Former Reb Golfer Jordan Dempsey Wins Hooter's Title Former Rebel golfer Jordan Dempsey won his first ever NGA Hooter's Tour title Sunday, firing a 7-under par 65 in Sunday afternoon's final round of the Buffalo Run Casino Classic over the 6,960 yard, par 72 Peoria Ridge Golf Club.
MIAMI, Okla. -- Former Rebel golfer Jordan Dempsey won his first ever NGA Hooter’s Tour title Sunday, firing a 7-under par 65 in Sunday afternoon’s final round of the Buffalo Run Casino Classic over the 6,960 yard, par 72 Peoria Ridge Golf Club.
“It feels great to win, especially having my dad on the bag,” said Dempsey, moments after he sank the final putt. “This is a belated Father’s Day gift of sorts to my dad for walking thirty-six holes with me today.
“Without the support of my wife (McCall) and my family I wouldn’t be here today. I was really frustrated with my game two weeks ago after a poor round, and she talked me through it, and look what happened.”
Dempsey, who earned first team All-SEC honors in 2005 for the Rebels, carded rounds of 67-65-67-65 for a four-day total of 24-under par 264 and a one stroke victory over Australians Andrew Tschudin and Bronson La’Cassie. Tschudin and La’Cassie finished the week at 23-under par 265.
A native of Baton Rouge, La., Dempsey collected a career best $33,566 for his first career win, while Tschudin and La’Cassie took home $13,762 for their runner-up finishes.
The Hooters Tour takes six weeks off before swinging back into action Aug. 6-12 in Choctaw, Miss., for The Pearl River Resort Classic at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club.
