Cameron Champ shot a final round 69 to finish at 6-under 204 and win the annual Memorial Amateur Championship at par-70 Ancil Hoffman Golf Course by two over runner-up Matt Hansen.
Hansen also shot a final round 69 to come in at 206. Jonny Baxter and Gunn Yang finished tied for third at 207.
Champ, who finished second at the recent NCGA Four-Ball Championship with partner Gary Dunn, had one of the biggest shots in the finale, lacing a 4-iron to within a foot of the hole on the par-3 9th for an easy tap-in birdie that gave him a four shot lead at the turn.
Champ, a home schooled senior, made his biggest move on Sunday by posting a 65. Champ will begin playing at Texas A&M in the fall.
