It has been a while since Chad Calvert felt this good on a golf course -- about as long as it's been since he felt he's played good golf.

He played pretty good golf at Anniston Municipal Sunday -- the whole weekend, really -- beating two of the top players on the Calhoun County Golf Tour to win the Calhoun County Match Play Championship.

Calvert, the No. 8 seed, beat good friend and carpool partner Ty Cole in the semifinals 5 & 3, and then birdied four of his last six holes in the championship match to defeat second-seeded defending champion Gary Wigington 1 up. It was his third win on the County Tour and first since the 2016 opener.
