U.S. Public Links champion Jordan Niebrugge won the Western Amateur final Monday, 3 and 2 over Sean Dale for his third win in three weeks.

PGA TOUR WIN LEADERS

Collecting trophies is a habit of Tiger Woods.

Niebrugge and Dale were tied playing the ninth hole Sunday when the final was suspended because of threatening weather. They resumed play Monday and Niebrugge won the first three holes, including birdies on the 10th and 11th, to take a 3-up lead with seven holes to play. Dale, a recent North Florida graduate, birdied 15, but bogeyed the par-3 16th to end the match.

Niebrugge, the 6-foot-4 Oklahoma State player from Mequon, Wis., followed his Public Links win with a victory in the Wisconsin State Amateur tourney. His next stop is the U.S. Amateur Aug. 12-18 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
