Seaton now owns career grand slam

MT. CARMEL — Never mind that Christian Seaton is just now entering his second year at John A. Logan College. He was already within one win of completing a career grand slam of the major tournaments at the Mt. Carmel Golf Course.
Until Sunday.
Seaton, the ex-Golden Aces star who was a member of the 2010 IHSA Class 1A state championship squad, teamed with incoming Logan freshman jKody Rendleman to win the last major to elude him, the Two-Man Shamble.
The duo fired a 36-hole total of 124, good for a one-shot win over two of Seaton’s former Hilltop teammates, Tucker Guisewite and Chase Witsman.
“I told Kody that this is the only tournament I haven’t won at Mt. Carmel. I was tired of losing,” said Seaton. “I finally got it.”

Shamble tournament underway
