November 14, 2022 – Lafayette, LA.
Greg Berthelot of Baton Rouge put together a dominant season to run away with Player of the Year honors. This is the first Player of the Year title for Berthelot after many successful seasons.
Berthelot began his season at TPC Louisiana for the 103rd Louisiana Amateur Championship. Berthelot came into the Championship as one of the favorites and put together an impressive performance. Berthelot shot rounds of 72-68-69-70 to hold off a weekend push from Charlie Flynn of Alexandria to win the biggest amateur Championship in the state by one stroke. This was the second Louisiana Amateur Championship victory for Berthelot. The first came in 2011 at Oakbourne Country Club in Lafayette. Berthelot’s next start would come at the 39th Louisiana Four-Ball Championship at Bayou Oaks at City Park (South Course) in New Orleans. Berthelot and Kyle Williams of Ruston came in looking to win their third Four-Ball Championship together. They would go on to shoot rounds of 64-66 to finish in a tie for fourth place. Berthelot would finish his season at Koasati Pines at Coushatta for the 30th Louisiana Mid-Amateur Championship. Berthelot was able to continue his strong play to win his first Mid-Amateur Championship. Berthelot trailed by three stokes going into the final round, but he shot the low round of the Championship, a 7 under par 65 to runaway from the field.
Congratulations to Greg on an outstanding season! We are excited to continue to watch Greg compete in amateur golf in Louisiana for many more seasons to come.
