EDMOND, Okla. (July 12, 2012) -- U.C. Davis senior Tyler Raber outlasted a talented field of amateur players and a long day of golf at one of the Midwest’s most challenging facilities in winning the 109th Trans-Mississippi Championship Thursday at Oak Tree National in Edmond, Okla.
Raber held off University of Iowa’s Steven Ihm by a single shot with his final 1-over par 72. Earlier in the day Raber had posted a 4-over par 75 in the third round and trailed Arkansas’ Austin Cook by one stroke heading into the final round.
Ihm placed second after rounds of 72 and 73 the final day. Cook finished in third place overall after rounds of 71 and 76. Oklahoma City’s Jeff Coffman was the low mid-amateur with a 72-hole total of 295.
Next year’s championship, the 2013 Trans-Miss, will be held at The Meadow Club near San Francisco.
