Lyon Lazare of Villa Park, Calif. is the Gross Champion at the 2013 World Amateur Handicap Championship.

Lazare, a recent graduate from Chapman University, fired a 7-over 79 at the rugged Dye Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf Friday to win the gross flight's championship. Lazare tied senior champion Lynn Cormier in the final round but won in a tiebreaker.

The focus on a gross championship began this year. Sponsored by amateurgolf.com, prizes were awarded to low gross competitors in each of the World Am's five divisions. Low gross winners, and the overall gross champion, were awarded a 30th Annual World Amateur- logoed Original Bag from Jones Golf, an amateurgolf.com membership and more from our sponsors and partners.

Lazare, who's equally known for his skills as a musical composer and a golfer, medaled earlier this year in a local U.S. Open qualifier. As a senior at Chapman University, Lazare earned All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors thanks to an average round of 76.2 while leading his team in five of 12 rounds played.

Lazare won the Men 49-and-under division to advance to Friday's championship round. Other divisional low gross winners included: Mike Westrum, Lynn Cormier, Ray Darmstadt and Gigi Kimball.
