2013 Western Amateur Winner: Jordan Niebrugge

The 2013 champion Jordan Niebrugge, won the final match of the 111th Western Amateur, 3 and 2, over Sean Dale at the Alotian Club outside Little Rock. The final match was all square when it was suspended Sunday evening because of lightning and rain after both Dale and Niebrugge hit their approach shots toward the ninth green. When play resumed at 7 a.m. Monday, Niebrugge won the ninth with a par when Dale hit a poor chip and missed his 10-foor par putt. Niebrugge then birdied Nos. 10 and 11 to take a commanding 3-up lead within 36 minutes of the re-start. Dale managed a birdie 3 on the par-4 15th to cut Niebrugge’s lead to 2 up, but he immediately bogeyed the par 3 16th, where the match ended.
