NASVILLE, Tenn. (June 30, 2013) — Sunday's final match in the Tennessee Match Play Championship belonged to 18-year old Zachary Olsen. He defeated Hunter Kraus, a native of Memphis and a senior at the University of Missouri, 4 & 3 in the 18-hole final.

The Cordova, Tenn. native Olsen cruised through his final three matches after winning a close 2 & 1 match in the round of 16 before winning his next three without needing to play the final three holes.

Olsen placed third at the Western Junior Amateur just a week ago.
