SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - For the second year in a row, Scotty Patterson was involved in a playoff to finish off the Butch Lambert Invitational golf tournament. However, unlike in 2012, Patterson got the win at this year's event, knocking out three other competitors in a two-hole playoff.
Patterson entered Sunday's final round up one stroke on the field. At the end of his round, he should have remained one up on Corbin May, Mark Enis and Cameron Thomas, who all tied for second.
However, Patterson wrote down an incorrect score for his 17th hole, pushing him back into a four-way tie. The penalty for writing in an incorrect score is either having to take the written score if the written score is higher than what was actually shot, or disqualification if it is lower than what was actually shot.
"I was obviously frustrated and mad at myself and everything else," Patterson said. "Luckily, we had enough time between when it ended and when we started to kind of regroup and go down there and take a breath and just think to yourself and it worked."
After Enis and Thomas were knocked out on the first hole, Patterson drained a short par putt on the second hole of the playoff to win the tournament.
In the 2012 Butch Lambert Invitational, Patterson lost in a one-hole playoff to Rickey Riley.
