Luke Vivolo, a sophomore golfer for UC Davis, shot rounds of 68-69-137 to win the 2013 amateurgolf.com Tour Championship at Quail Lodge Golf Club on Sunday.
Vivolo was a two-shot winner over Santa Clara golfer Evan McLeod, who carded rounds of 70-69-139, by focusing on hitting fairways and greens. Vivolo hit his driver just four times in the entire event.
Three birdies along the way put Vivolo in good position and a clutch eight-foot par putt on No. 17 basically sealed the victory.
While playing for the Aggies this fall, his performance was highlighted by a 27th-place finish at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in October, helping UCD second place at the event. The locals return to competition in February.
