Ellis Wins Farm Bureau Invitational

The Farm Bureau Invitational came to an almost thrilling conclusion. Otherwise known as the Mississippi Open, pro's go head to head with amateurs.   Tunica National Golf Club was the site this year where Ole Miss golfer Kyle Ellis came in with a two stroke lead, over professional Olly Thompson.

Thomson had tied things up by the 7th hole.  But it's Ellis who pulled away on the back 9. He shot a 2 under 70 to win the tournament at 7 under par. The Senatobia amateur out-dueled the pro's.  

Tunica National head pro Bob Wolcott tied for 3rd at 1 under for the tournament.
