OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (July 27, 2016) -- No. 3 Quade Cummins completed his run to the Oklahoma State Amateur title with a 2 up victory in the championship match against No. 28 Tate Williamson. The two won semifinal matches earlier in the day at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club to advance to the finals.
Cummins, a rising redshirt sophomore at Oklahoma won a tightly contested final match. Williamson won the first hole and then after the match was squared on the 2nd hole, he won the 3rd hole to go 1 up. From there Cummins went on a run, winning Nos. 4, 5 and then the 9th and 10th holes to grab a 3 up lead.
With Cummins seemingly in control Williamson, a senior at Northeastern State, won the 11th and 14th holes to climb within 1 down with four holes remaining. Now attempting to kill the surge Cummins won No. 15, only to have Williamson answer back with a victory on the 16th. Following a halve on No. 17 the players headed to the final hole with the difference at one, until Cummins won the 18th to finish off Williamson.
Cummins advanced to the finals with a 4&3 semifinal win over No. 34 Drew Posada. The match was all-square after six-holes before Cummins won four of the next five holes to take command of the match.
In the other semifinal Williamson defeated eight-seed Mike Hearne 1 up. Hearne held a 2 up lead after 12 holes, only to watch Williamson win the 13th, 15th and 17th holes to take the match.
