Beaufort’s Bruns ties for 3rd at Florence Junior


Beaufort’s Jerry Bruns continued his strong play last week with a top-three finish in the 70th annual Grant Bennett Florence Junior at the historic Country Club of Florence. 

Bruns raced out to the 18-hole lead with a blistering 5-under-par 66 in the opening round, but he was unable to maintain the incredible pace and hold off a strong field of golfers from throughout the Palmetto State. 

The rising junior at Beaufort High School was just one shot off the pace after shooting even-par 71 in the second round, but he could get only one birdie putt to drop in a final round 72 as Greenville’s Walker Jennings carded three straight rounds in the 60s to finish at 8 under and win by three shots over Rowan Sullivan of Charleston. 

Bruns finished tied for third with Simpsonville’s Major Lenning.
