ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia Southwestern's Ethan Chamineak won the 2016 Hurricane Invitational Tuesday afternoon finishing 1-under. North Georgia won in the team standings.

Chamineak came into the final round 2 strokes behind Darton State's Finlay Mason.

The junior golfer shot a 72 on the third round this afternoon.

Mason shot in the same group as Chamineak, but finished second after shooting a 79--by far his worst round of the tournament.

Mason would finish 4-over. As for Chamineak, this is his 3rd career win and first in a hurricane uniform.

He said playing in the same group as a competitor like Mason helped.

"I knew coming into it that if I could beat him I'd have a pretty good shot," said Chamineak. "Because he was the only one I really knew about coming into here that's got a record of winning."

Chamineak will try to notch his 4th career victory at the Peach Belt Conference tournament which is less than 10 days away.
