,'' Pippin said of Crowder. Greg Martin of Starkville was fourth at 287, shooting a final-round 71. Will Dottley of Greenville joined Pippin and Crowder as the only golfers to break 70 on Sunday with a 69 that left him tied for fifth at 288. Ten-time champion Mike Taylor finished tied for seventh at 289. He shot a 72 on Sunday.
