Hale, a Tullahoma. Tenn., resident, finished the tournament with a score of 202, 11 under par. He shot a 68 in the final round after firing a 64 the day before in the second round.
Hale completed his eligibility at Lipscomb this past spring.
The SunTrust State Open Championship is one of Tennessee's oldest and most prestigious championships. The event annually pits the state's top amateurs and professionals against each other to determine a true state golf champion.
