JOHNSTOWN, PA (June 11, 2006)--At the 53rd Sunnehanna Amateur, Webb Simpson of Raleigh, NC, a junior at Wake Forest University, shot a closing 3-under-par 67 making a clutch birdie putt on the 18th hole to secure the lead and title at 4-under-par 276 over Seung-Su-Han of Henderson, NV, who shot a final round 66, and Tripp Kuehne, the third round leader who finished with a 73, both finishing tied for second place 3-under-par 277. Chris Kirk of Woodstock, GA, birdied the final hole to take fourth place at 2-under 278. Jason Day of Australia and Jarred Texter of Millersville, PA, both finished 1-under-par 279 to tie for fifth.

The Sunnehanna Amateur Tournament for Champions was started in 1954, and annually attracts one of the best fields in amateur golf. Using a format to invite players much like The Masters, invitations are essentially limited to those who have won major amateur tournaments or state-sanctioned championships.

ABOUT THE Sunnehanna Amateur

The Sunnehanna Amateur was inaugurated in July of 1954 -- it was the first country club sponsored 72-hole stroke play competition for amateurs in the United States. The tournament is played on a classic A.W. Tillinghast design. Only one other amateur tournament in the United States can list the likes of Chick Evans, Arnold Palmer, Julius Boros, Art Wall, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, and Rickie Fowler as contestants: the United States Amateur. Its medal play format has been emulated by countless amateur tournaments across the country.
