Holliday's Lawson Makes Run at Okla. Amateur

Holliday native and Cameron golfer Trey Lawson is through to second-day action at the Oklahoma State Amateur Championship!

In first-round action Monday he beat Chris Karlovic of Tulsa in a 6&5 rout.

Then he followed that up with a 3&1 win over Michael Hughett of Owasso.

Tuesday, in the Round of Sixteen, he'll face a golfer familiar to Texoma golf followers, 2009 T.O. Junior Champion Hunter Sparks, who plays for Wichita State.

They tee off at 8:35 a.m.

Here is Cameron University's release on Lawson's run:

Trey Lawson came into the Oklahoma Golf Association State Amateur Championship as an underdog ranked 55 out of the 64 golfers competing in the tournament.  He is now in the sweet sixteen after a pair of upsets today at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa.

In the first round Lawson defeated the 10th ranked golfer, Chris Karlovich, from Broken Arrow up six holes with five holes to go.  Later in the afternoon Lawson defeated the 40th ranked player Michael Hughett up three holes with one hole left in the second round.

Lawson will now continue tomorrow against the tournament's 7th ranked golfer, Hunter Sparks, from Oklahoma City, at 8:35 a.m.

"I'm really excited for Trey, he has worked really hard and came here as a walk-on and he just keeps working and getting better and better," said head coach Jerry Hrnciar. "This is the top 64 players based on qualifying in the state and he has gone from the top 64 down to 16, so this is going to be a feather in his cap because there are some top college players and amateurs who know that course." 

"Trey has done really well for himself, Cameron, and the golf program."

Lawson will be a senior this season and helped the Aggies win the 2012 Lone Star Conference Championship and also qualified for the NCAA Division II National Championship finishing the tournament in 39th place.

To follow Lawson throughout the tournament you can go to the OGA State Amateur Website.
