Former UGA golfer earns sponsor exemption for Stadion

South Georgia Classic sponsor exemption Adam Mitchell fired a 5-under 67 and moved up to finish T15, which also earned him a spot in next week’s tournament in Athens, where he was a member of the Bulldog golf team and an All-America selection.

Mitchell graduated from Georgia in 2009 and was a member of the 2009 United States Walker Cup team. This was his sixth career start, dating back to 2008 when he finished T51 as an amateur at the Chattanooga Classic. Mitchell, an Atlanta resident, had made two previous cuts on Tour and his best finish was a T45 at the 2011 News Sentinel Open in Knoxville, Tenn.
