Brumlow, a Cartersville eighth grader, was playing in his first-ever Southeastern event and fired a 3-under-par 68 with six birdies in the opening round. Brumlow then shot even in the final round to win the 14-15-year division and tied Nixon for the overall (68-71) at 139.
The two went to a playoff for the overall title with Nixon winning on the first playoff hole.
