Sam Stevens Wins 105th Kansas Amateur

Daily Recap & Photo Gallery

After two consecutive heart-breaking losses in the Kansas Amateur Match Play finals, Sam Stevens prepared his game, his strategy and his mind for a championship this year at his boyhood golf course, Wichita Country Club.  On Sunday his golf skills and mental toughness propelled him to his first Kansas Amateur championship title in an unbelievably competitive see-saw battle with Matt Green, a collegian of impressive talent as a Kansas State junior.

Stevens, an Oklahoma State sophomore, began the week-long championship with “statement” rounds on Tuesday and Wednesday, the stroke play days.  His 11-under par total of 131 gave him the #1 seed as the medalist, four strokes better than two others at 135, one of whom was Matt Green.  The only reason Green was the #3 seed was that #2 went to Conrad Roberts based on his earlier finish.  Both Stevens and Green marched through the match play bracket knowing that the two Big 12 Conference golfers could meet in the finals.  Stevens had his toughest early matches against other Wichita Country Club members in Pete Krsnich and Christian Spencer.  Green had to take out another Wichita CC member in Max Lazzo in the semifinals.  After five match wins the hole-by-hole review of the two finalists showed that both Stevens and Green could make a lot of birdies, maybe an eagle or two, and that the finals could be very exciting.  They did not disappoint.

Both players birdied the opening hole for a halve and those few spectators arriving for the 7:30 a.m. start knew they were about to witness a classic battle.
