Dalton Chandler came into the season with an eye on winning the Calhoun County Player of the Year. He’s off to a pretty good start.

The 21-year-old aspiring pro won his second County Tour event in three starts this year and the season’s first major when he shot 1-under-par 69 Sunday to complete a wire-to-wire win in the Wilfred Galbraith ACC Invitational at Anniston Country Club.

Chandler posted a three-day total 7-under 203 and won by four shots over Gary Wigington and 2015 champion Jeremy McGatha. He won the season opening Indian Oaks Championship and finished second in the Oxford City Championship.

Chandler never lost the ACC lead, but he and Wigington were tied through 13 holes Sunday. The turning point came on 14 when Wigington hit trees twice and double bogeyed, while Chandler made one of his five birdies in the round.

Other flight winners were Jordan Maynor, Billy Thompson, Chad Watson and Jerry Kemp.
