It was Catlin's second title in as many months and the incoming senior at New Mexico took it by one shot over Brian Knoll, using opening rounds of 69 to distance himself from the field.
The Carmichael, Calif. native is no stranger to the winner's circle. In May, he won his second straight Memorial Amateur and defended his title at the Northern California Match Play Championship last year. He'll try for his third straight in August if the U.S. Amateur isn't in his immediate future. He is the first alternate from the Butte Creek qualifier after falling in a playoff following Monday's 36-hole qualifier.
All of his amateur success, of course, goes well with his solid play for the Lobos. This past season, Catlin earned All-American Honorable Mention honors thanks to his 12 Top-20 finishes in 14 events, including a win at the PING Arizona Intercollegiate in January. He was also named to the Mountain West All-Conference team.
