Champ fended off challenges from three college players and closed with a 1-under-par 69 for a three-round total of 6-under 204 and a two-shot win over Matt Hansen (69). Gunn Yang (69) and Jonny Baxter (71) were back-nine factors until late stumbles left them three shots behind…continue reading story by Steve Pajak at sacbee.com.
