BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - UAB junior Thomas Sutton lost in dramatic fashion to Casey O'Toole in the 12th State Match Play Championship at Lakewood Golf Club in Point Clear, Ala.
After battling back-and-forth throughout, the duo finished Saturday afternoon's 18 holes all square and headed to extra holes.
Sutton looked to be in line for a title when he hit his second shot on the par 5 first hole to within 15 feet. However, O'Toole, a senior at Samford, chipped in for eagle from 80 feet away. Sutton could not sink his eagle putt, resulting in the title for O'Toole.
