Bama Golfer Wins All-America Classic
Whitsett, a native of Houston, Texas, is the third Alabama player to capture medalist honors at the Western Refining All-America Golf Classic, joining Jerry Pate (1974) and Hunter Hamrick (2009).
Whitsett won on the third hole of the playoff defeating Missouri's Jace Long. San Diego State's Todd Baek was also in the playoff, but was eliminated on the first playoff hole.
Whitsett finished with a 7-under-par total of 206 after shooting a 3-under 68 in Tuesday's final round. He opened with back-to-back 69s in Monday's first two rounds.
Hamrick, a senior from Montgomery, Ala., finished tied for ninth place at even-par 213. It is his third top-10 finish in as many trips to the All-America Golf Classic. He shot rounds of 67, 72 and 72.
The Alabama team returns to the links on Feb. 19-21 at the Rio Mar Country Club in the Puerto Rico Classic.
