TROUP — Cameron Brown of Jacksonville won his second NTPGA Junior Tour tournament in the past eight days when he took first place in the Hilltop Country Club (Troup) tournament which was contested on Thursday.

Other golfers of note that competed in the segment were Troup's Jamey Scruggs (5th place, 78) and Cash Cleaver of Jacksonville who ended the day in 7th place, firing an 87.
