Brian Quackenbush (Augusta) wins the Champ Flight for the 2nd year in a row

2021 Reynolds Lake Oconee Classic Recap

Contributed by Sean Naylor


The Reynolds at Lake Oconee Classic in Greensboro, Georgia hosted players from 22 different tours in the fourth event in the 2021 Golfweek Amateur Tour Regional series. The National, a course made up of three, nine-hole layouts, offered many challenges. The field of 136 players proved to be up for it, and they didn’t disappoint!

Brian Quackenbush, from the Augusta Tour, took the top spot in the Championship Flight for the second year in a row by shooting a 3-under-par for the weekend (141). One stroke separated second and third place finishers Steve Kubik, also from the Augusta Tour, and Jason Ondriezek, an Atlanta Tour member. Kubik’s strong day-one performance was just enough to hold onto a 153-154 advantage at the tournament’s conclusion on Sunday. Will Nummy, from the Chicago Tour, shot a 156, placing fourth.


Saturday and Sunday rounds of 76 were good enough for Adam Davis (Augusta) to capture the A Flight win (152). Wayne McKenney, also from Augusta, wasn’t too far behind, shooting a 155 over the two days for second. James Peugh, a third Augusta member, placed third (158) while Leon Hunt, of the Columbia, SC Tour, carded a 161, good for fourth.


Jeff Duncan, an Eastern NC Tour member, beat Terry Dunn (Atlanta) in the first playoff hole to take the B Flight win. Both players shot a 173 as the round wrapped up on Sunday. Beth Hunt, a Myrtle Beach-Wilmington Tour member, and Matthew Fiedler, an Atlanta Tour member, both shot a 174, finishing in a two-way tie for third. Three players carded a 178, tying for fifth: Crys Peyton (Columbia, SC), Mike Anderson (August, GA), and Josh Smith (Las Vegas, NV).


Mark Rigby, an Alabama Tour member, consistently made shots throughout the tournament to hold onto the C Flight lead, and the eventual victory. Rigby carded a two-day total of 173. The flight’s next four finishers were separated by one stroke each: Mike Lovett (177) from Atlanta, Chris Winkler (178) from Augusta, Tony James (179) from Augusta, and Trevor Horne (180) from Eastern NC.


Wesley Nichols (Columbia, SC) earned the win in the D Flight with a combined two-day score of 185. Scott Holland (Augusta) placed second (189) while David Schimdt (Augusta), and Michael Moore (Atlanta), finished third (190) and fourth (191) respectively. Nick Taylor, from the DC Metro Tour, rounded out the top-5 with a 194.
