ABILENE, Texas -

Blake Trimble (Houston, TX) posted a bogey free, final round 8-under 63 to come from behind and earn his first professional win by one stroke.  He finished at 19-under-par total.

Trimble was in the middle portion of the tee times to start the day.  After birdies on 3 of his final 5 holes, the waiting game began to see how the last few groups would finish.  Jordan Russell (College Station, TX) and Mark Walker (Hurst, TX) were paired together in the 2nd to last group of the day.  Neither one of them could make birdie on the final two holes to match Trimble.  Once this was realized, it came down to the final two holes for the last group of the day.  After a bogey at Par 4, Hole 16 – Mark Stevens made birdie at Par 5, Hole 17.  He needed birdie on the final hole, but was unable to make a long putt to tie.


Abilene native – Bill Allcorn – posted a 1-over-par 72 on the final day.  He finished T13 at 11-under-par total.  Former ACU golfer – Cyril Bouniol – also posted a 1-over-par 72.  He finished alone in 15th place at 10-under-par total.
