The winner was ultimately decided by Matthew Sutherland after he chipped it in on Hole # 18 for an eagle. This eagle gave him a substantial lead that clinched this year’s winning title. His chip-in was witnessed by several fans along with his mom & dad and Grandpa & Grandma cheering him on. Mathew shot 11 under for a score of 133 to be this year’s WINNER. Matthew topped off his round with an Eagle & a 3-shot win.
