Andy Sajevic bounced back after losing the lead with a third-round 82, by scoring a 3-under-par 69 to win his second consecutive men’s state amateur golf championship at Shadow Ridge Country Club.
The 20 year old trailed leader Tad Leistico by four strokes going into the final round. He jumped into the lead with one hole to go to beat his father, John Sajevic, and Ryan Nietfeldt by two strokes in the 103rd annual championship.
Coming from behind is something Andy is used to. The junior at North Carolina-Charlotte, rallied from five strokes back in the final round of last year’s tournament to beat Nietfeldt. Father, John finished third.
