NASVILLE, Tenn. (June 30, 2013) — Sunday's final match in the Tennessee Match Play Championship belonged to 18-year old Zachary Olsen. He defeated Hunter Kraus, a native of Memphis and a senior at the University of Missouri, 4 & 3 in the 18-hole final.

The Cordova, Tenn. native Olsen cruised through his final three matches after winning a close 2 & 1 match in the round of 16 before winning his next three without needing to play the final three holes.

Olsen placed third at the Western Junior Amateur just a week ago.

ABOUT THE Tennessee Match Play

The first TGA State Amateur Championship was played in 1914. Originally it was conducted as match play, but since 1969 stroke play has decided the Tennessee Amateur Championship. After four years of competition in the mid-80s the Match Play Championship was revived in 2004 with 36-hole stroke play qualifying at the tournament site to set the field of 16 players in the match play bracket.
