Westmoreland wins Patriot All-America playoff
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (Dec. 31, 2013) -- Kyle Westmoreland prevailed in a playoff over Toni Hakula to win the 2013 Patriot All-America at The Wigwam Resort.

Hakula fired a 3-under 67 in Tuesday's final round to lodge himself in a playoff with overnight leader Kyle Westmoreland of the Air Force Academy. Both players birdied No. 18 to force the playoff.

In the playoff, Hakula, of the University of Texas, and Westmoreland went six playoff holes holes before Westmoreland birdied No. 18 to win the event.

It was a fitting victory for Westmoreland as the event goes to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Defending champion Sebastian Cappelen of Arkansas fired a 67 in the final round to jump into a tie for third place along side Taylor Moore and Thomas Lim. The trio finished just one shot outside the playoff.

Florida State's Hank Lebioda took solo sixth, firing three straight rounds of 1-under 69.

Launched in 2012 to keep collegiate golfers in action during what's widely considered college football bowl season, the Patriot All-America field is comprised of 84 of the previous season's Ping All-Americans from all three NCAA divisions as well as recognized All-Americans from the NAIA, NJCAA and AJGA.

The 54-hole event is put on by the Arizona Golf Association, the Golf Coaches Association of America and the Wigwam Golf Resort and goes to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation.
