Mason Overstreet Wins 2017 Patriot All-America Invitational

LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (December 31, 2017) – Mason Overstreet, a sophomore at the University of Arkansas, shot a final round 6-under par 64 to finish at 11-under par (199) for the tournament and win the 2017 Patriot All-America Invitational at The Wigwam in Litchfield Park, Ariz. Overstreet finished six shots ahead of Austin Eckroat of Oklahoma State (-5, 205), Patrick Fishburn of BYU (-5, 205), SM Lee from Dalton State College (-5, 205), George Cunningham from the University of Arizona (-5, 205), and Garrett May of Baylor University (-5, 205).

In May, Overstreet finished second to Braden Thornberry at the NCAA Individual Golf Championships at Rich Harvest Farms golf course in Sugar Grove, Illinois. Thornberry, the 2015 Patriot All-America champion and current number 2 ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, finished T15 with a final round 74 (210).

Overstreet, who is currently ranked 118th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and is from Kingfisher, Okla., played in honor of U.S. Army Sergeant Jesse J.J. Castro. Castro was killed during Operation Iraqi Freedom when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle while on patrol in Hawijah, Iraq. Each golfer playing in The Patriot All-America honors a fallen or severely injured soldier by carrying a golf bag bearing the name of that soldier. Before the tournament, participants receive a card with the soldier’s story, so they can be familiar with who that person was, what they represented and how they were killed or wounded in action.

With his Patriot All-America victory, Overstreet receives a sponsor exemption into the Web.com Tour’s 2018 Air Capital Classic played June 21 – 24 at Crestview Country Club in Wichita, Kan.

Overstreet’s -11 under par ties Cory Whitsett of the University of Alabama in 2011 for the lowest winning score in the tournament’s seven-year history.

Check out the top 5 shots of the week from The RSM Classic 2018, featuring Charles Howell III, Patrick Rodgers, Brendon Todd, Cameron Champ, and Webb Simpson.

The RSM Classic is contested on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort in Georgia. In 2017, Austin Cook held off veterans Brian Gay, Chris Kirk, Kevin Kisner and Brian Harman and closed with a 3-under 67 for a four-stroke victory over J.J. Spaun.


Confidence Factor: The RSM Classic

The golden road to the TOUR Championship ends the 2018 portion of the 2018-19 season schedule on the Golden Isles of Georgia this week at The RSM Classic at Sea Island Resort on St. Simons Island. Resort life is the calling again this week as the first full-field event of the season will have 156 players trying to capture the eighth trophy of the new season.

This is last call before the holidays and the final attempt to book a place at the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Maui to kick off the new calendar year in early January. The Seaside course will serve as host on the weekend, but everyone will get one chance at Plantation before the field is paired down to the top 70 and ties after Round 2.

Austin Cook picked up his first win on TOUR at this event last year and is back to defend his title.

In the opening round of the 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic, Patton Kizzire goes pin seeking at the par-4 6th hole, holing his approach for his second-straight eagle on the day.

The OHL Classic at Mayakoba returns to El Camaleon Golf Course (designed by Greg Norman) in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. In 2017, Patton Kizzire won his first PGA TOUR title on Sunday by beating Rickie Fowler in a 36-hole marathon, thanks to some weather that delayed Round 3. This year he returns to Mayakoba to defend his title against the likes of Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar.
