Already owning a five-stroke lead going into the second round of the Tom Dinsdale Automotive Amateur Golf Classic, Luke Kluver just wanted to a have a strong finish.
The Norfolk did just that. After shooting a 66 on the first day, Kluver, who competes for the University of Kansas, followed with a 67 to take the two-day tournament with a 133 total score Sunday at Riverside Golf Club.
It was the second time Kluver has won the event as he captured the tournament in 2018.
His two-day score was one stroke off the tournament record, which was set by Columbus’ Mike Krumland when he fired a 132 two-day total during the 2006 tournament.
Kluver said he was happy with what he did to win the amateur tournament.
“To be able to follow up with what I had yesterday felt really good,” Kluver said. “To win another tournament and to play a solid 36 holes feels great as well.”
Kluver made six birdies and one bogey on Sunday. Two of those birdies came on the first and third holes.
Kluver had a tough up and down on the first hole and was able to hit the ball inside a foot to the hole. He followed that with what he said was a great putt on the third hole.
“That helped me get off to a solid start today so that gave me a lot of confidence,” Kluver said. “With the lead I had to sleep on, those holes helped me get off to a great start and cruise the rest of the way.”
