Kyle Kochevar wins Patriot All-America in playoff
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (Dec. 31, 2014) — A sudden-death playoff was needed to decide the Patriot All-America on Wednesday at Wigwam Resort's Gold Course as Virginia junior Kyle Kochevar ousted Arizona freshman George Cunningham to take home the title.
Kochevar and Cunningham finished the 54-hole tournament as the only two players under-par, and were also the only players to post under-par scores in the final round.
Kochevar carded two-under 68 while Cunningham's final-round 66 was the lowest round of the tournament, both played in cold, wet conditions. Cunningham needed three back-nine birdies to force his way into the eventual two-hole playoff.
University of Oregon sophomore Thomas Lim took third at even-par, followed by his freshman teammate Aaron Wise at one-over.
Wise held the 36-hole lead but shot 74 on the final day to to finish two back.
