“I have played solid, but I have not played close to my potential,” a confident yet humble Mitchell said.
His outlook on “solid” play differs from many others who would call it outstanding play. From January up to now Mitchell has won three different tournaments and placed very well in many others.
In Gulf Shores, Alabama he beat over fifty quality opponents to finish in first. Later he did the same at the Lafayette Country Club in Litchfield, Kentucky, shooting a 72 and winning the tournament.
He then beat over 70 golfers by shooting a 73 at the State Amateur Qualifier in Madisonville, KY. That score was good enough to claim first place and it qualified him to play in the State Amateur Open, where he played against golfers anywhere from 17 to 60 years of age. He missed the cut by a single stroke.
