Wigingtons sweep rain-shortened Anniston CC Parent-Child Tournament 

By East Alabama Sports Today

Three generations of Wigingtons swept the Parent-Child Tournament on Father’s Day at Anniston Country Club.

Gary Wigington won the Adult Flight with his father, Bob, on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff and won the Junior Flight with his son, Peyton. They posted a 3-under-par 67.

The Wigingtons won the playoff over the teams of Rob Svensen-Jack Svensen and T.J. McGatha-Jeremy McGatha.

All three teams parred 16, the Wigingtons and Svensens moved on with birdies on 17, and then Gary Wigington made a 15-foot birdie putt on 18 to win it.

“It was a really good day,” Gary said. “It was very special to me because I really wanted Peyton to see how it feels to win a golf tournament. Also, I’m not sure how many more my dad can play in so it was huge for him as well.”

Jonathan and Mike Whitlow won the net division with 61.
