Chase chased down his third straight on the Silver Anniversary.

Chase Williams followed an opening round 68 with a 67 to take a seven-stroke win in the 25th Annual Corinth Invitational held Saturday and Sunday.

The event, formerly known as the City/County Championship, was christened in 1990 at Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club.

Ben Carroll finished second in the Championship Flight with a 142. Three-time champion Ronnie Fowler was third at 147.

Fowler garnered third place via a four-foot putt on No.1 in a playoff with Ryan Smith and three-time champion Gabe Null

Williams moved into a second-place tie with his third championship. Fowler, Williams, Gabe Null and Carroll Little -- who collected his trifecta over the first five events -- each sit three titles behind Pat Palmer’s record six.

Williams trails only Palmer -- five straight beginning in 1996 -- for consecutive championships.

Williams went wire-to-wire after opening with a 68 on Saturday. Chip Suggs and Derick Joslin were tied for second after the first 18 holes, with Ryan Smith right on their heels in third.

Following Saturday’s opening round, golfers enjoyed dinner at the clubhouse with entertainment by Hurricane Kevin and the Breeze courtesy of the Magnolia Regional Health Center.

This year’s event featured a team championship as well as the customary individual stroke play competition. Williams also took that title, teaming with Matt Grey for a 122.

Ben Carroll and Luke White were second at 124, with Alex Tull and Ronnie Fowler third with a 130.

Tull, who claimed the Class 3A individual title in his final high school appearance, also won the First Flight with a 154. Tom Budney was two strokes back.
