Valdosta - With this being the first South Georgia Classic, there were not many in the Nationwide Tour field who were familiar with the Davis Love III Kinderlou Forest Golf Course.
Except for John Kimbell who just happened to have won a Hooters Tour event on the same course back in September.
Kimbell, who also played in a PGA qualifying school event last fall where he earned the right to play on the Nationwide Tour this year, used that knowlege to his advantage to record his first win on the PGA's Nationwide Tour on Sunday.
Kimbell somehow managed to shoot a 69 on a very blustery day and beat Australian Matt Jones by one shot.
Kimbell (-10) was the only player in the field to break 70 on Sunday.
Kimbell said "I have played here quite a few times in tournaments. It seems to always be windy here. I was just hitting it solid. I just knew I was going to play well. You just to have that attitude I think."
Chez Reavie and Jeff Klauk finished in a tie for fourth and Carlos Franco finished fifth.
Paul Dickinson, who had led or shared the lead for the first three rounds, struggled with a 79 in the final round and finished in a tie for 13th at one-over par.
Albany native Josh Broadaway finished at eight-over par.
