The Georgia Open, which will feature the state's top professional and amateur golfers, is being held Aug. 6-9, 2020, at Jennings Mill Country Club in Bogart, Ga.

On July 20, 2020, the Fellowship Christian School graduate carded a 3-under par 69 to claim second place at a Georgia Open qualifier held at Coosa Country Club in Rome, Ga.

Murphy finished just one stroke behind the qualifying event's winner, Luka Karaulic of Dacula, Ga.

Murphy, who recently completed his sophomore year at Oglethorpe, had a huge improvement in this year's qualifier.
