SHGA / AMG Update: Stallings and Durant collect Top 10 finishes

Scott Hamilton Golf Academy / Athletic Motion Golf

Scott Stallings on the PGA Tour and Joe Durant on the PGA Champions Tour both collected Top 10 finishes this past weekend on their respective tours.

The two are professional golfers affiliated with Cartersville County Club's Scott Hamilton Golf Academy and/or Athletic Motion Golf.

Stallings tied for fifth place at the John Deere Classic Sunday and briefly held the lead in Silvis, Illinois before Bryson DeChambeau made a furious back-nine charge to win his first PGA Tour event.

Charles Howell III, Ben Crane, Chris Kirk, and Boo Weekley were the other SHGA/AMG players to make the cut at the John Deere Classic. Howell tied for 19th and Crane finished in a tie for 25th.

Stallings moved up twenty-four spots to 108th in the season-long FedExCup standings. Howell held steady at 18th place and Crane moved up four spots to 144th.

On the senior PGA Champions Tour, Joe Durant earned another strong finish with a tie for sixth at the Constellation Senior Players Championship -- one of five majors on that tour. Durant is now 12th overall in the Charles Schwab Cup standings for the PGA Champions Tour.

On the Tour, SHGA/AMG player Matt Atkins shot 62 last Thursday and followed that performance with rounds of 73-65-67 to tie for 13th at the Utah Championship.
