Utah’s amateur take home trophies in all divisions from SunRiver Golf Club, Nov. 13-14.

Cooper Jones, the 17-year-old Utah Golf Association Men’s Player of the Year, put some icing on the cake of his impressive 2021 season by winning the Southern Utah Open at SunRiver Golf Club November 13-14.

Jones fired a (-10) 66-66 – 132 to win the event by three-strokes over St. George resident and first-round leader Caden Hamill, who finished (-7) 65-70 – 135 for low-pro honors and the $1,800 first place pro check.

“The putter,” Jones said, “the putter felt really good this week. I haven’t had a tournament for a while so I was excited to come down here. Feels good to play well.” Jones carded 11 birdies and only one bogey for the event.
