Brenton played golf for Hayfield for 3 years, 1999 – 2002.  During his career at Hayfield, Brenton placed 2nd in the Patriot District Championship in both his Junior and Senior years.  It’s worthy to note that Brenton finished tied for the lead both years but ultimately lost in playoffs.  He went on to play college golf at Belmont University in Nashville, TN (2002-2006).  He currently makes his home in Nashville.  Congrats and Good Luck to Brenton!
