Cartersville’s Buck Brumlow shot rounds of 73 and 68 Monday and Tuesday for a 2-under-par total at Green Island Country Club in Columbus to win the 2021 Class 5A State Championship individual title by one shot over Carter Loflin of St. Pius X. Finley Burke of Wayne County finished third with a 2-over-par total of 144.

Brumlow, a University of Georgia signee, was tied with Woodward Academy’s Wyatt Seilkop after the opening round. Seilkop shot 76 Tuesday and dropped to a tie for seventh place.

Brumlow’s round on Tuesday included back-to-back birdies on No. 8 and No. 9 to closed the front nine at 2-under-par 33. He then picked up additional birdies at No. 14 and No. 16 on the inward nine. His only flaw of the day was a bogey at No. 15.
