BATON ROUGE - Despite a scary 18th hole, Greg Berthelot won his third Louisiana Amateur Championship Sunday at the Country Club of Louisiana.

Berthelot came into Sunday's final round as the leader at 6-under and extended his lead to four strokes after a birdie on 16 got him to 9-under par.

Berthelot stood on 18 tee with that four-shot lead, but after his third shot clipped a tree and found the water, he needed all of his cushion.

Berthelot carded a triple-bogey on 18, but his 6-under par score for the week was good enough to beat Ponchatoula's Jarrod Johnson by a stroke.

The win gives Berthelot a berth in the 2024 U.S. Amateur at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.
