JEFFERSON, MO (June 26, 2016) -- It took all 36-holes and a lengthy weather delay but in the end 40-seed Sam Migdal was able to claim the the Missouri Amateur title. Playing at Jefferson City Country Club Migdal was able to outlast recent Columbia (MO) senior, 11-seed Hunter Parrish by a 1 up tally.

Neither player was separated by more than a hole all afternoon long in a very compelling final match. Following the opening 18-holes that match was all-square and as the players traded holes the match was still tied through 30 holes. On the ensuing hole Migdal, a former Central Missouri player, rolled in a birdie and took a 1 up lead that he would then milk until he reached the house.

Migdal reached the finals with 1 up win over four-seed Brad Nurski while Hunter moved along thanks to a 1 up victory of his own over two-seed Joey Johnson.

Medalist Luigi Botta made it to the Round of 16 before falling to 16-seed Wayne Fredrick 2 up.
