BLUFFTON, South Carolina (July 11, 2010) -- Two days after Oklahoma State teammate Peter Uihlein mounted a seven-shot win at the Sahalee Players Championship, Kevin Tway grabbed a seven-shot title of his own – winning the Players Amateur at Belfair Golf Club in Bluffton, S.C.

Tway closed with a bogey-free, 7-under 65 to finish at 14-under 274, topping Georgia Tech’s James White and Arkansas’ Ethan Tracy (281).

Tway played steadily in the first two rounds, firing 70 and 71, respectively. He caught fire on the weekend, turning in a 68 in Round 3 to set the stage for his closing 65. Tway was without a bogey for his final 27 holes.

Last year’s champion, Alabama’s Bud Cauley, finished at even-par 288, good enough for a share of 18th place.

Tway, No. 13 in the Golfweek/Sagarin college rankings, finished T-21 in last year’s Player’s Amateur. Fellow Cowboy Morgan Hoffmann finished T-25 at 3-over 291.
