LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The final round of the Kentucky Amateur on June 18 was a hot and humid one at Big Spring Country Club. It was a white-hot fight to the finish, as well.

Logan Hogge of Salt Lick seemed to be in full control after shooting two-under-par on the first nine holes. 2013 Amateur Champion Tyler McDaniel of Manchester made a late charge -- making up 7 an amazing 7 shots -- to narrow Hogge's lead to a single shot with three holes to play.

Hogge, of Morehead State and McDaniel, of the University of Kentucky, both stumbled with double bogeys late in their round but Hogge was able to comfortably two-putt on the 18th hole for par and the victory.

Little did he know 2014 Kentucky Golf Association John Owens Player-of-the-Year, Denver Haddix, Jr. of Lexington and Drew Allenspach of Louisville were only a shot shy of him, after both golfers shot the round of the tournament, five- under- par 67, on Thursday afternoon.

"I was just trying to stick to my game plan," Hogge told the Louisville Courier- Journal. "I had played the back nine well all week. So I figured to get two or three birdies and nobody could catch me. And then I was like 'Uh, oh.'

Haddix and Allenspach shared the runner-Up title and trophy in 2015. This is Haddix’s second runner-up finished at the tournament while Allenspach celebrated his birthday during the final round.
