NORMAN – Oklahoma rising senior Quade Cummins took the title at the 2019 Pacific Coast Amateur Championship on Friday, winning by four shots.
The four-day stroke play event was held at the par-71, 7,535-yard University of New Mexico Championship Golf Course in Albuquerque, N.M.
Cummins posted a four-round total of 264 (-20), playing the final 54 holes at 16-under and logging just one bogey over the final three days of action.
The Weatherford, Okla., native opened the tournament with a 67 (-4) and grabbed the individual lead for good during Wednesday’s second round by firing a bogey-free 66 (-5).
Cummins followed up with his best round of the week by carding a 65 (-6) during the third round Thursday, before closing out the event with a 66 (-5) on Friday.
“I had a three-shot lead after nine,” said Cummins after the final round. “Then I went birdie, par, birdie, and it kind of separated me a little bit. I’ve never really been in a zone like that.
“I was just hitting to 20 feet and I was able to roll some in this week. This is definitely one of my better putting weeks. Golf is funny, last week I felt like I was playing the same and I finished around 40th, but just having some putts fall can change everything.”
Also representing the Sooners at the Pacific Coast Amateur were Riley Casey, Brad Dalke and Logan McAllister.
Casey posted a four-day 273 (-11) to tie for fourth place. Dalke shared 32nd place at 283 (-1), while McAllister tied for 39th at 285 (+1).
