Robert Mize, son of Columbus native and Masters’ champion Larry Mize. won the Georgia Amateur Championship Sunday in Macon.

He had a four stroke lead with two holes to play, and he held on for the win even after a triple bogey on 17.

Mize was three under par for the final round and five under for the tournament. We spoke to his proud father on the phone after the tournament.

“I'm just so happy for him. I am proud of him no matter what. I'm proud of my son for who he is. To see him win after the hard work he has put into his game, he loves to play. I'm just very happy and excited for him,” said Larry Mize.

Mize will not get much rest. Robert is playing in U.S. amateur qualifier tomorrow. That is in Decatur Alabama
