55-year old Mission Hills resident Bryan Norton claimed his third Kansas Amateur Championship on Sunday at Mission Hills Country Club. Norton, a member at the host club, defeated Wichita's Sam Stevens 2&1 in the 36-hole final match. Norton joined a very small crowd of Kansas golfers to have won at least three Kansas Amateur titles. Norton previously won the Kansas Amateur in 1980 and in 2002. Stevens was the runner-up for the second straight year having finished second in 2013 at Indian Hills Country Club. Stevens, who won the Kansas Boys Junior Amateur title in June, will begin his collegiate career next month at Oklahoma State University. Congratulations to the membership and staff for hosting a great championship on their one hundred anniversary! This will be the fourth time Mission Hills CC has hosted the Kansas Amateur. Previous years were 1979, 1989 and 2001. Click here for more information on the 104th Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship including pairings, results, course stats!
