LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 15, 2014) -- Sahith Theegala of Chino Hills fired a final-round 65 to close a masterful run at the 97th annual Los Angeles City Championship Sunday.

Jon Levitt, Kyle George and Tim Hogarth, a longtime contender in Southern California events and six-time LA City champ, finished tied for second place. Levitt and Hogarth shot final-round 69s to climb the leaderboard.
Gunn Yang shot a final-round 67 to slide into fifth place.
