Former Washburn Golfer Wins TGA Match Play

Topeka, Kan. (WIBW) -- The final for the Topeka Golf Association's Match Play Tournament took place Sunday, at the Shawnee Golf Club.

One of the last two men standing was former Washburn golfer Brian Walker, who was also the defending champion, and number one seed. Walker's challenger was Chris McGown.

It was even early on, and each golfer matched each other hole after hole.

On the 15th hole McGown with a chance to make a move on Walker, sinks a huge putt. He said it was one of the longest he's made in a while.

But Walker answered, and hit a putt later on from about 15 feet away.

Brian Walker is the winner for the second straight year. His putting helped him win the Match Play Tournament.

Walker said, "Especially the back nine. The putts that I missed I felt like I hit pretty good putts, that just didn't fall for me. The long ones came at a pretty good time for me, and I don't know usually making long putts like that is a lot of luck.
