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.

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.
