Bozzelli fires final round 64, wins Eastern Am

Bozzelli and Beck entered the final round neck-and-neck, but Beck’s final round 68 only left him in Bozzelli’s wake.

Bozzelli turned in four rounds of 68 or better at the Portsmouth, Va., tournament, shooting 66-68-67 in the first three rounds. Beck (68-67-66-68) was the only other player to shoot four sub-70 rounds.

Aaron Stewart, a rising junior at SMU and son of former PGA Tour star Payne Stewart, finished T-16 at 7-over 277.
