The 2009 Curry High graduate carded an 8-under par 63 in the opening round and followed it up with an even par 71 on Sunday to outdistance his nearest competitor, veteran Rene Williams (70-73), by nine strokes. Jett’s opening round featured only 27 putts.
“I stroked the ball well; hit a lot of greens and made a lot of putts,” said the 21-year-old Jett, who also plays golf at the University of Montevallo where he will be a junior this fall.
Only four other golfers broke par on Saturday.
Williams, Scotty Webb, Marc Wallace and Jody Quick each carded a 1-under par 70 to trail the eventual winner by seven strokes heading into Sunday’s final round.
Jett captured his first Bob Carr Club Championship in 2010 in a playoff. He finished second last year, just one shot behind Marc Wallace. He is the son of Mike and Lisa Jett of Jasper.
