Red-Hot Yun wins the Dogwood

After making history at Druid Hills Golf Club earlier in the week, Andrew Yun held on for a one-shot win Saturday at the Dogwood Invitational.

Yun, a rising sophomore at Stanford, shot a second-round 10-under 62 at the Atlanta course, which ties the course record set by Tour player Webb Simpson at the 2008 Dogwood Invitational. The round gave Yun the lead after his first-round 66, and he never looked back.

It’s the second week in a row a Stanford player has won big on the amateur circuit, after recent graduate Joseph Bramlett’s Northeast Amateur victory.

Yun, of Chandler, Ariz., closed the week with two more rounds under par (71-69) to get to 20-under 268 for the championship. His win comes on the heels of a T-4 at the Northeast Amateur, and moves him from No. 17 to No. 5 in the Golfweek/amateurgolf.com Men's World Rankings.

Anders Albertson, of Atlanta, finished one shot behind Yun after carding nearly identical rounds. Albertson’s best effort was a first-round 9-under 63 that gave him the early lead. He followed with rounds of 66-71-69. Albertson has committed to Georgia Tech.

Bryden Macpherson, a rising sophomore at Georgia, and Connor Arendell, a rising junior at UCF, tied for third at 15-under 273.

Three more players were at 14-under 274, including Si Hwan Kim, Yun’s teammate at Stanford.

Cory Whitsett, the 2007 U.S. Junior Amateur champion who will play for Alabama in the fall, recorded a solid finish - a tie for eighth, at 13-under 275.
