Congratulations to Nic Mathis of Tucson, who won the U.S. Putting Tour event this weekend at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Arizona. The putting tournament was held in conjunction with the Golf Fest show, which took place at Longbow on February 12 and 13.
Nic, who shot the lowest score on Friday, competed in an 18-hole match play final against the Saturday winner, Bill Grieder of Phoenix. Nic was at his best in the finals, winning 6 and 5. He came out of the gates fast with three one-putts on the first four holes. In fact, Nic jumped out to a 4-up lead after four holes, then played conservatively until Bill ran out of holes.
Nic won his choice of 11 different vacation packages from Diamond Resorts International and a new Gauge Design putter from Whitlam Golf. As the low scorer on Saturday, Bill also won a Gauge Design putter.
