Salter edges 16-year-old Crews for Albany Amateur title

The Albany Amateur Golf Tournament didn't end without some drama as former Deerfield-Windsor Knight James Salter and current Knight Josh Crews went to an extra playoff hole.  Crews, a 16-year-old- student at Deerfield, fell short after bogeying the playoff hole and losing by one stroke. Crews shot a 75 on Sunday to tie Salter who had a one stroke lead coming into the second round of the two day tournament.

Meanwhile, on the women's side, former Southland golfer Kathryn Fowler won her 3rd straight Albany Amateur Championship shooting a 72 final round, 148 for the tournament.

Salter said "I think the important thing is to just stay in the rhythm that you've been going in all day. Don't change anything, it's no different than when we teed it up this morning. You just want to keep the same routine and play as if you've been doing it all day. It feels very good since you've been plugging at it all day to come out on top."

Crews said "I mean there's some good players out here you know. You're playing the golf course, you're not playing against them so you just go out there and do your best"

Fowler "Great tournament and a great atmosphere. Playing well makes it so much better and makes me really excited to play in this tournament in the future."
