MENASHA, WI (July 21, 2016) -- Former Marquette golfer Nick Nelson shot a final round 69 to win Wisconsin State Amateur at North Shore Golf Club Thursday.

Nelson's two birdie and one bogey effort was good enough to overcome third-round leader Thomas Longbella who struggled to a final-round 73 (3-over). Nelson finished the tournament with a 4-under total while Longbella finished at 1-under.

Charles Maleki finished in solo third at even-par for the tournament.

ABOUT THE Wisconsin State Amateur

This event has been conducted annually since 1901. The format, originally match play, was changed to a 72-hole stroke-play event in 1971. The State Amateur, contested over four consecutive days, is annually conducted on one of Wisconsin’s finest courses and continues to be recognized as the premier amateur tournament held in Wisconsin. A three-man team competition, the Yule Cup, where players representing the same club compete for the Cup, is also held. To be eligible, players must have a WSGA Handicap Index of 9.4 or less.
