MIDWAY, Utah (AP) - T.J. Vogel made six birdies over a seven-hole stretch Saturday, coasting to a 12-and-10 win over Kevin Aylwin at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.
With the victory, the University of Florida senior earned a spot in the 2013 Masters.
Vogel seized control during the first 18 holes played in the morning, with birdies on the second and fourth to go 3 up. Aylwin bogeyed the first, sixth and eighth to drop back even further.
After going 5 up on the front nine, Vogel unleashed a flurry after the turn with birdies on the 12th, 13th and 14th holes. He closed with another three in a row to move 10 up after the morning session of match play.
A rainstorm at the start of the afternoon session did little to halt Vogel's momentum. Fittingly, he clinched the win with another birdie on the eighth hole.
