TREVOR WERBYLO WINS TUCKER AMATEUR
Trevor Werbylo (Tucson), out-dueled University of Arizona teammate Bradley Reeves (Woodbridge, CA) here at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club to win the 2020 Tucker Amateur. Werbylo fired a final round 5-under par 67. Ethan Chung (Eastvale, CA) and AJ Ott (Fort Collins, CO) tied for third place, four shots behind Werbylo. Werbylo made a 10 foot birdie putt on the final hole after Reeves narrowly missed a similar putt. Both players had birdied 16 and 17 to keep the tie heading into the 54th hole when Werbylo forged ahead.
The Tucker Amateur is named in honor of the University of New Mexico’s William H. Tucker Intercollegiate, which was scheduled to be competed this weekend. ‘The Tucker’ has one of the most vibrant histories in college golf. Competing unattached, many of the same players who compete in UNM’s Tucker competed this weekend in Arizona.
Troon Saguaro Amateur Series leader Finigan Tilly finished in a tie for 9thplace after a final round 66. The updated points list will be completed this week but expect Tilly to expand his lead.
