Simmons reclaims City Championship

1 min read

Rob Simmons ran away from the field to claim an 11-shot victory at the Beaufort City Championship over the weekend, capturing the title for a record fourth time.

Simmons carded rounds of 67 and 66 for a 10-under-par total at Fripp Island Club, easily claiming the title over runner-up Matt O’Quinn. Defending champion Patrick Mitchell tied for third at 4-over.

Simmons was the only player to break par Saturday on the Ocean Point course, as he carded six birdies and one bogey en route to a 67 and a six-shot lead entering the final round. Simmons didn’t let up on Sunday on the Ocean Creek course, making seven birdies and just one bogey to card a 66.

Simmons, who previously won the event in 2011, 2014 and 2015, broke a tie with Mark Anderson for the most titles in the history of the tournament.

Dan Bostick won the pro division, shooting 1-over to hold off Jeff Pinckney by six shots.
